"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.

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.

What a lovely venue for lunch. The view is spectacular, the wine devine and the food excellent. Just a shame that the service was so average. Don't get me wrong - nothing was bad just a lack of friendliness and enthusiasm that we have had a many places here.

Easily the prettiest winery we have visited. The roses indicate the quality of grapes pruced for the season but also provide good spots for pictures. Taste the Gin Gin Chardonnay to sample the taste of the excellent season this year!

Returning here after a few years break. We sat outside in the sun, next to the Steve Irwin memorial. A lovely tapas style lunch, small plates which we added to as the time floated by.

I love this place! Originally just turned in because of the gold diver in the lake, but everything here is just amazing. You have to pay here to sample the wines, but it's worth it!
