Glad you asked.
Noisy Ritual is an urban winery in Brunswick East. In Autumn each year we transport fresh grapes from a network of growers throughout Victoria and turn them into delicious wine right here in the big smoke. It's a messy, fun, rowdy time when we throw our doors wide open to let as many people as possible experience the joy of making wine.
There are heaps of ways for you to get involved - winemaking workshops, winery tours, free live music, great food and more.
Noisy Ritual was built on a philosophy of celebration - we think making wine should be relaxed, loud, inclusive and fun. Jump on in and get your hands (and possibly feet) dirty in the name of making some damn tasty wine.
Vintage is the time of year when our winery is in full flight. So throughout vintage we’re offering guided tours with one of our founders - to walk you through the process and see how the wine in your hand actually gets made. There’s work to be done too, so make sure you’re ready to roll up your sleeves (and maybe your pants) and get involved!
Tours are just $10 which includes a drink on arrival. Places are limited so sign up here.
WORKSHOPS (Members only - SOLD OUT)
The bulk of the winemaking will happen on the weekends, when we run our Winemaking Membership workshops. Each Member works with us to follow one of our red wines all the way through. Surrounded by likeminded folk, they stomp the grapes, press the wine and bottle it – all in a relaxed, fun and inclusive environment. Three educational, social, fun and rowdy workshops, and a whole lot of amazing wine to be created and enjoyed.

Each week there’ll be something new to try - from our unreleased 2018 reds to some weird and wonderful things (ever tasted fermenting grapes?). Whenever you walk through the door we’ll start you off with a taste of something interesting.
For us, Vintage means party time, so don’t miss our nightly happy hours 5pm-7pm Wed-Fri! During these times we'll be doing Members’ pricing on glasses of wine for everybody.
*Venue is closed on Wed 13 March
We're super pumped to announce our music line-up for Vintage 2019!

The Noisy Ritual kitchen has officially opened its doors this year with a beautiful new menu. It's local, organic, simple homestyle cooking from the heart. Delicious wine-friendly food built for sharing. We've teamed up with people we know and love to bring a heap of beautiful produce to the table.
We hope you love it.
A few years ago we found a concrete wine fermenter under Cam's house. Alex organised half a tonne of premium shiraz grapes and we invited some mates around to help us stomp them. It was messy, low-tech, and heaps of fun.
Delicious wine was made. Noisy Ritual was born.
We’re out to demystify the winemaking process by bringing good people together over great wine, food and music to learn about, taste and create wine in the big smoke. Get involved.
