Don’t miss this place for a nice long lunch in the sunshine. The kids can play in the play ground area and smash a few golf balls while you can sit and relax. 💕

What a great place overlooking the bay. No wonder they have receptions here as well. Oh and the wine tasting went down well too!

We couldn't ignore the wedding requests any longer and had built our function and event room last year for this purpose. Such a stunning back drop for a wedding....the perfect island escape. Glad the tastings went down well too! Cheers!

We were taken to Dudley Wines as a group for wine tasting and a dinner. The views from the veranda are looking out over the rolling hills and ocean. A great spot for a taste of the Dudley Wines. A very breezy location.

Insufferably rude and unhelpful people at this place. Walked out, vowing never to return. They need a crash course in hospitality, courtesy, and how NOT to treat people! Insulting beyond belief. Embarrassed for international visitors.

What a stunning view from the verandah of Dudley's Winery. Great coffee and exceptional wines to taste and buy. Friendly, pleasant staff made our brief sojourn here memorable.

We called in to taste. Stayed for lunch (pizza & pate), more drinks & golf. Really friendly staff. Sensational views from the seating area. Went back a couple days later for coffee (delicious) just to enjoy the views again. Thoroughly enjoyed it will gladly return!

Had a fantastic lunch sitting on the deck with amazing view. Pizza and wine excellent. Our children loved hitting golf balls on the driving range while we enjoyed trying Dudley’s great wines.
