About Noisy Ritual

Noisy Ritual is a unique independent urban winery in Melbourne.

Founded by two mates (Alex & Cam) after the serendipitous discovery of a wine fermenter in a suburban basement, we're now a full scale winery making premium wine in the city using grapes sourced from vineyards all over Victoria.

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.
