Giant Steps - Deriving Name From Music Album to Label Wines


Sometimes people’s lives are inspired by someone. This inspiration gives reasons to work and to live. Giant Steps, a winery of the Yarra Valley, is a name which resulted due to a similar inspiration which its owner, Mr Phil Sexton, drew from the visionary album of renowned saxophonist John Coltrane. That album of 1950s was Giant Steps and being an ardent lover of this album, Phil named his wine label after it.

Giant Steps wine range is acclaimed nationally as well as internationally. It has won 19 trophies since 2003 and a number of Gold Medals at various wine events. Within the Yarra Valley region, Giant Steps has three vineyards- Sexton, Applejack and Terraford. From these vineyards, the winery produces its range of wines. Giant Steps boasts of the following wine ranges which are expressive of the character of terroir of this region. These are:

The Yarra Valley Range
