We welcome you to taste our beautiful cool climate wine at our friendly cellar door, which is open from 10 - 5 daily.

The Vineyard was a nice visit but I expected more from the reviews and photos online. I came through and I loved the ducks all over the place but unfortunately the service didn't buy me. We were set to pay for the pricey wine tasting but I got to taste one wine every 10 minutes. Unfortunately it took out the... More

We arrived at this beautiful winery just as the quacking ducks and 2 visiting geese swam and waddled to shore for a feed. Very cute. The winery is going through a refurbishment process but the warmth of staff and the quirkiness of ducks, both real and ornamental, still allows visitors to enjoy. The new building additions will only further enhance... More

What a fantastic afternoon spent at the fabulous Puddle Duck vineyard. After tasting some amazing wines together with Darren and Jackie adding info about the wines and other tid bits about the Tassie wine industry we then headed outside to enjoy a magnificent cheese platter with a beautiful bottle of Pinot. We will most certainly be back down soon to... More

Stopped on a recent visit to Hobart. With the cheese and biscuits we had purchased at the Wicked Cheese Factory down the road we were shown to a table in a marquee beside the duck pond. The building is undergoing renovations but was no inconvenience at all and the friendly staff helped us settle in and brought plates and cutlery.... More

Loved this vineyard, as it is a small boutique winery but best of all the wines are stella! Just beautiful. Whilst wines are like art in the sense it is very personal, however I thought your wine was on the money :-) thank you!

I come here every time I visit Tasmania. I think the wines are fabulous, the staff are really friendly and they obviously love what they do. The winery offers you the opportunity to BYOF (bring your own food) which can make it the perfect place for a long lunch. Their selections of wine are definitely worth trying and I always... More

Stunning views, the ducks are near by, the local dogs say hello. Wine tastings and not expensive either. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the wine is fantastic. On your way to Richmond village drop in. They are extending the venue at the moment but this does not interfere with tastings. You do not have to do the... More

Puddleduck Vineyard was a lovely experience - particularly as the service at some of the other local wineries had not been great. The staff were very friendly and personable, and the variety of wines was simply excellent. I took home 3 bottles of lovely wine!! Time was pressing - as always - and the vineyard is undergoing some new construction... More

What a great place to visit. The wines are fantastic and the owners and staff are so down to earth and friendly. Thank god I live on the mainland or I think this place would become my second home. Sitting out on the grass with a glass of their sensational Pinot wine and a tasty cheese platter, watching the duck... More

Currently undergoing some extensions. Good wine, but $10 a glass for tasting? I like the ducky theme, and the ladies working there were fabulous.
