Australia’s Giant Steps Innocent Bystander Winery & Healesville

Giant Steps Innocent Bystander Winery is an interesting name for a winery.  It makes no damn sense at all.  BUT it’s provocative!

Okay.  It isn’t really provocative.  Well, the winery didn’t have any giant steps and the steps to the entrances were quite normal to me.  Maybe it’s a metaphor for how it feels after you had a couple of crates of wine.

We stopped by Giant Steps after a day at Marysville.  It was a great choice.  They had a great beer selection and the pizza was damn good.  It’s definitely up there with the NYC and Chicago pizza I’ve had.  It’s in my top 3 for sure.  We had the Spicy Pork pizza.

It was a thin pizza.  It’s not as thin as NYC’s flat and fold-able pizza, but it had a crispy and crunchy dough to it like Chicago’s pizza.  I guess it’s the best of both worlds.  The Spicy Pork wasn’t spicy but more for flavor.  It wasn’t a pork belly but ground pork. It had loads of fat mixed in it like me every new year before my new year’s resolution that I roll forward every year.  Pun intended.  Get it?  Roll?  Roll forward?

The service was great.  The waitress was really helpful and had recommendations on items on the menu.  The winery itself was very pretty.  It had a very modern rustic feel to it if there is such a thing.  Well, if there isn’t, there is now.  Overall, it’s a great spot to grab a drink and have some pizza.  It’s a really cool winery and totally unpretentious like other renowned wineries.  *cough Napa cough* *cough Alsace cough* *cough Bordeaux*

UPDATE:  Apparently it has moved location.

Summary

Giant Steps is a great option after a day in Marysville or Yarra Valley. The place as a great beer and wine selection and it’s pizza is solid.
