Wineries we visit

We visit some amazing local wineries here in Marlborough on our wine tours. Some of the wines you can try include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gerwurztraminer, Chardonnay, Gruner Veltiner and many other grape varieties.

We don’t always run to a pre-arranged schedule of winery visits so that we can factor in everyone’s requests.

Award winning local guides

Our small, cheerful Bubbly Team was described as “hosts as effervescent as champagne” by New Zealand’s Lonely Planet 2008 guidebook under top tours in Marlborough, and we haven’t changed.

We are bubbly in nature and liked by the local wineries who strive to offer the best service for our clients.

Let us “Drive You to Drink!”
