Cloudy Bay Back By Popular Demand
Surrey’s favourite New Zealand Wines from Cloudy Bay are back in store on Saturday 14 July as we once again invite you to join us in store as we experience all things Cloudy Bay with a 'pop-up tasting.'
Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough. At the time, it was almost an unimaginable place to set-up a vineyard. But Cloudy Bay’s founder - David Hohnen - was convinced of its potential to produce great wine and invested in the best land of the region. Since then, Marlborough has risen to become New Zealand’s leading wine region, as well as one of the finest winemaking locations in the world.
The winery was named after Cloudy Bay, a body of water explorer Captain James Cook came across during his voyage to New Zealand in 1770. His discovery coincided with flooding in the region, which washed large amounts of sediment into the sea. Noticing the water’s opaque appearance, Cook cleverly christened the area Cloudy Bay.
Today, Cloudy Bay not only captures the essence of Marlborough but also embodies New Zealand's luxury to the world. The luxury of space and time, of intimate moments and nature’s rarest qualities. In the words of the founder, David Hohnen, "Many people can remember their first taste of Cloudy Bay, they were captivated by the wine."
