With all the time in my hands (um, you know what I’m talking about), I’ve spent a lot of time revising old travel photos. Photos of better days, more adventurous days, days that were often spent with a glass of wine in one hand and a generous portion of cheese in the other. Days when I visited Cloudy Bay in New Zealand’s legendary Marlborough.
This region is known worldwide for being the heart of Sauvignon Blanc, with too many awards and accolades to list here. So I thought I would tell you all about my trip to Cloudy Bay to hopefully inspire your own escape for wine lovers.
If you need an adventure when the borders open, why not consider New Zealand?
Check in: The hut in Cloudy Bay
I was lucky enough to visit Cloudy Bay as a guest last year. The vineyard celebrated the start of the summer season in October and flew with a handful of guests from Australia, China and Hong Kong.
I spent three nights here in the cabin with endless activities in the many vineyards. We spent time with local producers of goat cheese, pine nuts and local honey and understood first hand the farm-to-table approach that New Zealand is so celebrated for.
Price: You can book The Shack for an exclusive two-night package. This includes all meals, vineyard inspections and on-site activities for NZD 4,900 per person.
