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.

Honestly one of the friendliest wineries we have ever visited (and we have been to a far few...). The moment we were entered we were greeted with a warm smile and even warmer newly renovated cellar door. After a delicious tasting we headed out to the deck, blankets in hand, to watch the ducks, admire the epic view, eat our... More

We have a extremely enjoyable deluxe and welcoming cheese tasting experience at Puddleduck. ...only problem is perhaps we bought too much wine for our budget! And all too easy, as wine was all shipped back home.

We were met at the door by Darren & Jackie, then subsequently introduced to their son, nephew and Polly the dog. Never got introduced to the duck as she was currently not around 😀 Everyone was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. We tried the cheese platter and wine tasting at $25 per head. Four wines in total,... More

My family of 4 made a last minute decision to go out to a winery-based restaurant for Easter Sunday lunch. Having not booked anything in advance, we had no chance getting in anywhere at such late notice. We headed out Puddleduck way anyway, and eventually decided we'd go to Wicked Cheese for lunch, but that was booked out, so we... More

This is a really pleasant winery with super friendly staff, a lovely outlook and very nice tassie wines. Definitely worth a stop on the way to Richmond.

Liked the name so thought we would stop in, very glad we did. Had a simple tasting at the bar (no charge if purchase wine). Nick looked after us and was knowledgeable and charismatic. Family owned and the wines were excellent, we bought a mixed case with free freight. Currently renovating and would be fantastic to sit on the deck... More

Nice wines, nice presentation - be ready to pay $15 per person for the tasting to be added to your purchases, not deducted as is usual - not mentioned but apparently written somewhere (not on the tasting notes). Can be a bit of a shock when you pay for your purchases, and then the tasting on top.

Hi Ari - it sounds as if you have been confused by our offerings - we offer three levels of tasting; Bar tastings are $5 (which are refunded on wine purchase) and our sit down tastings which are presented with the Plumm varietal wine glasses and given more generous pours are $15 without cheese and $25 with cheese. These are... More

My husband and I stopped in here on a whim after a day trip to Richmond. We were a bit hesitant due to them being in the middle of renovations but we went in anyway-you wouldn't have even noticed as the hosts were so warm and welcoming! We did a wine tasting with the son who was extremely friendly and... More

Dropped in here on a whim while out with a group of mokes - and so glad I did. warm wonderful people, delightful setting and great wine and cider. Not cheap but all quality. The bubbleduck was fantastic - and I could not resist the wild cider. Next time Im back in Tassie I will be by with a picnic... More

We cam here on a wine tour and it was my favourite winery of the day. They were still building the new extension so we sat outside by the lake watching the ducks being fed. We thoroughly enjoyed the cheeses and wines that we sampled as well as the history of how Puddleduck came to be. Well worth a visit.
