Duette is an unincorporated community in Manatee County, Florida, United States. State Road 62 intersects with Keentown Road in Duette. The area is home to Bunker Hill Vineyard and Winery. The only remaining single-classroom schoolhouse in Florida, Duette School, is on the National Register of Historic Places.


A post office called Duette was established in 1888, and remained in operation until 1907. The community may be named for a Canadian settler. In the early morning hours of January 17, 2016, the area west of the town was hit by a high-end EF2 tornado, killing two people and injuring four more.
