Winemaking Philosophy

At Cloudy Bay we strive to expand our understanding of our land to reveal optimal grape and terroir combinations. This spirit is the founding element of Cloudy Bay’s signature style and begins with the selection of the best vineyards: a collection of rare parcels in Marlborough and Central Otago.

At Cloudy Bay, we are passionate about creating wines which express our regional and national character, through the Cloudy Bay lens.

We work alongside Nature to translate and enhance its quality and obtain the pure, aromatic flavors of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
