Mother's Day: Meet the Women of Wine

Where would we be without our mums? 

Meet the women of wine at Flying Fish Cove. Spanning across multiple generations, we chat about Mother’s Day traditions, family and their favourite celebratory drinks. 

Lyn Eastaugh

Lyn has been involved with Flying Fish Cove and Wildberry Vineyard since its inception.

Throughout the year you’ll find Lyn tending to the vines at Wildberry with her son Damon.

Each vintage she helps hand-pick the grapes with her daughter Jonica and bakes the best fruit cake for the winemaking crew. Our chief winemaker Simon is still haggling her for the recipe!

How many children do you have?
I have two children and five grandchildren. My grandson Louis is currently doing a vintage at the winery and has done two others before that.

Best part of Mother's Day?
I don’t like the way it has been commercialised but I do enjoy the opportunity to be with family.

Any family traditions you celebrate on Mother's Day?
I like to keep it simple and we will catch up for a lunch or dinner with as many of the family that are down. 

What is the best present that you have received for Mother’s Day? 
The best present is visits from my children or grandchildren and their spouse or friends.

What wines would your children be?
Chardonnay because it’s special.

What’s your favourite wine to share on Mother’s Day?
Wildberry Reserve Chardonnay.

Jonica Eastaugh

Jonica is close to her mother Lyn, spending time between Perth and Lyn’s home in Dunsborough.

As we reach the tail end of harvest, you’ll find Jonica and Lyn picking end rows at Wilberry Vineyard. They just love being out there! 

How many children do you have?
I have 2 daughters.

What’s the best part of Mother’s Day?
Celebrating life together.

Do you have any family traditions that you celebrate on Mother’s Day?
We don’t have traditions. Our plans are open, flexible and usually decided at the last minute; either a swim at Yallingup or a picnic at the dam at Flying Fish.

What is the best present that you have received for Mother’s day? 
Handmade cards, poems and flowers.

What wines would your children be?
If my daughters were wine they would definitely be the Flying Fish sparkling. They are vibrant, interesting and creative and have both added so much love and light to life.

I'm also one of Louis’ godmothers. Louis would definitely be a new beer that they are trialling. He is innovative and creative like his father (Damon) and grandfather (Geoff). 

What’s your favourite wine to share on Mother’s day?
Will be celebrating with the new vintage of the Flying Fish sparkling.

Mother's Day - Kerry and Abbey Bennett - Flying Fish Cove Winery Margaret River

Kerry Bennett 

Kerry has been part of the Flying Fish Cove family for over 10 years and wears many hats in the organisation.

Her daughter Abbey used to work in the lab and helps out in the winery on uni breaks. You'll also find Kerry's fur-babies Daisy and Poppy at the Fish. They’re the first to greet you with a warm welcome and a pat at the winery.

How many children do you have?
3 all over 21 now and living away from home.

What’s the best part of Mother’s Day?
Giving thanks to my mum for all her love and support and getting appreciation from my kids.

Do you have any family traditions that you celebrate on Mother’s Day?
Breakfast in bed with Champagne!

What is the best present that you have received for Mother’s Day? 
We don’t do presents for Mothers Day. The best gift is love and cuddles!

If your children were wine what would they be?
I have 2 sparklings full of bubbles – that like to shock me like the popping of a champagne cork, and one that is a thinker more of a deeper layered cabernet sauvignon.

What’s your favourite wine to share on Mother’s day?
Flying Fish Cove's sparkling pinot chardonnay or a fresh Great Southern riesling served with a Barbequed Thai spiced snapper!
