Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Must visit if you’re in the area. Genuine friendly welcoming people. Tasted wine and showed us where the pots are made. Nice country lifestyle and beautiful garden. Some unique wines are here. You speak to them and you will learn a lot about local area.
We had a great time. Please visit this place and support them if you’re in the area

This is little more than a cellar door winery. The buildings are quite interesting but there is little to see inside other than a pottery display, all of which is for sale.
A tasting costs A$10 and includes 3 varieties plus biscuits and cheese.
It would have been interesting to see how they are made.

Great winery to visit and learn about Mead. Owners very informative. Loved it so we purchased a couple of bottles. Well worth the trip out to School Road Womboota for this little hidden Gem

Very rustic boutique venue half an hours drive from Moama at Womboota. Sampled the full range from the sweeter mead wines through to the dryer varieties. Cracker biscuits and cheese provided to accompany the tastings. Friendly informative host to guide you through the tasting styles and recommended food accompaniments.
Wide range of wines to choice from at assorted prices. Picnic facilities available.Venue has online purchasing website . Artisan pottery studio onsite with range of unique pottery to view and purchase.

The Old School Winery and Meadery is quite a unique experience. The buildings are rustic and in a picturesque setting. Our tasting host was Freya who provided a very friendly and informative tasting experience. I enjoyed the semi-sweet meads but found the stronger varieties too sweet. We quite enjoyed the mulled spiced mead. We also tasted their more conventional reds and 1 white wine. These also had their own unique tastes although I did not find them particularly appealing. The pottery is part of the Cellar Door and you can observe the potter at work while viewing the finished products.

Dropped on whilst driving the backroads trail. Unfortunately. we missed the signed turnoff at first.

Nice and cool inside on an oppressively hot day.

Teenagers were a little bored whilst mum and dad sampled the meads. At least one of our kids could be the designated driver.

Very interesting to learn about meads from the maker.

If you have not tried a mead before, this is your chance.

Some nice pottery for sale too.

Visited this botique Winery, Meadery and Pottery Studio today. What a gem!! It's about 100 metres from the intersection of Perricoota Road and School Road (turn into school road and it's about 100metres on the right) don't rely on your GPS!! Very very welcoming hosts where you get to meet and chat with the actual wine maker. Have a nice small range of wines and meads. All are very well priced and your guaranteed to find a couple that tantalises your taste buds. Property was originally an old school which has been converted to a rustic winery and pottery studio where all are made on site. Pottery studio is also excellent as is the wine!! Property also has beautiful garden area to enjoy a Tea, coffee or picnic lunch. If you phone them you must use the 03 area code even though it's in NSW - 03 5489 3249. Definitely well worth a visit!

We went on backroads trail and discovered this little beauty. This place combines pottery with vineyard and meadery. Pottery is full of cute little glasses, while winery has Italian style wine. As to meads, this is very unique experience and the meads come out with unique taste. We ended up buying 4 bottles because it's hard to choose between different styles!
Kids enjoyed playing in the garden, where sculptures are hidden in the bush.
A whole outdoor setting is beautiful

We call in for a warm welcome when holidaying at Moama. The wine is amazing! Warm in the shed on a cold day with the fire going. Pottery also for sale.

Really interesting to learn about and try a variety of meads. Quaint in an old school building and friendly service. Would recommend that you make a quick visit as part of the back roads trail.
