A Cloudy Bay in Paradise


Taste the Cloudy Bay way of life. This invitation-only experience is steeped in the elegance and terroir of Marlborough wine country. Santé.

They call it The Shack, but it’s hardly that. Cloudy Bay’s invitation-only guest house is the epitome of elegance and finesse. Much like the world-class wine brand it stems from. And it’s perfect for a friends’ getaway or family gathering. 

This is a rare glimpse into the world of Cloudy Bay. ‘Exclusive use’ means your group can relax and feel right at home. Surrounded by the epicurean delights of the region, you can savour fresh local and seasonal produce served up by a private chef and waiter. 

And then there’s Dave. Your private tour guide - well, tour 4WD. This restored 1985 Landrover Defender will whisk you away for a private tour of the vineyard. And afterwards, you can work your way through complimentary bottles of your favourite Cloudy Bay wines, having explored firsthand the terroir they express. 

There is only one Shack and one Cloudy Bay. Any time you see a bottle anywhere in the world you’ll have a story to tell. This is just the beginning…

Your Stay


A showcase of natural materials and contemporary design

If you like your shack to be the awe-inspiring kind, beautifully designed and with views to match, then this is the Shack for you. 

This self-contained oasis is immersed in the world of Cloudy Bay. Constructed from natural materials, including weathered steel, wood, stone and glass, it showcases the best of New Zealand art and design in its modern living spaces. 

Four queen bedrooms feature private en suites (three include bathtubs). And if it’s not yet obvious that the Shack is steeped in its gorgeous surrounds, the room names are a giveaway: the Cape Suite, The River Suite, The Mountain Suite and the Cloud Suite.

With its kitchen well stocked, you won’t go hungry - think gourmet local products, breakfast provisions and snacks. You won’t go thirsty, either - with local beer & beverages, and of course, the full range of Cloudy Bay wines to work your way through.

So, charge your glasses and say cheers to a delicious Cloudy Bay getaway.

The modern living spaces flowing out onto the lawn, with views of the iconic Richmond Ranges (the very same that feature on Cloudy Bay wine labels).

"A winery tour that gets you behind the scenes of this operation and gives you an appreciation of what makes these guys the leaders in the wine industry, by the time you get to the wine tasting even the the most uneducated beer snob will start to see the light."
