This was definitely money well spent and we had a wonderful day. Kerry went above and beyond and was helpful. We went to Highfield (great views), Forrest (great wine but strange, frazzled tasting), Bladen (ahhhmazing owner, story, and wines), Wairau River (lunch and tasting) and one other one that I can't remember! The only thing that I find strange is... More

When travelling alone without a car, a vineyard tour is a great way to see the beautiful area. It didn't matter that I don't drink, Kerry was a great host and made sure I was having a lovely day. There was also chocolate and fudge! She was even kind enough to drop me at the airport so we could extend... More

Kerry picked us up from our B&B in Blenheim and after we'd rounded up the rest of the group of 8 in total we headed off. Kerry skilfully put together a great selection of wineries to fit in with the wishes of the members of the group, from Brancott and Cloudy Bay to the much smaller Bladon and Fromm wineries... More

Thank you for your great review, I'm glad you had a great time. We try to work around everyone's requests and get to some great places.

Kerry led a really informative and fun day trip to a number of Wineries in the Blenheim area. Never mind Cloudy Bay, the Jackson's are still on Cloud Nine.

We did a full day tour with Kerry, she picked us up from our accommodation in Picton and our tour covered six wineries in Marlborough with the company of four other couples. Would agree with the other reviews Kerry is helpful, knowledgeable and keen to please and is well accepted in all the venues we visited. Would highly recommend Bubbly... More

Wow! Just wow and thank you. You had made my day. I love it when guests give us reviews and write such glowing things. If it wasn't for the lovely people we have on the tour and the winery staff we wouldn't be recognized like we are today. Thank you everyone! Your all wonderful, Kerry ;-) More

Thank you for the great review. It is definitely great to get a private tasting. This isn't always available but when it happens it is great. Staff in the wineries are amazing.

Our guide Kerry is entertaining and make the tour fun. I visited six wineries in Marlborough, and tasted around 30 types of wine, and had lunch at one of them. The view and meal was perfect.

Thanks Kenji for a great review, and thank you for your emails when you have enjoyed the wine you got sent home. It made me happy.

Kerry picked us up at the hotel in a very nice, big, clean van. A great way to get around when you are drinking and used to driving on the other side of the road (we are from USA). Once we were all picked up, Kerry handed out maps with all of the local wineries and took input on which... More

Thank you for your good review. It always pays for a tour guide to ring ahead even with a couple of guests because the wineries like it and don't get placed in the middle of a full tasting room. It is good when a winery likes your guide as they give you a great tasting. win, win. The meat pies... More
