Well Chilled…

  • Our Well Chilled afternoons at Bondi Pavilion were alive with great food, delicious wines, music and a buzzing crowd. If you couldn't make it, here are some of the highlights (and the recipes!)

  • Celebrating an incredible 35 years of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc! This year's drop boasts subtle tropical notes with hints of passionfruit backed by zesty grapefruit and kaffir lime.

  • Overlooking the stunning views of Bondi Beach, our guests enjoyed Donna's vibrant food, an oyster bar and of course some premium Cloudy Bay wine.

  • These pretty pink popsicles are perfect for those hot summer days. Pair with Cloudy Bay Pelorus Rosé to make an instant cocktail (and a fresh, fun way to chill your drink!)

  • If you're after for some fresh ideas for summer entertaining, be it long lunches or chilled beach days make sure you bookmark our recipes!

  • These super delicious and fresh fritters are certainly a crowd pleaser, and they pair perfectly with our favourite…. Cloudy Bay Chardonnay.

  • Feeling a glass of Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir? These hand-pies filled with sweet pumpkin, caramelised onion and spicy chorizo brought out notes of Morello cherry in the wine.

  • This vibrant chicken dish was voted most popular, with its perfect mix of spicy and summery green mango salad. The subtle tropical notes of Cloudy Bay's Sauvignon Blanc make it the perfect partner.

  • Good times, friends new and old... We had a blast! If you're gathering friends and family this summer share some fresh, vibrant food and a glass of Cloudy Bay!
