WHAT'S HAPPENINGIn Autumn each year we transport fresh grapes from a network of growers throughout Victoria and turn them into delicious wine right here in Brunswick East. It's a messy, fun, rowdy time when we throw our doors wide open to let as many people as possible enjoy the experience of making and drinking wine in the city. Vintage is the short time of year when we're in full production mode - mountains of grapes are stomped, fermented and pressed - and you'll have the chance to get right amongst the action. There are heaps of ways to get involved - winemaking workshops and tours, a kitchen takeover and series of food events, free and ticketed live music gigs and more. Noisy Ritual was built on a philosophy of celebration - we think making and drinking wine should be relaxed, loud, inclusive and fun. Come celebrate Vintage 2020 and all the good things that come with it. WINEMAKING Vintage Winemaking Workshop We take you through the various steps of the winemaking process in a couple of fun hours. Stomp some grapes and press a batch of wine whilst learning about fermentation and maturation. We'll also taste samples of juice and wine at various stages in the process directly from fermentation bins, tanks and barrels. When the work and wisdom-imparting is complete, toast to a job well done with a grazing platter, tasting flight and a bottle of wine to take home. 6.30pm-8.30pm Wed 4 March SOLD OUT 6.30pm-8.30pm Wed 25 March Vintage Winemaking Tour Vintage lasts for 6 weeks and it's the only time of year when you can witness the most action-packed part of the winemaking process! Come along to one of our guided tours where we'll walk you through the winemaking process and show you how the wine you're drinking 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! Ticket includes a drink on arrival. Tour runs 1hr from 6.30pm. 2020 Winemaker Membership Through a series of workshops you'll participate in the whole winemaking process from grape to glass. It's all about learning through doing - getting your hands (and feet) dirty in the name of making good-quality wine. SOCIAL FOOD PROJECT KITCHEN TAKEOVER We're beyond excited to be teaming up with the folks from the Social Food Project who'll be running the kitchen throughout vintage this year. If you haven't heard, they're a social enterprise run by a talented group of chefs, out to make the world a more sustainable and connected place, one amazing meal at a time. They specialise in delicious wine-friendly food built for sharing - we can't bloody wait. Wed, Thurs & Fri 6pm-9.30pm 26 Feb - 3 Apr OPENING NIGHT FEAST WITH MIZNON A Miznon dinner is equal parts community feast and performance art - truly a feast for ALL the senses. Accompanied by a bunch of our noisiest of wines and the annual Ritual Stomp to mark the official start of Vintage 2020 - this year we're kicking things off with a joyously loud bang!
