Try your hand at winemaking (and wine drinking) at this five-week mini festival at Melbourne's first urban winery.
Peel off your socks — it's grape-stomping time. The crew at Noisy Ritual, Melbourne's first urban winery, are celebrating the start of another wine season with their very own festival. We're talking five straight weeks of eating, drinking, live music and winemaking, otherwise known as four of the great things life has to offer.
From Saturday, March 4, Noisy Ritual HQ in Brunswick East will throw open their doors to the wine-loving public. Join founders Alex and Cam for a free hands-on tour between 6pm to 8pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays throughout the festival, when you'll be able to help out with the winemaking process. Then swing by Saturday night for live music acts including Jess Ribeiro, Jess Cornelius, Leah Senior and Davey Lane.
They're also extending their cellar door opening hours, giving you extra time to knock back the 2016 vintage. As for food, you can order pizza courtesy of Mankoushe up the road, or feast on cheese until you can barely get out of your chair.
