About This Producer
Best known for its clean, crisp and vibrant Sauvignon Blancs, Cloudy Bay Vineyards has been at the forefront of the New Zealand wine craze since the mid-'80s. The winery is named for the first large bay down the eastern side of New Zealand's South Island, which is pictured on the label along with Mount Riley, the most prominent mountain in the area. The Marlborough region offers perfect growing conditions for Sauvignon Blanc, including long, hot summer days, followed by cool nights. Cloudy Bay is owned by the French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, which maintains a controlling interest in the estate.
