Came along specifically for lunch on our final leg of our trip. Weren't disappointed. Weather was absolutely stunning, no wind, perfect temperature. We had the duck pate and trio of dips with some Dudley merlot. Fantastic.

Dudley Cellar door is stunningly located and the view is to die for. We visited on a cold windy day and the views were still amazing. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

This would have to be the best outlook of any cellar door in Australia. It wa a windy day we were there ( waiting for the next ferry as ours was cancelled - a good thing as it turned out) so the outdoor deck was not the place to be but the outlook is spectacular, the wines good ( we... More

Thanks Richard. Yes, as much as the view is stunning from our deck in the sunshine, it can be equally as breathtaking watching the wild weather roll by through the window from the comfort of the Dudley couch, by the fire! FYI our 'warm woollies' are now made using Kangaroo Island Sheep's Wool. More

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
