Andrew Bailey is an eccentric, hard case, Southerner and subsequent founder of Misty Cove. Much like his wine Andrew matured (to an extent) into a man who loves life, great times and most of all viticulture. Spending his summers growing up in Marlborough fostered a passion for the misty coves of the Marlborough Sounds. So much so, he decided to name is wine after them and establish his winery in this bloody beautiful region.
It is often said that wine takes on the characteristics of the personalities surrounding it. For Misty Cove, this truism has seen it ripen and mature from a humble family founded company, into the full-bodied, loveable rascal it has become. Misty Cove distils this elaborate sounding mystique, into what we like to think as some very special vintages indeed.
Misty Cove doesn’t get overly caught up in the ‘faint hint of autumn leaves’ or ‘delicate plum overtures’ or even ‘crisp winter grass'. We prefer to focus on producing great wine for optimum enjoyment, which should quite frankly always be consumed with a group of like-minded mates.
