We stopped here by chance on a very cold, very windy winters day. The staff were very knowledgeable, efficient and amiable. The wine was good, lunch options great and the view was stunning. There were a variety of patrons, from a group of young women to a large family gathering. All were welcomed and appeared very comfortable. A superb way... More

Like many travellers we visited Dudley Cellar Door whilst waiting for our ferry journey home. We had the meatball pizza for lunch which was a bit pricey at $60 for 2 pizzas to feed our family of four however I was more than happy to pay the price as it was the best pizza we had ever eaten, in one...

Dudley staff were very understanding that time was short, and they accommodated 3 of us for a pretty good tasting, and duck pate to help. Very nice wines, maybe not the best I have tasted, yet the views back over the "back door" strait towards Cape Jervis made the 12 kms drive not only fun, it was well worth it.... More

Thank you for your positive review. Many customers do exactly as you have done, visit before catching the ferry. As you can see though we are a place that begs lingering longer! Maybe next time we can entice you to stay for a glass and bite to eat. Glad you enjoyed your experience, hope to see you again. Cheers! More

We spent a couple of days in KI.. It was low season so was a bit disappointed that most restaurants and cafes were not open. We meandered into Dudley Cellar Doors which is about 10 minutes drive from Penneshaw and was really glad we did! Had the best pizzas there, great coffee and choc fudge cakes to die for! The... More

One thing we pride ourselves on is always being open every day all year (except Good Friday and Christmas day of course) and consistent service. Besides, what could be better than a glass of red, a warm fire and gourmet pizza during the cooler months? Thank you for your review, hope to see you again sometime. Cheers! PS: our binoculars...

Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your visit. A common problem is visitors "discovering" us on their last day here but I am glad you made it and enjoyed yourself. Good way to finish your trip then! Will pass the message on to Stacy. Cheers! More

As you likely know, KI is a little sparse on options to eat out compared to Adelaide! Dudley cellar was stunning from the driveway with rollig hills, furry cows and an unprecedented sea view. Theybwere generous with their tastings and time and their chocolate cake was moreish! Food was expensive as all is on KI but it's definitely a must... More

Hi Davina....the vineyard is on our main property 15km south of the cellar door. Whilst it is great to have your cellar door in amongst the vines, our winery/vineyard on our main property does not have "that view" which is what really makes the experience here so very special. Thank you for your lovely review and for spreading the word... More

We started out sceptical about this winery solely because if was advertised on the ferry. I am glad we decided to throw caution to the wind however as we were rewarded with good wine, pretty views and Ray. Ray was knowledgeable and friendly and knew his stuff. Food looked good but we didn't try anything due to lack of time.

Well thought out cellar door with wide range of wines across varieties and styles. Great local food to go with wine in a heritage style setting with a artful view.
