Introduction of Dudley Wines

Dudley Wines is located in the east of (Kangaroo Island), a kangaroo island in southern South Australia, about 12 kilometers from Penneshaw, where the kangaroo island wharf is located.

Dudley Winery is a typical family winery founded by Jeff Howard (Jeff Howard) and Val Howard (Val Howard) in 1994. The Howard family has been working on kangaroo island for three generations, and Jeff and Val hope to grow some different agricultural crops from their ancestors in addition to sheep and beef cattle. Given the cool climate and abundant precipitation on kangaroo island and the limestone soil on the farm, Mr. and Mrs. Howard are advised to grow vines on the farm. Finally, after Jeff and Val planted a two-acre Sila (Shiraz); on the farm in 1994, the area of grapes gradually expanded to 20 acres today, and the variety of grapes planted was also very diverse.

The first batch of wine from the dadley's winery was named as the "Shearing Shaded Red", which was made by mixing the harvest of sisila and cabernet Sauvignon in 1997. As the wine's name suggests, the red wine is brewed, cooked and bottled in a trim wool house. Although the initial brew is very crude, the Dadley's winery is soon built to be one of the most popular wineries on the island, and the brewed wine is popular with local residents and travelers. Today, the Dadley winery has a wine-making winery, an advanced wine-brewing device, and a wine cellar built on the hillside to store 200 barrels of wine.
