We enjoyed a great lunch, sadly the day was very wet and view obscured. Has a great gift shop attached to the cellar door.

Ate lunch at the cellar door with a 4 year old. Amazing views, friendly staff, good coffee and the pizzas had slightly exotic but tasty toppings. The 4 year old appreciated the fenced off play area below the balcony with a small play area which also kept her away from everyone else. The wine was OK.

Great place to sit and relax, and enjoy a bite to eat. Wines were average at best. Hard to be this close to the McLaren Vale and turn out alcoholic grape juice.

This has to be amongst the most scenic cellar door in the world. Wine and food are both decent. They wont disappoint. To pass the time you can purchase a can of golf balls and wack them from a tee at the cellar across a valley towards a distant flag (it would have amongst the hardest golf holes in the... More

We happened to have a bottle of their wine a dinner on KI and it was so good, we had to go there to check it out. What we found blew us away. Outstanding wines in one of the most beautiful places on the island all housed in a fairly new and well provisioned cafe and little market. We wished... More

I have read some of the other reviews for Dudley Cellar Door, and have to say that the staff which we met were incredibly friendly so perhaps they have solved this now. The view was spectacular, probably the best view from all of the Cellar Doors we visited. I think the lady who served us was called Kel. She was... More

Firstly let me say that the wine was lovely and the view stunning, the lack of air conditioning was unpleasant being a 40+ hot day but we were willing to overlook at, however the 'choose your own platter' was a disgrace. You are directed to select what you want on your platter from the fridge, which is ok for takeaway,... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our wine. It is very rare that it gets to 40+degrees on the Island without a pleasant sea breeze, therefore we have not yet found the need to install an air con in our Cellar Door. We developed the 'create your own platter' option due to the demand... More
