Dudley Wines’ vineyard is planted within the Howard Family’s 4000-acre property, known by the locals as ‘Porky Flat’. The Howard Family has a connection to Kangaroo Island dating back to 1883. Although it is a working beef cattle farm, the estate is still approximately 30% untouched native bushland. The vineyard is surrounded on two sides by malley scrub, home to native kangaroos and wallabies. Adjacent to the winery, an authentic cellar has been dug out of the hillside and walled with limestone to provide a stable environment to house the wine barrels.
False Cape Wines
Named after a nearby coastal landmark, False Cape vineyard was established in 1999. Located close to Willson River on the Dudley Peninsula, the location was selected because of the soil conditions and north facing slope. The vineyard covers 60 acres and is the largest on Kangaroo Island, promoting sustainable winemaking practises with the majority of wines produced organically.
