The location was absolutely perfect and the staff friendly. The sauvignon blanc 2005 was delicious! Unfortunately the snacks at the raw bar were still frozen in the middle. We should have tries the oysters maybe.

This excellent vineyard is situated very close to Blenheim. Thoroughly enjoyed wandering the property and sampling some wines.

Loved their 2015 Pinot Noir. Beautiful setting. Staff were a little busy / flustered when we came in but we didn’t mind waiting. Enjoyed the tastings, sat outside and enjoyed some of the Pinot Noir! What’s not to like.

A bit rushed as there is a constant flow of people through. Beautiful grounds to hang out on the lawn. Full menu is offered after December 1, before that it’s only cheeses. Three levels of tastings - $10, $15 and a higher price point.

This place was disappointing. The location and view is fabulous but the tasting sizes are very small for $10 - same size as other winery's give god free. The server was lovely but not particularly knowledgeable and the wine was average also. Shame!

The Cloudy Bay vineyard is a lovely place to visit. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about their wines. There are better wines in the region but it is definitely worth a visit.

We visited Cloudy Bay as part of a guided private tour, I am sure you can visit during the cellar door hours
