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.

We had the best time at this place! We left the kids at the rental house a few mins away and drove up the winding drive to an absolutely gorgeous view. The winery is homely but tastefully decked out. The wines are all good - but the standout is the sparkling red. We could resist a platter full of local... More

The lady was so welcoming and the wines were good, especially the sparkling shiraz. Everything is very reasonably priced, the food is great and the views are just incredible. There's a reason they call it Sunset Winery, but if you can't get there then, the views are amazing all day.

Perched on hill with fabulous views, this winery is aptly named, and easy to get to. Staff friendly and wines explained during tastings. Prices very reasonable and the Sparkling Shiraz is definitely one to include in your tasting and purchase. Have been there twice and I'm sure we'll be back again.
