MELBOURNE | Noisy Ritual Brunswick East is the answer to a problem Melbourne never knew it had. The problem? We have a multitude of fantastic wineries all just a relatively short drive from Melbourne, but there’s never been an inner city winery. Located on Lygon Street in a part of town which seems to be changing on a weekly basis, Noisy Ritual is Australia’s second inner city winery (Sydney’s Urban Winery is the other). Owners Cam Nicol, Alex Byrne and Sam Vogel had been making wines for several years and were always put off by the perceived pretentiousness and lack of accessibility of wine.

I think we are part of a broad movement of a younger generation of winemakers to change things and make the wine industry more inclusive.

With Noisy Ritual, they are aiming to change all of that and if our 2 visits to the winery are anything to go buy, they’re already succeeding. The former warehouse space still looks and in many ways operates as a warehouse. Barrels of wine line the side and back of the venue, while communal tables grace the centre along with a makeshift bar to the right. It’s a fun, friendly space with great tunes – very conducive to a night out with a group of friends. The owners are happy to chat about the wine too and will happily explain what the wines and winery are all about. Along with the fantastic wines, which cover a variety of styles using grapes from a diverse selection of Victoria’s wine regions, there’s a small selection of local craft beer bottles on offer. Fitting with the ethos of Noisy Ritual, the owners didn’t want non-wine drinkers who came in with their wine drinking friends to be left out.

If it’s food you’re after, you can grab cheese and charcuterie from the venue itself, or bring in/order takeaway from outside.

For those who really want to get involved, a $350 membership gives access six bottles of the current vintage wine, three barrel-tasting sessions, and 20% off all bottles for a year. On top of that, members get to have first hand involvement in the wine making process by stomping, pressing and bottling that year’s wines.

The bar is currently open on Fridays & Saturdays from 4:00pm to 11:00pm, with potential for longer hours/further days as time goes by and the owners get a feel for the place and what’s working and what’s not. The space is also available for events, pop-ups, workshops, performances, launches & exhibitions.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
