We booked a table for lunch when we arrived the Winery was very busy with wine tasting. We tried a few wines but the staff had limited enthusiasm for their role and the vibe was low energy. The menu was limited and we ended up with a duck pate & lavash and included a piece of local cheese and quince... More

Thank you for your honest review. On busy days it can be very hectic and we unfortunately can't spend the time we would like to talking about our wines. It always pays to book a table as you did on the day as many unfortunately don't. We will certainly take your comments on-board and hope you may visit us again... More

It appears the cellar door is going through a major refurb at the moment and parking was confusing and tricky - very nearly drove away as signage was non existent. Unfortunately the local football club were there for mad monday celebrations and our second introduction to the cellar door was a chap relieving himself in the garden - in full... More

Thank you for your honest review. Our apologies for your initial impression of our establishment. I believe the "footballers" were pulled into line after that day. There is signage in the car park however we will certainly look into improving it whilst we are building which can always be a trying time when you still want to keep trading. Hopefully... More

The weather wasn't favouring us, but the view was spectacular anyway, and a cosy fire burns inside. You can eat inside or on a covered verandah (but no dogs on verandah- confined to lower garden setting only). Wine tasting followed by a delicious pizza, or whatever your choice, is the order of the day. Also fine woollen garments and accessories... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you found a place to wait out the weather. Nothing better than a warm fire, glass of red and rain out side.

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
