The Cloudy Bay story is one of adventure, vision and commitment. In 1983 David Hohnen tasted his first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Captivated by its intensity, he began a journey to bottle the essence of Marlborough and share it with the world. David and winemaker Kevin Judd launched Cloudy Bay with a promise of uncompromising quality from grape to glass. It’s been that way ever since. Cloudy Bay’s legacy began in Marlborough with Sauvignon Blanc and now includes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pelorus méthode traditionnelle.
The spirit of adventure continues with Te Koko, a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc, and Te Wahi, a sophisticated Central Otago Pinot Noir. Our goal is to connect people to our home through each glass of wine, evoking New Zealand’s natural wonder and sense of simple luxury. Cloudy Bay wines are the pure taste of our home, an expression of our appreciation, admiration and respect for the land.
