John is our viticulturist and joined the Cloudy Bay family in 2016 as Vineyard Operations Manager. In July 2018 he took over from Jim White as Viticulturist. He is also a member of the Cloudy Bay Blending and Technical Committees. At Cloudy Bay he is able to fulfil his passion, allowing every vine to speak for itself and showcasing the potential of each parcel of land in every bottle of Cloudy Bay wine.
