We really enjoyed our tour with Bubbly Grape which started early and lasted all day...I think. We were picked up from our motel and went to 6 wineries of different sizes, location and ownership (small family to corporate.) I must mention Vicky at Geisen, our last stop. We were a bit wined out by then but she made it very interesting and we ended on a real high. Our driver really knew his stuff and added lots of interesting local detail. Overall a good value for money day out.

After doing a bit of research we decided to take the Bubbly Grape Wine Tour!

We took the 4 hr half day tour. We rang Kerry late the day before and she booked us on the next day and drove out from Blenheim to Picton to pick us up!

We visited 4 wineries one of which we had lunch at. My partner really wanted to stop at the chocolate factory as well. We were well running overtime by the time we left the last vineyard however this wasn't a problem at all for Kerry she still stopped in at the chocolate shop for 15 minutes for the group to have a look around.

Kerry is a lovely person and a great guide! I would highly recommend her tour to anybody visiting the area. It was Awesome!

We had a great day with Kerry last week. Having visited vineyards in France and South Africa, this wineries tour is different. I would say it's more of a 'tasting tour'. For us, there was no visiting of the workings of the wine making process - ie behind the scenes + vineyard walks.
So if you want to enjoy the company of others + have loads of tastings (around 30 - i lost count!!) then this is right for you. Thanks to our fellow 'bubbly grape' tourists; Lara, Diane, Craig & Liz for making our day such fun.

The day from start to finish was great .
A group of four - very keen wine drinkers from Melbourne throughly enjoyed Jonothans knowledge and expertise in the area.

So many highlights - the Gourmet Lunch Wine Tour was well worth it - we dined at Allan Scott Wines an even met the man himself.

We would defiantly come back and do it again- maybe next time two days with Bubbly Grape!!!

Excellent tour. We took the half day one which was ample. Very personal, just four of us and Kerry
as the guide. Very friendly. Wide choice of possible vineyards, which one could choose from. We visited six including a very good behind the scenes tour.
