Giant Steps

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Healesville, Australia

Giant Steps Winery, established in 1997 in the scenic Yarra Valley, is renowned for producing expressive wines with purity and finesse. Founded by Phil Sexton, a wine industry pioneer, the winery focuses on highlighting the unique characteristics of their vineyard sites across the Yarra Valley. Phil discovered the perfect location in the Sexton vineyard near Gruyere, naming the winery after John Coltrane’s album, “Giant Steps.” With Winemaker Steve Flamsteed on board since 2003, they have elevated Australia’s reputation for cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir through meticulous vineyard management and a loyal following.

Giant Steps prides itself on nurturing their vineyards to allow the distinct attributes of each site to shine through in their wines. They offer two ranges: the Single vineyard range, which captures the essence of each of their six vineyard sites using the most expressive fruit of the vintage, and the Yarra Valley range, showcasing the best the region has to offer. Embracing a philosophy that combines nature and science, Giant Steps operates a gravity flow winery, ensuring minimal intervention in the winemaking process. This approach preserves the integrity and individual qualities of each vineyard in the Yarra Valley.

Over the course of more than two decades, Giant Steps has established itself as a leading producer of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Their commitment to excellence and their loyal followers has propelled them to new heights, solidifying their place in the Australian wine industry.
