Overview

"Laurance of Margaret River, your one stop Margaret River wine experience. Home of the famous "CHICK ON A STICK." Dianne Laurance had a vision to create a Cellar with a difference. Laurance, with its rustic charm and European sophistication, offers visitors unique tastings in magnificent surroundings. The building has been constructed of prefabricated concrete and its unique finish gives the perception of age. Ironbark timbers sourced from the old Wooloomooloo Wharf in Sydney feature throughout the building. The Cellar is adorned with beautiful artworks and sculptures from around Australia. The grounds boast a 1,000 bush rose garden and two spectacular sculptures. The building has a large open fire, is air conditioned and is family friendly with a fabulous playground for the children. Tastings are offered by way of two choices of trays at a minimal cost. Patrons are encouraged to sit at a table with their trays and relax and enjoy the ambience of the magnificent surroundings and background music. Laurance produces the premium range "Laurance of Margaret River" which consists of 10 national and international award winning wines. The property itself has also been awarded numerous accolades. Casual, family friendly, affordable meals that focus on local produce is available daily. Tour groups are welcome and parking and turning circles have been provided for buses.

Not one of my favourites. Wine was average, a bit sterile inside, didn't have that homely and friendly feel to it.

We go here every time we come to Margaret river and it never disappoints. The wine tasting is always excellent and the food is also good. Take a stroll through the lavish gardens which also don't disappoint.
