This winery changed hands in May 2016, being bought by family owned wine company, Brown Brothers, its founder, Phil Sexton. So associated is Innocent Bystander with the Yarra Valley that Brown Brothers made the intelligent decision to build a new winery in Healesville, just across the parking lot from Giant Steps. Keen to keep the style and identity of the winery Brown Brothers quickly signed contracts with all the grape growers that Phil used for Innocent Bystander, so that the style of the wines remains unchanged. That style - wines that are regional and varietal, reflecting the soil, climate and topography of the cool climate in the Yarra Valley – has been the base upon which the reputation of Innocent Bystander has been built.
