Terrific fun….There’s no better and more relaxing way to experience the wines of Marlborough than with your own well informed personal guide who can get you into vineyards that are closed for “walk ins”, has heaps of information/knowledge at his finger tips…and has a breathalyser to check you are safe to drive that night. 😜
Jimmy was great company and made a great effort to put together an itinerary we would enjoy, given none of our group were that keen in Sauvignon Blanc.🤪
He comes highly recommended

My partner Anna and I recently spent a couple days in Blenheim during a trip down south - we searched a few wine tours and ended up deciding on Jimmy - and it was the right choice! From the moment he turned up in his luxury ride to the moment he dropped us back, it was clear Jimmy knows his stuff about the wine industry and is happy to answer all the questions you have about wine and the processes behind it all. He catered the wineries to our tastes and even managed to wrangle us a few extra taster glasses from the wineries due to his local experience. I’d happily do another tour with him and recommend it to anyone who wants the best while they are here!

We had two wonderful days visiting wineries in the Marlborough region organised by Jim. He is a lovely man who is very knowledgable about both the region and the wineries being involved in the business himself. The private tours at two of the wineries were exceptional and provided a wine experience that far exceeded our expectations. The two locations for our lunches were excellent and the food was great. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his tour to any lover of wine and food.

Jimmy was a fantastic tour guide. He took us to four different vineyards all with interesting points of difference. His knowledge is vast and his relationship with the owners is mutually respectful. He has a wonderful sense of humour and catered to the needs of our group very thoughtfully. We recommend him highly to anyone who wants a tailor made tour, with both quality and fun in the mix.

I was visiting Marlborough by myself and didn't have a vehicle, so when a friend recommended I go on a wine tour with Jim I jumped at the opportunity. When I booked, Jim asked me about my preferences and I told him I was keen to visit producers of obscure varieties. We had a great day, tasting at Clos Henri, Fromm, Rock Ferry, Hans Hertzog, and quickly at No 1 Family Estate at the end of the day. We also had a lovely lunch at The Wine Kitchen. Jim's wine knowledge is excellent, and he clearly has a good relationship with the owners and staff at the Cellar Doors he visits. Our conversation was easy, and he gave me a really good overview of the Marlborough region in general. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed Jimmy's private tour through Marlborough. We asked to visit wineries that focus on natural wines. Jimmy had a great knowledge of where to take us and set up private tastings in advance. Each winery was incredibly welcoming and one even gave us a private tour of their vineyard. We also enjoyed a great lunch at locally sourced restaurant in a beautiful setting.

Jimmy was a fantastic host who was very knowledgeable and friendly. His car was spacious and luxurious and we even got to meet his dog Alfie!

Needless to say, we highly recommend Jimmy for a private tour of Marlborough.

Jimmy's wine tour is a must. We joined him for a morning and he showed us around Blenheim and then took us to Clos Henri for a fabulous wine tasting. When we first met, he took time to really get to know us and then decided where we'd like best. The old flax mill was a highlight and he was full of information about the history of the area as well as the wines. This was a great way to see something of Marlborough and find out about the amazing wines they make there. Definitely worth doing.

Jimmy has a very deep knowledge of the area and of people managing organic boutique wineries in Marlborough. Spending the day with him was firstly a pleasure as he’s a gentlemen, and secondly we could learnt a lot of the history of the wine in NZ and in the area. Recommended to have a TaylorMade wine tasting experience.

Jim gave us such a good tour of Marlborough wineries! We would highly recommend and can’t wait to come back to Blenheim! My boyfriend and I really wanted to visit Cloudy Bay, where Jim talked us through all the wines. We loved it so much we had to join the wine club! After that we took Jim’s recommendations which were 3 beautiful wineries we really enjoyed - Rockferry, where we had a beautiful cheese and meat platter. Clos Henri which was the most beautiful setting and gorgeous Sauv and Fromm where we had our favourite Rosé of the day and a brilliant tasting. We even got to try the grapes and see the harvesting as we were there at a perfect time at the start of April. It really added to the experience!

Jim had a lot of knowledge about the area and the wineries and made a tailored tour for us, he was open to bring us to wineries we requested or make recommendations. Lovely comfy car, relaxed environment.

A great experience from start to finish. Booking and communication were first rate. Jim catered for our wine tastes and the whole day was superb. Throw in a great lunch booking which capped a wonderful day. Thanks Jim.
