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.
From Saturday 26th September 2020, our cellar door and pottery will be open again at weekends from 10am-5pm for mead/wine tastings and sales (no appointment needed at weekends). For the immediate future anyway, we’ll be open by appointment only on weekdays, for tastings and call and collect orders. Please call us on (03) 54893249 to inquire about booking a visit for wine and mead tasting, or use our “Contactless Call and Collect” option for prepaid orders of wine, mead, and takeaway tea or plunger coffee. And 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!
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 situation, our hours and entry conditions may change from time to time. We’ll update this site and Facebook accordingly.
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).
