Overview
More
​A charming, rustic cottage overlooking the vines is home to our small boutique vineyard and cellar door. Premium wines, all locally grown and crafted, coupled with old-fashioned service and a friendly smile is what you’ll find at our popular spot that welcomes dogs in the outdoor dining area. Enjoy a delicious platter of wine-friendly fare, or choose from the range of gourmet pies (some made with Ugly Duckling wines), while you relax and soak up the fantastic views across the Swan Valley to the Perth hills. Guests charmed by the food and wine can grab a souvenir including Ugly Duckling Wines cheese boards and glasses, olives, and wine produced from the vineyard. ​There’s live music here every Saturday and Sunday afternoon and a market day amongst the vines on the last Sunday of most months.

A more casual, down to earth cellar door compared to the stone behemoths elsewhere. A nice garden area with tables overlooking the vines. Small range of mid-level but quite drinkable wines. Worth dropping in to.

I can't lie. I do love this place. The huge wineries might have swagger, but they just pump through the people. Ugly Duckling is intimate and personal, and once you've been you'll wonder when to next come back. Yes it's small but that's the charm...More
