Beside the cellar door, you’ll also find a working pottery studio, where we make handcrafted stoneware pottery: beautiful pieces to enhance your enjoyment of mead, and wine, from wine cups to dip bowls and mediaeval mead beakers! They make great gifts too.

More to Enjoy…
If you like history, you’ll sense the romance of the past in Womboota. Our cellar door is located in the grounds of the former Womboota School, among the graceful old peppercorn trees that were typical of little Australian country schools of yesteryear. It’s also worth taking a few minutes to explore the quiet streets of historic Womboota Village. Established originally as a stockmen’s camp for the big pastoral property, Perricoota Station, Womboota was settled in the 1870s and soon had a population of over 80, with two churches, a hall, general store, bakery, blacksmith and village common. Now home to only a dozen or so families, Womboota still retains several of its heritage buildings and even a traditional village common (grazing land) for residents’ livestock… And for the kids, there’s a small public playground at the Womboota Hall (School of Arts).
If you have a little more time, why not follow the Backroads Trail regional touring route? It takes you off the beaten track, and back through history. You’ll travel from the redgum forests along the region’s rivers to the wide plains of the Riverina cropping and pastoral country between Moama, Mathoura, Barham and Deniliquin. There’s heritage sites, free camping sites, great birdwatching and photography opportunities, and even several artisan/farm food/wine producers (but please phone ahead). Note – the touring route and map were planned and checked by locals…always a plus!
