This place was disappointing. The location and view is fabulous but the tasting sizes are very small for $10 - same size as other winery's give god free. The server was lovely but not particularly knowledgeable and the wine was average also. Shame!

The Cloudy Bay vineyard is a lovely place to visit. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about their wines. There are better wines in the region but it is definitely worth a visit.

We didn't have high expectations, but were really surprised by the quality of the wine. We particularly enjoyed their Chardonnay. There was a lot of people, but the staff was very professional and helpful at the tasting bar. We also enjoyed the setting.

The Marlborough region comprises a ridiculous amount of the NZ exports (say 90% for the sake of argument). The wines are delicious and Cloudy Bay is a well known staple world wide. Even though Sauvignon Blanc is what put Marlborough on the map, we loved...More

Iconic for sure, but somewhat snooty I am afraid. Our tasting experience at Cloudy Bay was a bit deflating because of a disinterested cellar door host and a somewhat scripted description of what we were tasting. Where’s the passion, and the joy of wine? It...More
