Helen's Hill Estate

Seville Hill are instrumental in blending together the grapes grown from the rich red volcanic soils of our Seville property. The cool climate of the Yarra Valley region, hints of oak, traditional and modern wine making techniques are used to create soft, smooth and classic selections that will bring pleasure to those who enjoy fine wines.
Five Oaks Vineyard

When Leon and Rita Tokar purchased the property of Tokar Estate in June 1995, the land was covered in thistles, tussock grass and snakes. The plan was initially to produce grapes for their own consumption only – “to play at making wine ourselves, for ourselves”.
The timbered hills and grassy pastures to the south of the Yarra Valley have a relaxed feel and Whispering Hills fits in perfectly. The vines grow in a natural amphitheater above Seville, and there's a comfy corrugated iron and timber cellar door. Taste the good quality, fruit-driven wines made from low-yielding vines, and if you're all tasted out after a day in the Valley, revive here with a good espresso and cake.
