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.

Had a great wine tasting at Puddleduck Vineyard. No rush, plenty of info on the wines and generous size taste.

I really enjoyed my visit to Puddle duck winery. It is a family owned and run affair and they do it very well. It is in a beautiful setting, very relaxing. They don't have a huge range of wines but what they have are very good. We had our tasting with an excellent cheese platter and some amazing local relish.... More

Had a great time wine tasting and enjoying the stories from the Puddleduck Vineyard. All the staff (family) were very friendly and knowledgable about their wines and also told us the history of the vineyard as well as the vineyard pets. Wine was yum as was the verjuice.

Puddleduck was a great little place to stop on the way to Richmond. A very warm welcome with great wine tastings and duck stuff. Polly the dog was gorgeous :) we didn't have time to stay long, but want to go back for a BYO reverse picnic as the setting was beautiful with a pond, vineyard and lots of ducks!... More

3rd stop on our wine whiskey cheese tour as a group. Nick took us through the wine tasting and gave us so much more than just great wine! The history, the family, the beloved Basil, Polly and Lucky ... It was truly the highlight of the day! Thanks so much Nick and family! And we made it to Wicked as... More

Be prepared for a friendly reception and perhaps to part with your hard earned cash. Everyone at this family run environmentally friendly winery are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The wine is exceptional. The view over their pond is lovely and if you are lucky you may meet 'lucky duck'. Averaging $35 a bottle the wine can be sent home for... More

Visited here for a wine tasting and after being to other nearby vineyards which had spoiled us and set the standard too high, we were disappointed by puddleduck. It was more expensive than others, had less wines to taste and the amount of wine was significantly less. Another downside was that they encourage byo food to accompany the wine tasting,... More

Hi Amy, thanks for your feedback. As you may be aware, we are a very small, family run vineyard that produces around 1500 cases of wine each year, meaning that we do sell out of all of our wines each and every year. We always offer tastings of our current, complete range of wines at any time for all visitors... More

Loved the wine tatsting and cheeses offered, and that you can take your own picnic for outside areas if you wish. You need to purchase their wines beers, ciders and non alcoholic drinks. A great idea with their sign Reverse BYO. Building is beautiful and very picturesque with the lake and children's play area. Would recommend a visit. Great family... More

Spent the morning travelling around Hobart on a wine tasting experience, and popped into this gorgeous vineyard. Service from the owner was absolutely fantastic, scenery of the vineyard and pond were beautiful and wines that we sampled tasted gorgeous. Now that we are home in Scotland we keep looking for these wines and would highly recommend visiting here.

We experienced the cheese platter and wine tasting and it was delightful but the grounds are so family friendly and I can see a family picnic in the summer months. Very friendly staff.
