A wine retailer with a difference. Our specialty is wine from small Australian wineries and limited production wines. Sorry, no factory made wine here - all our wines are made in the vineyard where all good wines are made. Cloudwine began in 1999 with the launch of the website, after a few years keeping the wine hidden in a warehouse and trading purely online we decided to expand so non web saavy wine lovers could also enjoy the great wines we had on offer. And on a sunny Spring day in October 2002, Cloudwine Cellars was born in downtown South Melbourne.
