Unveiling The Cloudy Bay Shed

High profile New Zealand winery, Cloudy Bay, has brought a fresh dynamic to the Central Otago region with the recent opening of its new cellar door – The Cloudy Bay Shed.

The state-of-the-art cellar door and tasting room, located at the winery’s Northburn vineyard presents the company’s highly regarded and distinctive wine profiles.

“Cloudy Bay was established in 1985 by pioneer and visionary David Hohnen who was convinced of New Zealand’s great wine potential,” says Estate director Yang Shen. “The winery was one of the first five to be established in Marlborough and today is world renowned for its fine quality and consistency of wine.”

Cloudy Bay has been making wine from Central Otago since 2010 and the company purchased Northburn vineyard in 2014, also leasing part of the Calvert vineyard on Felton Road in Bannockburn.

“Our acclaimed Pinot Noir Te Wahi combines the qualities of these two distinctive Central Otago vineyard sites and is distributed worldwide through Moet Hennessy,” says Yang.

The Cloudy Bay Shed is open every day offering a full range of Cloudy Bay wines by the glass and a flavoursome bespoke food menu that includes light dishes and shared platters. People are welcome to visit the cellar door from 11.00am until 5.00pm and there are options for exclusive private tastings, vineyard tours by land or air and customised artisan food and wine experiences.

The stylish new Central Otago outlet draws on the collective skills of the talented Cloudy Bay team.

“This is the culmination of the hard work and vision of our team here at Northburn and we are delighted to have established a home for Cloudy Bay in Central Otago,” says Yang. “Sauvignon Blanc is our flagship Estate wine, but we also produce stunning Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pelorus sparkling wine and we look forward to sharing our wine and lifestyle with visitors to The Cloudy Bay Shed in Cromwell this summer.”
