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

We arrived at Dudley Cellar Door on a cold, windy morning when we were too early for the Cape Willoughby Lighthouse tour (they start at 11:30)...so backtracked a bit to find somewhere warm and cosy. Couldn't have chosen better! We weren't interested in tasting wine at that time of morning but they have coffee and cake, not to mention a... More

We came across this stunning Cellar Door on our recent short stay on KI. Really unique in that you can select your do it yourself platter form the frig, match it with one of their outstanding wines, we chose a Rose, and there you have lunch. Anything you don't finish you take with you. Really good idea, incidentally we ate... More

Don't be put off by the dirt road and long driveway in to Dudley Winery. Once you arrive the warm welcome and fabulous view makes it worthwhile. Our time was limited but we had a most enjoyable wine tasting and great coffee. The items for sale were high quality and service was efficient. We would have loved to stay to... More

Beautiful cellar door, amazing views, love the decking overlooking this spectacular countryside.. Service was quite unfriendly and didn't feel very welcome.. Were the only customers in the place and felt like a nuisance! Food was very average and disappointing considering the high prices.. Fabulous surroundings and beautiful building..
