Cloudy Bay welcomes visitors to their cellar door with a unique menu of tasting options. The spacious cellar door is located at the winery itself on Jacksons Road, in the heart of the Marlborough wine region. Look for the streetside sign of Cloudy Bay's iconic label.
The cellar door space is light and contemporary. Floor to ceiling windows afford views into the working barrel cellar and out across the lawn to the majestic Richmond Ranges, synonymous with the Cloudy Bay label.
An open fire beckons in winter and, on those classic sunny Marlborough days, the over-sized doors slide back to enhance the strong sense of place. During summer, the Cellar Door offers light lunches of local, seasonal cuisine.
Enjoy a glass of Cloudy Bay wine in the expansive courtyard… amidst the natural elements that inspired it. Plan to stay awhile at the cellar door. Relax and unwind in Cloudy Bay's unique hanging egg chairs or on their oversized couches. Feeling active, challenge a friend to a game of petanque or croquet. Picnics welcome.
An exclusive range of Cloudy Bay merchandise and a small selection of wine and cook books are available for purchase at the cellar door. To learn more about our merchandise prior to your visit, please email the cellar door.
The Cloudy Bay winemaking team is constantly exploring new ideas and styles. At Cellar Door, we try to have exclusive and limited release wines included in the range tasting.
Large format bottles are also available for purchase - a perfect way to impress your host at a dinner party!

This unique visit experience includes exclusive cellar door wines, back vintage selections and a tour of our Pinot Noir cuverie.
