The Cloudy Bay Garden

Cloudy Bay, the pioneering winery in Marlborough, New Zealand, unites garden design with a wine tasting experience at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015.

Created by landscape architects and brothers Harry and David Rich, the show garden is designed to visually portray the subtle layers of complexity that make up Cloudy Bay wines.

Bold hues of red and white will represent Cloudy Bay’s signature wines, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and will convey “how things simply fit together through structure and architecture of the wine” says co-designer David Rich. The Marlborough terroir with its micro-climates and diverse soil types that deliver the intricacies of flavour and aroma will also be represented through the planting.

The Cloudy Bay Garden

The Cloudy Bay Garden is designed to be a place to enjoy wine, taking guests on a journey from the fresh and clean tones of a Sauvignon Blanc with fragrant white and green planting to the floral, dark and earthy tones of Pinot Noir with planting in red, purples and plums.

A moveable oak structure offering multiple perspectives of the garden whatever the weather provides a focal point in the garden and references the real Cloudy Bay ‘Shack’, a winery residence at he vineyard in New Zealand. Water features will portray the clean, crisp character of the Sauvignon Blanc, whilst the wood acknowledges the barrel ageing process.
