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...

Really enjoyed an all-day tour of half a dozen or so Marlborough wineries with Bubbly Grape! Having arranged a pickup beforehand, Kerry arrived right on time and, after picking up a few additional guests, we were off. Kerry was very interested in what kinds of wines we liked, if we already knew of any wineries we absolutely wanted to stop... More

This was the best wine tour experience I have had in country and it's all due to Kerry's obvious passion for other people's enjoyment of what Marlborough has to offer. She was flexible in scheduling a tour that was convenient for me and customized which wineries to visit based on what I wanted to do/see/eat/drink. Her wonderful stories and caring... More

Kerry I finally got round to writing my review!! I have twice toured with Kerry and will 100% be back for more. As pretty much everyone has mentioned Kerry is knowledgeable, customer centred and so friendly. No request is too much. The little extras such as notebooks to record your favourite wines and delicious crackers to soak up excess wine... More

Much appreciated. Word of mouth is brilliant. You are welcome back at any time I would love to take you... More

We had the pleasure to spend yesterday with Kerry who collected us from our hotel and custom made a tour to suit us on the fly. As I have some Irish blood she fitted in a vineyard started by an Irish fella and as we had not eaten she fitted in a vineyard with an excellent tasting platter to give... More

Me and my two mates did this tour back in July. Kerry was an amazing lovely guide! We called and organised the tour the day before and she was more than happy to accommodate us even though we were catching the ferry over from the north island in the morning. After feeling a bit bad for being late due to... More

Thanks Cassie for the great review. It was my pleasure taking you out on the tour. You are always learning no matter what the age so you are never to young or old to do the tour. I'm glad that I could do the tour being that the ferry was late. At least you were very relaxed after the tour,... More

Myself and my partner knew that we wanted to do a Marlbourough wine tour and we were extremely happy that we chose Bubbly Grapes. The guide (and business owner), Kerry, picked us up from our hotel around 12pm and dropped us back again later that afternoon. It was extremely well organised and thought out and ensured that we didn't need... More

Thanks Adam for the great review. We try to go the extra mile where we can because we want you to have a memorable time and come back if you are in New Zealand again.

Thankyou for the great review. We had a great friendly group and had some great chooses of wineries we visited. I hope you had a good rest after the tour. It is always needed after the Gourmet Lunch.

Kerry is a great lady , very friendly, and has an amazing knowledge of wine, and in particular, Marlborough. Everyone on our trip had a great day. If you want a wine tour to remember, go with Bubbly Grape! Tino
