Taste the romance of the past
We've stepped into the world of social media - you can now find us on Facebook! Check out our page for all our latest news! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIQUOR LICENCE NO. 24008153 At our small, family-owned winery in the historic village of Womboota (just over the Victorian-NSW border, 31 km from Echuca-Moama), we produce distinctive, handcrafted grape wines, as well as our specialty, a range of delicious meads (honey wines). One of the world's oldest alcoholic drinks, mead has been popular across the world, from Africa to Northern Europe, for thousands of years. Mead is mentioned in the epic poetry and sagas of ancient Nordic and Celtic literature and mediaeval texts. In Beowulf, one of the oldest poems in the English language, mead stirs warriors' spirits before battle. Mead warms hearts too: in Viking times, mead was a traditional honeymoon drink. Tradition and innovation are combined in the subtle, complex flavours of our meads. As well as our classic sweet mead, 'The Bard's Reward', we produce a range of dry and medium-sweet varietal meads, made in a lighter, contemporary style, featuring renowned regional honey varieties such as Yellow Box, River Redgum, and Orange Blossom. These meads are delicious when served lightly chilled, as a table wine or with a cheese platter. You may also enjoy our handcrafted grape wines, made with traditional winemaking equipment, including a basket-press and oak barrels. Our grape wines include Barbera (a Northern Italian grape variety) and Bluey (a Cabernet-Shiraz blend with a hint of honey).Our wines and meads are available from our Cellar Door at Womboota (open daily, 9.30am-5pm), as well as online here at Farmhouse Direct!
