Glimpse of a luxury world (NZ)
A sommelier experience at Cloudy Bay Vineyards is a reminder of Marlborough’s premium place on the international wine map, reports The Marlborough Express. Came a hot Friday, and I was seated with six strangers in an upstairs room at Cloudy Bay, watching the wind ruffle the vines below. In front of me was a six-glass spread of sparkling glasses and the silver service setting for a three-course lunch. At the head of the table sat Cloudy Bay sommelier Stephanie McIntyre.
