The team at Dudley Wines are celebrating their recent win in the Gourmet Traveller 2019 Best Cellar Door Awards.

Dudley Wines took out the 'Star Cellar Door Award', as well as 'Best Tasting Experience' for their region. It is a back-to-back win for the winery, which won the same awards in 2018.

Located in Cuttlefish Bay, Dudley Wines was also featured in the April/May issue of Gourmet Traveller Wine.

Dudley Wines is run and owned by Jeff and Val Howard, their three children and their families, with the Howard family history on Kangaroo Island dating back to 1883.

To win back to back Star Cellar Door for 2018 and 2019 is definitely worth celebrating!

TAM BAILEY from Dudley Wines

Tam Bailey of Dudley Wines said the team were very excited about the win and look forward to celebrating with visitors.

"To win back to back Star Cellar Door for 2018 and 2019 is definitely worth celebrating," Tam said.

"We have recently developed some new tasting options at the cellar door, which adds to the overall experience we offer.

"If you haven't visited in a while, be sure to pop out for a taste, or spend the afternoon soaking up the whole Dudley Wines experience!"

In his review, David Brookes from Gourmet Traveller Wine commended the winery's range and location.

"The view from the deck at the Dudley Wines cellar door is really something," he wrote.

"As far as I'm concerned, and I'm sure you'll agree, the opportunity to hang out on a deck, drinking wine and nibbling on something delicious while spotting whales and dolphins is something that gets a big 'tick'.

"Their range of wines and tasting flight options are great and there are a number of platter and pizza options for those in need of sustenance after the ferry trip from the mainland.

"Plenty of space for the kids to burn off some energy while you chill out and enjoy that view, too."

Mr Brookes' top drop was the 2015 Dudley Wines Porky Flat Shiraz.
