Kerry was brilliant, an excellent guide and tailored our tour to our needs as we had been to quite a few wineries already. She was informative and fun and gave us some great recommendations. Overall a great day out and really good value for money. Wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks Kerry!

What a lovely day out we had. Originally we were only booked on half day tour, but Kerry did her best at the last minute and arranged for us to join the full day. It was well worth it and the lunch was great. Would recommend without a seconds hesitation. Thanks Jonathan for a interesting and enjoyable day out.

Greatly exceed all of our expectations. Kerr listened to our preferences - quite diverse SE - ranging from wanting to seriously eplore Marlborough wine region to simply enjoy the scenery with very limited interest in wine. From this she developed a route and engaged us in conversations that led to a near perfect day. everything we had hoped for an... More

Thank you for your review. It was my pleasure to take you around this beautiful region. There are so many wineries doing organic wines now it is hard to choose which to take you but a mixture is good. All the wineries of the area have their own style to produce the grapes of Marlborough into some stunning wines. I... More

What a lovely day in one of the best wine regions of the world! Kerry was excellent, she loves her work and made an effort to accomodate our requests. Great combination of some large and famous vineries and small private ones. Cannot wait to come again next year

Our private tour of the vineyards with Kerry was superb. Kerry is a great organiser and guide getting us tastings at all our chosen wineries. The Graywacke tasting was the piece de resistance of a wonderful day which will stay in our memories for years to come. Many thanks once again, we would recommend your service without any hesitation.

Thankyou for you fantastic review. I am glad I could get to Greywacke for you as it isn't always available. The best thing any winery can ask in return is to keep looking up and buying their wine, and also spreading the news to other wine drinkers so they will try it. The four of you were a joy to...
