Cloudy Bay is pleased to announce the opening of their new Cellar Door – The Cloudy Bay Shed – in Central Otago, on Friday 27th July.
Located at their vineyard in Northburn (45 Northburn Station Road, Cromwell), The Shed will be open to the public 11am-5pm, Tuesday through Saturday, expanding to seven days a week from the summer months onwards.
The tasting room will offer the full range of Cloudy Bay wines to taste, and to enjoy by the glass, with light snacks available alongside. There will also be the opportunity to book a private tasting, or a range of custom-made experiences, including vineyard tours by land and by air.
Yang Shen, Estate Director, says of the opening, “This is the culmination of the hard work and vision of our team. We are so happy to have found a home in Central Otago and look forward to sharing our wine and lifestyle with visitors to The Shed”.
Cloudy Bay has been making wine from Central Otago since 2010, purchasing the Northburn vineyard in 2012 and leasing part of the Calvert vineyard on Felton Road in Bannockburn. Their acclaimed Pinot Noir “Te Wahi” combines the qualities of the two distinctive vineyard sites, and is distributed worldwide through Moet Hennessy.
About Cloudy Bay
Cloudy Bay was established in 1985 by David Hohnen, a pioneer and visionary, who was convinced of New Zealand wines’ great potential. The winery was among the first five to be established in Marlborough, the country’s finest wine region, and is now highly regarded for the superlative quality and consistency of its wines. More than thirty years later, Cloudy Bay remains New Zealand’s most recognized winery.
Sauvignon Blanc is the Estate’s flagship grape variety. Cloudy Bay also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pelorus sparkling wine. Cloudy Bay belongs to the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton group.
