Runner Duck Estate is a 3 hectare boutique vineyard located near Warkworth, a town that pays homage to the duck. It was planted in 2003 and comprises about 1.5 hectares of Syrah, with the remainder being in Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot allowing Runner Duck Estate to begin producing a pure Bordeaux varietal and Syrah.

Our sole objective is to produce a small amount of truly ‘iconic’ red wine that is experienced amongst the world’s discerning wine drinkers. We have the ability and the commitment to be completely uncompromising throughout the entire process. Unless the year is an outstanding one, we simply will not produce wine under our label. Our commitment to great quality wines sees them in barrel for at least two years and in bottle for at least 6 months to ensure well-seasoned and balanced drinkable wine production.
