Thank you Kerry for an amazing tour. We booked the half day tour and still managed to visit five wineries! Kerry was extremely knowledgeable and as we were visiting during harvest season explained the process to us and pointed out the various machines. We sampled lots of different wines and developed lots of new favourites! Kerry made sure we were... More

We were collected on a dismal Sunday lunchtime, clouds low drizzle pending. THe Bubbly Grape Wine Tour Bus appeared and the sun came out! We visited 5 wineries and had a knowledgeable and delicious tour thereafter. Cant recommend highly enough, very accommodating and Kerry a fabulous host.

Firstly, I'd really recommend doing a wine tour. There are so many wineries in the area that we were a little overwhelmed. Also, you're drinking a fair amount of wine so you wouldn't be safe to drive. A tour sorts all that for you. Secondly, once you've decided to do a tour. Book Bubbly Grape. Kerry (out host) was so...

We went on the gourmet lunch tour and were joined by 6 other people. The group size was nice and everyone was introduced at the beginning which was really nice. We went to 6 different wineries picked out by Kerry as we didn't have any great preference. All the wineries were lovely but our favourites were Saint Clair and Forrest!... More

Excellent host (Kerry) who went out of her way to tailor the day to all 6 of us on the tour allowing us to suggest any places we particularly wanted to visit. Great choice of vineyards from smaller more boutique to the grander well-known names. Very knowledgeable and gave us great background information about the area and its history of... More

Thank you for the great review. Jonathan will be thrilled that you spend the time to review us. It is always great to leave at least one winery up to the guides discretion because there are a lot of wineries that you have never heard of but going with a local you will be glad you did. There are hidden... More
