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.

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.

Thank you Dudley for another wonderful afternoon! Couldn't order from your kitchen menu due to renovations but we were offered an assortment of cheeses and dips from the DIY platter fridge! Looking forward to seeing the extensions when we visit next!

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
