The Vintner’s Daughter creates unique wines that reflect the land or ‘terroir’ in the premium Canberra District wine region at Murrumbateman.

Family owned, handcrafted wines

The Vintner’s Daughter was established by husband and wife team, Steph Helm and Ben Osborne, in 2014 in the village of Murrumbateman on Ngunnawal country.

Both are accomplished wine industry professionals—Ben has over a decade of experience managing vineyards and Steph made her first wine when she was just 9 years old, following in the footsteps of her winemaker/vintner father, Ken Helm.

Together Ben & Steph control the entire process from vine to glass.



With vines dating back to 1978 and situated next to some of Murrumbateman’s most renowned vineyards, the winery is in a beautiful and enviable location. Taste and purchase wines at the on-site cellar door overlooking peaceful vineyards. Open Friday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm.

For an immersive experience book a private wine tour with the winemaker.  We also offer farm tours where you can meet our array of farm animals including our unique vineyard workers – Babydoll sheep!
