New fruits of the vine

Dion Teasdale reported in the Healesville, Victoria-based Mountain Views Mail on 13 September 2005 that leading wine industry experts were given a glimpse of the soon-to-be-opened Giant Steps winery in Healesville in early September as part of the sixth Yarra Valley Wine Program.

About 50 nationally and internationally recognised wine writers, restaurateurs and wine buyers gathered in the Yarra Valley for the program on 7–8 September.

One of the highlights was a tasting of 16 Yarra Valley-grown and produced Chardonnays at the Giant Steps winery.

Founded in 1997 and held biennially, the Wine Program includes intensive seminars which evaluate about 80 Yarra Valley wines in a forum style.

Winemakers from 18 participating wineries prepare and lead the advanced seminars, with interactive discussion a key element.

Now recognised as one of the most significant wine trade events in Australia, this year’s program was moderated by wine writer and Yarra Valley resident, James Halliday.
