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.

Loved it! Make sure you visit (and taste)!

They were in a bit of a flutter with the new premises having only just been completed, but they more than made up for any disorder with super friendly staff (Jackie herself... read more

They were in a bit of a flutter with the new premises having only just been completed, but they more than made up for any disorder with super friendly staff (Jackie herself served us) and truly delicious wines! If you like proper champagne, try the bubbleduck (a fun name for an amazing sparkling). And the verjuice... Who knew you could... More

We visited Puddleduck and were delighted by the winery staff and the wines. It is situated on a farm with a huge pond and there are yellow ducks everywhere. The owners were very friendly and it was a fun place to visit. We bought 2 bottles of wine here and enjoyed them later on our trip.

Spent a few hours here with my Mum over a couple of glasses of Puddleduck Bubbleduck. We took our own food (mostly from the Wicked Cheese Company down the road), Puddeduck generously provided plates, cutlery and entertainment from Lucky Duck and Polly Dog. Also, I'm sure we met the whole family and they were all super lovely! Would be great... More

Currently being renovated and expanded, so be prepared, but our welcome was still warm and the cider tasting we did was unhurried, friendly and informative. Wine available to taste as well. Locally owned and operated. Close to Hobart airport and lovely Richmond village.

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
