Margaret River region winemakers Flor Marché welcomed a crowd of friends, family and supporters at the launch of their new cellar door.
Last Saturday more than 100 guests donned fresh flower crowns and sipped wines from the label as the venue – located within the Willyabrup Dreaming pottery gallery – opened its doors.
Harpist Catherine Ashley performed for the spirited crowd while food was provided by Claudio Tallarico (Claudio Biscotti) and Olivia Norton (Art of Grazing).
“Willyabrup Dreaming was established in the 90s, Bill Meiklejohn has been crafting pottery for more than 20 years and has an exciting range of ocean inspired pieces,” explained owner and winemaker Elizabeth Reed.
”This partnership is a really exciting development in the business,” she said.
“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with Willyabrup Dreaming and Bill to sell my wines alongside his exquisite pottery.
“There is a long history of art and wine in this region and we have created an experience opportunity which combines both of these artisan crafts”.
Established in 2010, Flor Marché’s range of wines focus on single varietals and includes traditional and alternative varieties including Grenache, Trebbiano and Malbec.
The Flor Marché cellar door will be open Thursday to Sunday 10-4pm or by appointment and is located at 49 Willyabrup Road, Willyabrup.
