Glad you found our pizzas "the best we have ever eaten". And as you mentioned we are a stop for many visitors before they hop onto the ferry home. Thank you for your lovely review....Cheers!

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...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!...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?...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...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...More

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.
