Owner description: This winery's sauvignon blanc brought international attention to New Zealand's wine region.
Reviewed May 2, 2012

This winery had to be included based on its reputation, but that was where it ended. Wine tasting done by young people, and we felt very let down by the young man who served us, who seemed to had little knowledge of his winery or wines. As enthusiastic amateurs who had included quite a lot of wine areas in our itinerary this was most disappointing.

Really enjoyed this vineyard. Nice wines. Beautiful setting. Great looking tasting room and lush green lawn with a croquet set and lawn chairs.

Cloudy Bay offers two preselected wines to taste. If you prefer to taste more, there is a fee. We checked out a few wineries in the area.

Cloudy Bay is a big winery and we were hesitant about visiting, but we found it well worth the time. The staff was welcoming and we had the chance to try some of the less familiar Cloudy Bay wines. And the winery is beautiful,
