“Fun and Casual Wine Tour”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Had a great day touring in the Marlborough wine region with Bubbly Grape earlier this year. We were picked up in Picton and driven down to Blenheim in the Bubbly Grape van. The driver/guide was very personable and provided fun and relaxed perspective throughout the tour. The group was fairly small, which made it easy for the guide to adjust the itinerary on the fly to suit our individual preferences. Highly recommend them for a day of wine touring!

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Kerry made our wine tour of the Marlborough area a magical experience. We knew the area quite well so she encouraged us to help with choosing our destinations. Kerry is extremely professional, and her knowledge of the area, the wines, the vineyards etc was outstanding.

Kerry phoned ahead to each vineyard ensuring that we had personal and prompt service. She appears to have a great relationship with all the vineyards.

Winter was a great time to do this tour as it is less busy.

The cost was very reasonable for the service we received. We will definitely be back for another tour with Kerry and have already recommended her to friends.

“Fantastic personal touch and wonderful tour”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Kerry was a fantastic wine guide and brought us on a wonderful half day tour. Tip: go in winter as generally there are less tourists thus we got a highly personalised tour with just the 2 of us and Kerry's excellent companionship and commentaries. She discussed with us on what were our preferences and gave excellent suggestions on where to head next as she found out more about our taste and palate. The tour managed to convince us to dispel our previous stereotype on certain varietals e.g. The Sauvignon blancs as well as Chardonnays. We also visited this fantastic place which made butterscotch schnapps as well as shots which tasted like after dinner mints!! Kerry was a dear and made a call and a stop back at that place and went down to get us a receipt when we realised we forgot to get one for customs purposes when we return to Singapore. Ended the tour with a visit to a delicious chocolate factory which made good macadamia delights ! Bubbly grapes are definitely a first choice if you want to visit the wine yards in Marlborough without fuss n hassles !

“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

It was just the two of us on this tour but our guide Kerry was fantastic! So knowledgable and kind... The wineries she picked for us were much better than the ones we requested! Definitely recommended.

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had a lovely tour with Kerry when we were in Blenheim. It was just the two of us on the tour and we were brought to different vineyards based on what wines we liked. We were complete novices in wine terms, and it opened up our range of wines that we now enjoy. Kerry was so nice and is very knowledgeable. We highly recommend it.
