Giant Steps is a privately owned Yarra Valley producer that has forged a reputation for making some of the Yarra Valley’s most consistently exciting wines from estate-owned vineyards. Head winemaker Steve Flamsteed and his team aim is to express in each wine the character of the site, grape and vintage, and this they achieve by meticulous work in the vineyard and minimum intervention in the winery.
With a history spanning over 175 years, there’s no doubt that Yarra Valley is one of Australia’s most celebrated cool climate wine regions and Victoria’s first wine growing district. The wines are produced using indigenous yeasts, gravity-flow winemaking, and minimal fining and filtration. This approach produces highly expressive wines, true to the climate, soil and topography of the Yarra Valley.
From the vineyard to the bottle, every aspect of the Giant Steps process is geared towards making truly world-class wines. This is a superb entry point into the world of premium Yarra Pinot Noir. Steve Flamsteed is considered one of the modern masters of Yarra winemaking. For three years running, Wine and Spirit Magazine have named them as one of the Top 100 wineries in the world. 2017 was exceptional vintage.
