Mead Cellar Door Opens in Hunter Valley


Written by:

Honey Wines Australia – a Meadery specialising in crafting wines made from honey – announces the opening of its cellar door in the scenic region of Broke.

Nestled in the breathtaking Hunter Valley region, the grand opening of the Honey Wines Australia cellar door marks an exciting milestone for the small business and provides an opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the world of mead and honey.

For the past three years, Honey Wines Australia has operated as an online business, attracting wine enthusiasts and honey aficionados with its unique selection of meads. The founder – Martin Jackson, an experienced beekeeper – was motivated by a passion for the art of mead-making and a deep appreciation for the exquisite flavours that honey can impart. However, a setback occurred when the owner’s 65 beehives were euthanised in October due to the devastating Varroa mite.

Undeterred by this challenge, Honey Wines Australia has persevered and emerged stronger than ever. The opening of their cellar door provides a physical space where visitors can indulge in the enchanting world of mead. Situated in the heart of Broke, within the picturesque Hunter Valley, the small cellar door offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for guests to sample their 9 different flavours of mead and explore a diverse range of honey products – including creamed honey, vanilla honey and even chocolate honey.

Honey Wines Australia takes immense pride in their meticulously crafted meads, available in a variety of captivating flavours that showcase the inherent complexity and richness of honey. From traditional meads with their smooth, golden notes, to vibrant and innovative creations infused with fruits and spices, there is a mead to satisfy every palate.

The cellar door educates visitors on the fascinating process of mead-making through engaging tastings led by owner, Martin Jackson. “We are thrilled to invite the public to experience the world of Honey Wines Australia firsthand at our new shop,” said Martin. “Despite the recent challenges we faced, we are grateful for the support we have received over the years, and we look forward to showcasing the art of mead-making and offering a truly exceptional experience to all our visitors.”

The grand opening of Honey Wines Australia’s cellar door in Broke is a testament to the company’s dedication to creating exceptional meads and sharing their passion for honey with the world. Whether you are a wine enthusiast, a mead connoisseur, or simply curious to explore the wonders of honey-based beverages, the Honey Wines Australia cellar door promises an unforgettable journey for all.
