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...

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... More

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... More

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.

We had come to Moama for a 4 day stay and and had decided to visit The Old school Winery. Heading off from our motel we travelled on Perricoota rd towards Womboota which took us 25 minutes to get there. On arrival my wife and I made our way into the tasting room where we were greeted by a person... More

We dropped in 6 months ago and will definitely revisit when we’re in the area. The owner was informative, engaging, generous and honest. Not to mention charming and entertaining. He spent a couple of hours with us, talking about the process of producing mead, the varieties, the history and the culture of hid produce. We tasted everything he had, even... More

Recently visited old school winery and found it disappointing. After fairly long Journey to get there, required use of toilet facilities but was informed that it was out of order. Had to cut visit short for this reason, would have expected maybe a porta loo for customers might be an idea if they want people to stick around and purchase... More
