Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay Winery was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough New Zealand.
However, Cloudy Bay’s founder – David Hohnen from Margaret River – was convinced of its potential to produce great wine. Cloudy bay winery takes its name from the local Bay.
Captain Cook explored the region and noted the sediment coming down the river making the water in the bay cloudy. Hence, the name Cloudy Bay.
In 2003 Cloudy Bay Vineyards was bought by the multinational luxury goods firm LVMH Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy through its champagne house Veuve Clicquot. Cloudy Bay has a reputation for making consistent quality wines, hence they are usually found on the top shelf.
