Melbourne’s First Permanent Urban Winery is Opening
Noisy Ritual’s name stems from the idea that some cultures historically used “noisy rituals” to aid wine fermentation. When Cam Nicol, Alex Byrne and Sam Vogel open its doors on June 18, Melbourne’s first permanent urban winery will offer these raucous rituals in the form of workshops, a cellar door, exhibitions and pop-ups. The team began making wine when they found a fermenter under Nicols’ house in 2014. In 2015 Noisy Ritual was born as a pop-up, group-winemaking experience in Preston.
