Puddicombe Estate is a 214-year-old family fruit farm. The farm was initial established in 1797 where the family made their living as cattle farmers. This changed in the early 1900s when they transitioned to become fruit farmers. 1940 saw the planting of the first vineyard. Today the farm has approximately 300 acres of fruit. To keep up with changing times the owner Murray Puddicombe along with a wine master Jim Warren, formed a partnership to bring Stoney Ridge Winery was brought to the estate. Around the same time a general store, bakeshop, and café were built and opened to the public.
