“Very interesting morning”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

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 (who if he had been wearing a red suit) would have passed for Santa Claus. He made us welcome and started to explain to us about his meade from his dry up to his sweet. While we were tasting on a small burner there was a meade brewing which had herbs and spices added.The tasting of this was very warming and would be a good brew for the winter. After spending a good hour and plenty of talking and tasting we bought a couple of bottles and made our way to have a look at the old Womboota village.

“Charming and interesting”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

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 though we could only afford a few bottle s. It was an extremely interesting and rewarding experience. We’ll be back for sure. If you're within 50 kms of this charming little place, don't miss out on a unique and rewarding opportunity.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

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 wine.
