“Iconic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

Well, we had to taste at Cloudy Bay, and were not disappointed by the wine, especially enjoying (and buying) their Pinot Gris and Gewurtztraminer. The young staff were friendly but not very well-informed, which was a bit of a disappointment, but sitting in the garden eating tasty pizzas was extremely pleasant.

“Good wines”

You have to pay $5 if you want to taste more than a couple of wines - but the experience is worth it.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
