We enjoyed a really lovely and fun afternoon on a private tour, around some amazing wineries, with some delicious wines, in a stunning part of the country! Kerry kindly picked us up from our hotel in Blenheim, gave us a great introduction, a little notepad and pen, asked what we like/dislike and what we wanted from our tour. We visited... More

We booked this on the recommendation of our motel manager, and she was so right! Our vivacious guide, Kerry, was clearly well known at all the places we visited and we found her very interesting and knowledgeable. She tailors the tour to the interests of the group (e.g. we were interested in how the grapes are picked and she found... More

We really enjoyed our tour. Very personal service. Graham was very informative re the vines and the general overview of the wine industry in the area which my husband particularly enjoyed! We both also really enjoyed the tastings and the variety of the cellar doors that he took us to. Highly recommended.

If you are visiting the Marlborough Wine Region and you don't do a tour with Bubbly Grape, then you are missing out! This was such a highlight of our trip and we could not recommend it more.

My girlfriend and I did the Sauvignon Blanc tour and were treated to a brilliant afternoon visiting some wonderful Marlborough vineyards. Our guide Kerry was very welcoming, patient and friendly. She expertly drove the spacious and comfortable mini bus to each location whilst informing us of many aspects of wine making and production. The great relationship Kerry has with the... More

Door to door service for a wonderful day meandering through some of the beautiful wineries of the Marlborough region. As there were just the two of us (lucky us), Jonathon tailored the tour to our taste, he even took us to the rose gardens when he noticed how we enjoyed "smelling the roses"! We had a lovely lunch at the... More

Had a really good wine tour with my wife, in late Feb 2014. Bubbly Grapes's Kerry, was friendly, informative, always interesting. We tasted good wines(we had choices re wineries). The day and the wineries were varied, and the lunch platter was exceptional. Good company on tour too!

We booked our trip quite early and had to change a few days before the tour and arrange a pickup at the trotting track in Blenheim. Bubbly Wine Tours were very accommodating to our needs. The full bus was given the choice of where they wanted to go and absolutely no responses were forthcoming. So we chose, having a keen... More

We had lots of tasters in quite a few vineyards - it seems that Kerry's knowledge and contacts within the local wine area are very useful! She is such a bubbly character and makes sure our little...
