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 little playground out the back to entertain the kids whilst you enjoy a wine and tasting platter. Beautiful spot on the lake! Definitely worth a visit, especially if you like duck memorabilia!

We had a wonderful experience in this beautiful family run and owned vineyard! We had a great Tasmanian cheese and homemade relish (with crispy crackers) tasting plate with a mixed tasting selection of Puddleduck's premium wines. All delicious! The setting is warm, cosy and fabulous. We laughed at the ducks' antics on the ground and in the pond - super... More

Having made a previous visit a few years ago, it was nice to stop in and see what changes have been made to this family run winery. We found it remained, a pleasant relaxed atmosphere for anyone, including families who may visit. Just enjoy the visit, taste the cheese and wine, whilst taking in the views with the changing autumn... More

Impressive winery with extraordinary service based on a family run business model. Try the vineyard platter for a casual lunch on the outside deck or indoors with a glass or two of their own locally produced Pinot Noir or Riesling. Ask for the next generation vintner's Taylor and Jess.

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
