Cloudy Bay vineyards are spread between two emblematic wine regions, full of climatic and geological diversities: Marlborough, the birthplace of new-age winemaking in New Zealand, and Central Otago, the world’s most southern wine region. Year after year, the estate strives to grow its understanding of the land to reveal optimal grape and terroir combinations. This spirit is the founding element of Cloudy Bay’s signature style.
Yang Shen spent five years in Ningxia, China, where he played an integral role in establishing Domaine Chandon China, before moving to the Southern Hemisphere to become Estate Director at Cloudy Bay. In his role, he is charged with ensuring Cloudy Bay remains a beacon of quality for Marlborough wine. More than what goes into every bottle, it’s also about ensuring the Cloudy Bay story is told with passion in every country.
“By enjoying a glass of Cloudy Bay, you start a journey of purity and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of our terroir.”
Yang Shen, Estate Director
