We had a fantastic day, start to finish! It's was a small group which kept it very personal. Kerry asked us for winery preferences at the start of the day and managed to book us into over 6 wineries including a great little chocolate shop and a fabulous lunch at Withers Hill Winery. Kerry was really informative along the way,... More

I'm been on quite a few wines tours across Aus/NZ and this has by far been my favourite. Kerry, Bubbly Grapes owner and our fantastic tour guide was such a joy to spend the day with. She listened to what sort of wines we liked and disliked and tailored the tour for us, showing us some amazing wineries where we... More

Even prior to the tour, Kelly was a gem. She was fast to answer my questions by email (wanted to know if a baby would be ok with this tour, and it wasn't an issue: she even had a baby seat for the bus) and was really helpful. The tour itself was also really interesting. We were a group of... More

As huge fans of Malborough SB, a wine tour was always a must on our trip to the South Island! This one certainly didn't disappoint. We went on a 1/2 day tour with Kerry as our guide. She was fantastic, full of knowledge and good sense of humour too. The tour was very personalised, allowing everyone some input into which... More

This was a great half day wine tour. Our driver/tour guide Kerry was absolutely delightful. She arrived on the dot (despite having picked up a group earlier) and was instantly welcoming and easy to talk to. She was open to suggestions as to which wineries we should visit. She knew which were worth checking out and at what time we... More

An amazing day with Kerry. She kindly still took us out on a half day tour even though it was only us! We had very genuine, personalised and knowledgeable service of the Marlborough wine region and the pick of our wineries. Kerry even offered to take us to the supermarket on the way back to our accommodation if we needed... More

We had an amazing afternoon travelling through the Marlborough wine region with Bubbly Grape. Jonathan and Karen were our guides, and were absolutely fantastic; funny, engaging, knowledgable and attentive. There were around 8 of us in total on the tour and my husband and I joined the group half way through (we booked the 1/2 day). While the others on... More

We went on the Gourmet wine and food tour. It was the highlight of our trip to NZ. Kerry was fun and obviously knew the area well. We went to some fantastic vineyards where the staff were as helpful as Kerry. Having a tour guide that has a good relationship with the places you are going makes a big difference.... More

We have just spent a wonderful day in the company of Kerry from the bubbly grape wine tour. The tour took us around some perfect vineyards in Marlbrough all custom designed to our wishes. For instance, one of my 'bucket' list items was a glass of cloudy bay in the vineyard,where it was grown. Now done and ticked off the... More

Thank you Jill for the wonderful review. It was a great day and the views from Brancott were amazing. And I was so pleased to be with you when you filled one of your entries on your bucket list, Cloudy Bay. One of the most requested wineries out of the valley. When you need to have a visit to this...
