Ever since I tasted my first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I’ve heard about Cloudy Bay, the winery that brought this wine to prominence. They bottle a variety of wines but the Sauvignon Blanc is the master. Fresh, clear, fruity and wonderful. You can taste a variety...More

Great experience at Cloudy Bay. Beautiful and spacious. Staff is super friendly and the addition of a raw bar is a masterful plus. One of my fav stops of the wine adventure in Marlborough country. Highly recommend

Cloudy Bay wasn’t a planned winery to visit but was certainly one of the best and very glad we went. Had a spot of lunch while we were there which was delicious and extremely fresh and the staff were extremely knowledgable and very friendly.

We visited Cloudy Bay as part of a guided private tour, I am sure you can visit during the cellar door hours
