Unbelievably some Wineries charge the Tour Operators on a per head basis and this will influence some Operators choice of Wineries. Bubbly Grape allows their clients to freely choose the Wineries and this means that your visit will be a consensus of choice rather than the selection of the Tour Operator. I found the whole day to be exceptionally professional... More

A lovely tour! We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour yesterday and our guide Kerry was amazing and couldn't do enough for us throughout the day. She was extremely knowledgable, passionate and informative which really made the day. The tour also included some nice touches such as a notebook and pen to write down favourites.... More

Thank you Amy for the great review.

Hence the book and pen works a treat. Take care and keep enjoying... More

Great wine tour with Jonathan. We had lots of fun trying different wine styles and wineries. Be sure to take lots of pictures and take down the names of the wines you like as you will not remember at the end of the day. A wonderful way to spend a day. We particularly enjoyed St Clair.

What a wonderful lady and host this Lass is. We had a great day of trying NZ wines and a good lunch at Alan Scott's winery. Nothing was too much trouble, I'm sure if you book with this tour you will enjoy the day. It's not cheap but if you pay peanuts you'll get a monkey to show you around!!
