Dudley Wines

Established in 1997, Dudley Wines is kangaroo island’s pioneer winery. it is a small, family-run vineyard, winery and cellar door, and produces a 100 per cent kangaroo island product that is handcrafted by fifth-generation islander Brodie Howard.

Howard combines creativity, passion and uniqueness in every bottle he produces, and controls every step of the winemaking process, from grape, to barrel, to bottle. kangaroo island’s maritime conditions, with fresh evening sea breezes throughout the ripening season, result in grapes with concentrated and clearly defined varietal flavour components.

Dudley Wines’ cellar door and newly opened function room is perched atop the stunning north coast of kangaroo island, with breathtaking views overlooking the Backstairs Passage and mainland Australia.

Visitors to the cellar door can taste a wide range of wines, sample some island-inspired dishes from the small seasonal menu, and browse through the winery’s range of wool and natural-fibre clothing. You can also try your luck at ‘golf across the gully,’ all in a relaxed, picturesque and family-friendly setting.



2016 Cape Hart Riesling

The Cape Hart riesling is intensely aromatic, showing blossom, white flowers, and hints of lemon sherbet, with a fine pure palate of flavours. it has balanced acidity, with fresh non-cloying natural fruitiness that finishes fresh and vibrant on the palate.

2014 Porky Flat Shiraz

This wine shows an intense depth of colour, with a blackberry/ blackcurrant nose, and just a hint of pepper spice. The palate shows an attractive dark chocolate and coffee flavour, with some cedary tobacco notes. This is gutsy full bodied wine with lots of cellaring potential.
