Moree’s first cellar door!
Woolaway Wines was founded in 2001 in the Hunter Valley by two school mates who were looking for a new business venture. They leased a rundown vineyard on the Milbrodale Road at Broke. The property was sold in 2004 and they were asked to vacate the premises.
In 2005 the decision was made to set up in Moree, due to its high volume of tourist traffic between Melbourne and Brisbane. The aim was to produce premium quality wines from grapes produced in the New England/North West region of New South Wales, while experimenting with grape varieties in Moree to determine their sustainability for the prevailing climate and soil types of the area. In doing so, they became Moree’s first cellar door.
