We stopped here on a recommendation of a friend and the views alone make the place special. Sitting up on the hill looking out over the water with a sandy cove below certainly makes you envious of the owners who endure this hardship permanently. We didn’t eat here but spent a lovely hour tasting and chatting with the gentleman behind... More

The cellar door is set on the top of the hill overlooking the coastline of Kangaroo Island. We were not there at sunset but the sunsets would be magnificent. The wines were great the best the sparkling red. The owner was friendly and charming.

A great welcome, including sparkling shiraz, a delicious lunch platter and tastings, and a stunning view. Our farewell meal on Kangaroo Island, topped off a fabulous break away. We were made so welcome, tastings were served to a table on a tray with descriptions of the wines, and a tasty lunch platter. The proprietor was so friendly, and the view... More

Sunset winery is a wine cellar, where you can taste some wines (included sparkly wine, so good!) and enjoy the beautiful views of the island coast (we can do it, but I recommend you that if you can, go there in sunset time). It is a perfect place, where you can relax, drink a very good wine, see a very... More

Although a limited selection of wine, the wine was lovely. The service was also great and it was lovely to sit and look out over the beautiful landscape. Highly recommend a visit.
