Its worth the travelling to get there. The last 3 kilometres is on unsealed roads but no trouble at all. We arrived at mid afternoon and after a quick tasting settled into a bottle of wine and a plate of dips. With the brilliant views it was a great relaxing time. Staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating.

The problem with settling in with a bottle of wine and a nibble is trying to leave! Best place for an arvo session. Thank you for your lovely review. Cheers! More

They say it is about the journey, not just the destination. The drive out here is beautiful and when you pull up you don't realise the lovely view waiting for you when you get out onto our deck. Thanks for your comments. Cheers! More

First stop when we got to KI. View outstanding. Service awesome - Em was funny and great to chat too - wine was beautiful & so was the pizza. We all had a bit of fun whacking some golf balls into the abyss. Could have sat there all day!

We recently visited Dudleys winery. They had construction work going on so there was a LOT of noise while having lunch. The view is absolutely incredible. Location beautiful and food lovely. Unfortunately the service was very slow and staff weren't too friendly. But location and view is wonderful.

Thank you for your honest review. We are in the last stages of completion of our function center and unfortunately there is plenty of noise about. Sorry that interrupted your visit. Maybe you might be able to visit us again once everything is completed. Cheers! More

This winery is located a few kms out of Penneshaw on the road to Cape Willoughby lighthouse. Only a few kms are on a (good) dirt road before you turn off. Located in an amazing spot with fabulous views towards the mainland. Recently expanded bar/restaurant with a new function room facility and large balcony with awesome views. Small sandpit and...

Dudley Wines on Kangaroo Island has spectacular view of the coast from its alfresco dining area. The summer menu only offered three gourmet pizzas with no simpler options such as a Margarita or Ham and Pineapple. Unfortunately, the pizza base was dense, tough and very difficult to cut. Service was pleasant and the view is lovely.

Thank you for your review. We do have simpler options as we have a kids menu with exactly that....sorry if that was not explained to you at the time. Glad you enjoyed the experience and service too. Cheers! More

Dudley's offered amazing views and we spent the afternoon here. They had a balcony overlooking the hills, sea and mainland. We had great wine, beer and pizza. Try the delicious almond and orange cake, it is worth it.

You made it to dessert...well done! It is the best orange and almond cake with our own Viognier orange sauce. The best. Cheers! More

Took the complimentary LIMO SERVICE to and from the winery. Wine tasting was also free but the tastings were plentiful and generous. Knowledgeable server explained about some of the wonderful wines we tasted. Enjoyed a fantastic pizza. Well priced and generous size. The views were amazing. Definitely well worth the visit.
