Winemaker

Kevin Judd

Thanks to the dynamic adopted throughout the country, New Zealand has succeeded in turning its challenging climate into an advantage and today produces wines with freshness and aromatic intensity. Marlborough is the country’s leading wine region, both in terms of volume and reputation. This reputation is largely due to Kevin Judd, who was the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay and pioneered the style of wine with which Marlborough has become synonymous – wines with zippy minerality, great acidity and beautiful aromatic profiles.
