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.

Beautiful location, clean, modern, artwork, childrens play area, beautiful rose gardens of many colours in bloom. All outdoor areas immaculately kept, lawns, vineyard, lake and gardens. Great food, reasonably priced, good choice of lunch options, staff had impeccable manners and were very knowledgeable. Could not fault anything. What an absolute gem this is in Margaret River.

We were looking forward to taking friends fir lunch at Laurence as it is one of our favourites. However this visit was not a great sucess. The staff were hugely overworked on a sunny Saturday and it took a long long time fir us to even be seated. We preferred to be outside in the lovely grounds but although there... More

A staff members of staff very abruptly and aggressively asked us to leave the premises as we... More

Pretty winery and great service. I think we made the wrong choice on the menu with the sharing platter. Folks around us were having individual dishes, and they seemed to have gone in the right direction. Our tasting platter just seemed a little pre-made and was disappointing in taste and presentation. Besides the dukkah, there wasn't a dish on the... More

Had a friend's tip to lunch here and they weren't wrong. Gorgeous setting overlooking the vines, gardens and lake. Tuscan feel to the building with nice indoors and outdoor patio. Small playground for young kids. We did a quick wine tasting at the bar before choosing what wine to have with lunch. Not a lot of choice on the food... More

Some nice gifts to buy. Staff were very busy and did not share much knowledge of the wines. I only enjoyed the merlot, the rest were not pleasant to taste

Another winery stop during our spring southwest WA holiday. This vineyard has a stunning setting. The lunch menu has very limited choices and the two waiting staff were kept very busy. We ordered what was available at the counter, duck confit and lamb hotpot with chocolate mousse for dessert. The food was good and the complimentary teas very welcome.

Drove past the winery and decided to have lunch at the Laurance. It's casual dining like burgers, chips, lamp etc .. quite an average type experience. However, the view is stunning. In my opinion one of the prettiest winery in WA. The garden is impressive and the lake with the middle fountain is a photo moment that cannot be missed.... More

Stopped for a wine tasting and decided to have lunch. You must try their two platters more than enough for 4 people. Washed down with a wine. Check out the art , wine glass chandeliers and the toilets while you are there.
