Laurance is a nice winery in Western Australia which I visited a while ago. It is a really unique and cozy place. It was funny how our guide insisted we all visited bathroom.. He was right! It’s a real gallery.. and then a bathroom:) Each cabin has a painting .. and combination of the paintings, muted earth colours and wooden mirror frames add that museum feel (I know it feels a bit weird to use the rooms as they are ment to).

Art is not locked in these rooms only. It’s everywhere: the hall and the main restaurant area. I definitely liked to see all those works of talented people who the owner supported by featuring their works in the winery.

The owner is a very energetic and inspirational woman – Dianne. (I just could not skip this one) First of all she just beams with that positive energy, so you inevitably fall under her charmth. Second of all this women is a big supporter of women in general and those, who have less chances to success, in third world in particular. She inspires with her deeds and her success. So, I would definitely recommend to visit the place and, if you have a chance, to speak to her.

By the way Dianne and her husband were very successful enterprenuers before they decided to try wine making. Originally this idea was more like a hobby – to create a wine for own family. Well, did I tell you that she is very energetic? Currently the winery has considerable land (sorry don’t have exact data) under grapes, a restaurant, a garden of 1000 bushes and a lake connected with the restaurant with nice aisle covered in rose petals. It’s not only produces delicious wines, but is also a very pleasant and nice place to stay for lunch or dinner. Needless to say this picturesque place now is very popular for weddings.
