Nicole Reschke Larder Homewares Penola Coonawarra Koonara Winery

Nicole created LARDER in 2012. Originally from Melbourne, she moved to the Coonawarra wine region in country South Australia, to start a new life with her husband and Koonara Wines Vigneron Dru Reschke. They live on their property named ‘Koonara’, which is surrounded by their vineyards, with their two young daughters Lucy and Alice.

Nicole leads an active life, dividing her time between the running of their Cellar Door come LARDER showroom ‘Koonara’, and working on growing the wholesale of LARDER and Lucy & Alice Jewellery.  

“I’m inspired everyday living in beautiful Coonawarra and holidaying by the sea at Robe. As a busy mother with two growing businesses, I wanted to create a homewares range that combined practical and durable design with timeless elegance,” said Nicole.

The jewellery range began in 2014 and was named after Nicole and Dru’s two inspirational little girls ‘Lucy and Alice’. A fun, colourful, modern and affordable range, for all situations, it is constantly evolving.

LARDER is a family business with a small and passionate team.

LARDER and Lucy & Alice Jewellery is supported by Karen O’Brien our South Australian agent. If you would like to stock our range we would love to hear from you.
