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.

We don't know how we missed Ringer Reef before. Thankfully it was recommended to us this time. The wine tasting, the lunch platter, the service were excellent and the price so very reasonable. We will be back!

Stopped by after the Wandiligong nut festival and tried the reds, including the non standard offering and walked out with 2 bottles. Great photo opportunity of the valley.

This was a lovely cellar door to visit as we had the chance to taste some not so common varieties of wine. The lady who served us was very knowledgeable and the surrounds were lovely too.
