The Islander Estate Vineyards
STAR CELLAR DOOR

We already know the Star performance of the team at Islander Estate.  This is a working winery, absolutely no frills. There’s no expensive landscaping, no cellar door hosting its own range of mustards and pickles, no coffee machine – but you can get that everywhere else!   What you do get is an attentive experienced winemaker – Yale Norris – and a range of distinctly Franco-Australian inspired wines, quite singular in taste. This is the taste of Kangaroo Island, a place that well-connected Frenchman, Jacques Lurton, of the Lurton winemaking dynasty of Bordeaux, first discovered on his honeymoon. It was love, land was bought and the journey continues.

Bay Of Shoals Wines
BEST LARGE CELLAR DOOR & BEST TASTING EXPERIENCE

Overlooking the most picturesque Bay of Shoal, the team at what we effectionatley call BOSH, provide you with an outstanding tasting experience, complemented with your choice of tasting platters.  Sit outside on the expansive grounds, find your own place to discover what really matters in life.

Dudley Wines
CELLAR DOOR WITH BEST FOOD

No trip to Kangaroo Island would be complete without a visit to Dudley Cellar Door.  Magnificent sea views across Investigator Straight, with food that hits the spot perfectly.  Grab a pizza, bucket of prawns, dips, or create your own platter and sit back and watch the world go by with a bottle or two of your preferred wine.  Also famous for golf, believe it or not, but Dudley would have to have one of the most interesting driving ranges known.

False Cape Wines
BEST ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCE (RESTAURANT AND SEA VIEWS)

False Cape wines can be found extensively around Kangaroo Island, but more widely known at the Penneshaw Hotel.  Sit outside in their cliff top dining area, or inside with the hustle and bustle and enjoy their beautiful wines with your perfect meal.
