About
Ringer Reef is a small winery, vineyard and cellar door located in the Alpine Valleys region of Victoria. The property fronts the Great Alpine Road at the base of Mount Buffalo at Porepunkah, just 6kms from Bright in North East Victoria. A range of white, red and sparkling wines are hand made and bottled on site, from hand picked grapes grown on either our own or neighboring vineyards in Porepunkah. The owners Annie and Bruce Holm, a husband and wife team that are passionate about their wine and the area they live, are joined by their son Mark and his wife Julie to create Ringer Reef wines.

    Delicious wines and fabulous views
    We booked ahead and are really glad we did. We enjoyed a lovely platter and wine taster. It was a gorgeous day and the view from the outside deck area was magnificent. Pet friendly too. Highly recommend

    Family friendly winery
    Fantastic afternoon spent on the beautiful lawns, listening to the live music provided by Ringer Reef themselves (local talent too!) whilst drinking their delicious sparkling rose. Weather was perfect for an afternoon in the shade of the trees while adults enjoyed the wine on offer and the kids ran and danced to the music. A must to attend. Oh and the view needs to be seen as cannot be described!

    Worth a visit
    Can get busy, so book ahead. Great wine tasting, but a little expensive. Picnic'ed under the trees. Was supposed to be live music, but he never actually played?? Nice spot, friendly owners

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic venue for a family picnic. Views are brilliant (and so are the lawns!). Food hamper was tasty and generously portioned. Wines were delicious.

We enjoyed spending time at Ringer Reef Winery and having a fine lunch with good wine and friends. It was the prefect way to relax and let the world go by. The view from the cellar door and al fresco dining area is pleasant with the backdrop of the mountains. The friendly staff were helpful.

We started our Ringer Reef experience with a tasting of their wines indoors then moved onto the terrace for lunch. We chose the Grazing Platter which was amazing; so many lovely local ingredients blended with perfection onto one large platter. Ideal for two people and excellent value at $35. Not to be missed.

We popped in on Friday lunchtime and had an amazing wine flight of whites and roses - and an amazing tasting plate full of so much variety.
Fabulous young lady served us and great views, flavours and value

Thanks for your lovely review Ohhappidays. We're so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Ringer Reef. The wine flight is a new addition to the menu for us, and is proving to be quite popular. It's a pleasant accompaniment to a leisurely afternoon enjoying the views of Mt Buffalo!

We didn’t have a booking and we had our puppy dog with us. We were welcomed by Nicole as soon as we got to the front door and chose our own table for two on the landing, in the corner and watched the afternoon Summer storm roll in. We had the grazing board & a tasting each. A beautiful and relaxing afternoon. And what a view!

One of our favourite places to visit when in Bright/Poerpunkah. Friendly service, wonderful wines and the grazing platters are amazing. Views across the valley to Buffallo are the icing on the cake!

Thanks Lee. Totally agree that the view of Buffalo is the icing on the cake. We're pretty lucky, aren't we!
