"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.

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.

With a large group of 20 people tasting I can understand why a winery might be a bit apprehensive about accepting a booking but this was a group of experienced wine drinkers and enthusiastic novices who were prepared to listen and learn. We arrived at the booked time but the staff were unprepared and somewhat dismissive. When we eventually received... More

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.

One red apple on a black tree, a gold statue of a diver on a plinth mounted in the middle of its dam, the moment we drove through the entrance, we knew we came to a place a bit unusual.

I've travelled to the Margaret River region for several years now and always make an effort to visit this winery. Never again. I took my parents for the first time.

From the beautiful scenic gardens to the wonderful decor & the exquisite food & wine, could not fault this restaurant. The young lady that served us could not have been more helpful (something not often seen these days). Would not hesitate in recommending Laurances to anyone. Will certainly return.
