Dear KiwiKerry53, It was great to have you join us on our Winter Warmer Wine Tour in July. We really appreciate your continued support. We’re so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the wine tour. These three wineries are definitely on our regular favourites list but happily more cellar doors are opening up again as the warm weather hits. We’re delighted to see the resilience in the local Marlborough wine industry. Thanks so much for your kind review. The Sounds Connection team

Frank, our driver, was a wonderful tour guide as well as a good driver. Well worth doing just to help decide which wines are NOT to your taste! Amazing how differently Sav tastes from one winery to another.
