I had to take my parents to one of my favourite wineries near Margaret River.It's called Laurence wines!
Located about 34km from Margaret River, at 3518 Caves Road, Laurence wines occupies an area of 100ha.
At the entrance to the estate there's a lake with a 14 mt high blue pole atop which is a 3 Metre high gold lady. "Free as a bird" represents freedom and opportunities that Australia gives us all. A bit kitsch maybe, but impressive!

Another work of art nearby is of a tree with a single red apple.

The great late wildlife expert Steve Irwin is also commemorated with this bronze bird bath with cockatoos.
Indoors, the walls are covered with works of art from various Australian artists, including Aboriginal artworks.
Being Christmas time there was a Christmas tree made with their beautiful bottles of wines. Above the tree you can see their wine glass chandelier, which I find "a must"!

Does anyone need to go to the toilet No? Oh well let's just go so we can take some pictures!!
Again, the toilets are amazing, full of works of art, beautiful mirrors, lotions and potions and very clean!

We bought some wine, but I can't say if it's better or worse than others as I'm not much of a wine drinker, but I have to say I loved their bottles, the clear ones look good as water bottles!
