Dudley Wines is Kangaroo Island’s pioneer winery, established in 1997.
It is a small family run business and produces a 100% Kangaroo Island product, handcrafted on Kangaroo Island by fifth generation Islander Brodie Howard from Kangaroo Island fruit. Brodie enjoys bringing together creativity, passion and uniqueness in every bottle he produces. He controls every step of the process from grape to barrel to bottle as it is all done in the winery situated right alongside the vineyards on Kangaroo Island, and therefore he knows exactly what goes into every bottle. Brodie has never been one to play it by the book, and his unique blends reflect this. He loves experimenting, but has also gained Australia-wide accolades for his traditional wines.
An important aspect of grape growing on Kangaroo Island is it’s cool climate. It is distinctly maritime in nature, providing fresh evening sea-breezes throughout the ripening season. The result is grapes that have concentrated and clearly defined varietal flavour components.
Dudley’s cliff-top Cellar Door is situated on K.I.’s stunning North Coast at 1153 Willoughby Road, 12km from
Penneshaw, where you can taste their range of 14 wines and then stay and enjoy a glass or bottle on the deck.
