At The Old School Winery and Meadery, you’ll taste the romance of the past. Their family business produces handcrafted grape wines and honey meads. Mead (honey wine) has a rich history, reaching beyond medieval times to the Vikings and ancient Celts.
Their meads combine tradition with innovation, as they use time-honoured wine making techniques to create subtle, complex meads that reflect the flavours of the Riverina region's renowned honeys.
They also have two studios on site, where the artists in their family create a range of artworks and pottery (including stoneware wine and mead cups, influenced by ancient drinking vessels). Their pottery is available from the cellar door.
They're located in Womboota, a tiny historic village set in the wide plains country of the south-west Riverina, just 31 kilometres from Moama and the Murray River.
Their cellar door is open daily (except Mondays) from 10am-5pm. Tea and plunger coffee is available, or you’re welcome to being a picnic to enjoy in the cellar-door garden. They’re a pet-friendly venue too! Their quaint, rustic garden is also a great location for wedding photos – please contact them to discuss bookings and fees.
