Puddleduck Vineyard is a small family Tasmanian Vineyard owned by Darren and Jackie Brown. We welcome you to taste our beautiful cool climate wine at our friendly cellar door, which is open from 10 - 5 daily. Whilst here you will probably meet Polly our wine dog, or Lucky or cellar door duck. Feel free to have a "Reverse BYO" (you supply the picnic food and we supply the beverages) to enjoy while in the area.

Great venue with tables inside and out with a wonderful outlook. Great wine tasting with cheese with some excellent wines and a knowledgable and friendly host. Worth the visit.

Nice winery with a picturesque desk over looking a lake and vineyards, complete with ducks. Wines were nothing special and quite expensive. If you make the same types of wines as everyone else and want to charge top dollar the wines have to be better. In my opinion they weren't,not bad, just expensive.

The owners are passionate about their wine business and was interesting to hear their story and how far they have come. Also great to sample their wines although bottle of bubbles was rather expensive but they do sell out!!! So not too expensive for some. The grounds are beautifully kept and with the sunflowers it certainly has the feeling of... More

The owners of this small vineyard have obviously put much love and effort into their boutique winery and the presentation was very personal. Equally impressive was their fund raising for three cancer charities. $10 purchased a numbered plastic duck which... More
