Overview
More
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 in our outdoor areas. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We were welcomed by the owners family and met all of them over wine tasting. We are seniors from Canada and loved to be spoiled. The owner introduced us to "Lucky" the duck. and explained the history of their wines only available in that district....More

We tried the "Reverse BYO" arrangement which works nicely, with a reservation. Outside only but no umbrella/cover - so bring hats and coats. Wine was very pricey and the quality didn't match. The price of their (award winning) sparkling was more than most high quality...More
