Noisy Ritual Pop-Up Fermentation Bar
Urban winery Noisy Ritual has a tradition of giving the public an opportunity to participate in the wine-making process. Each vintage, Melburnians sign up to help Noisy Ritual winemakers produce and ferment a handful of the cellar door’s approximately 15 drops produced each year. And by night, the winery opens to the public as a wine bar and event space.
From Wednesday March 20 to Saturday March 30, is taking its participatory model of fermentation to Victoria Harbour for a Melbourne Food and Wine Festival pop-up where punters will be able to get involved in the winemaking process.
They’re running a Demystifying Winemaking workshop on Saturday March 23 and Saturday March 30, which aims to make the art of vinification approachable for beginners. For $78, attendees will get to stomp and press the grapes – and they’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of their labour when Noisy Ritual releases the finished product later this year.
If you’re not keen to get that hands-(or feet-)on, they’ll be serving up wine by the glass and bottle, as well as wine-tasting flights and bites from nearby Italian panini bar Saluministi.
Thu & Fri 12pm–10pm
