Julian Forewood and Bernice Ong seek out the very best grapes from different regions of Australia in order to make refined wines that are pure and expressive. The name symbolises the relinquishing of their past security and structure (Ministry), for the freedom, independance and adventure (Clouds) inherent in their own venture. As James Halliday writes: “Trying to pick highlights is futile, simply because there are so many of them, and so few words available.” No surprise they are one of James’ best new wineries for 2015. This is the first time they have been on these shores and we can already see them staying for many years to come.
