The Old School Winery & Meadery
We’re not just another winery (although we do make small batches of handcrafted red grape wines). We’re also a meadery! Mead is honey wine – possibly the world’s oldest fermented drink – and it’s very special.
Meadmaking is an ancient craft, now being revived worldwide, and our little family-run meadery in Womboota, in NSW’s far southwest Riverina region, is one of the pioneers of modern meadmaking in Australia. For over twenty years, through two generations, our family has been on a meadmaking adventure, always full of new challenges and rewards – and we love sharing the results with our customers.
Our cellar door and pottery are open from 10am to 5pm, 6 days/week from Tuesday to Sunday (closed Mondays) . Of course, if travel restrictions mean you can’t make it to Womboota at the moment, you’re also welcome to purchase our meads and wines by mail order!
UPDATE # 1 (applicable 31/12/20 until further notice) Please note: We require facemasks to be worn while indoors in our winery building. Masks are available at the cellar door if you forget to bring one. We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday!
Fabulous people, mead and pottery. The highlight of our trip to the Murray. What a wonderful find. Alison Williams
Maybe you’re already a dedicated mead enthusiast, or maybe you’ve always wanted to try the favourite drink of heroes, kings and queens, Norse gods, Vikings, monks – and wizards!
Whoever you are, we hope you’ll taste the romance of the past when you sip one of our meads. And we think you’ll be tantalised and delighted by just how subtle and enchanting mead can be in the modern world, when it’s brimming with the flavours of Australian bush honeys.
Plan a visit…Pack a picnic; invite a few friends. Pets are welcome too!
You’ll find our cellar door in the tiny historic village of Womboota, NSW, Australia (just 31km from the Murray River towns of Echuca and Moama).
