Join us in the sunny Marlborough region for a fun-filled New Zealand wine tour.
We offer a range of NZ wine tours in Blenheim, Picton and throughout the Marlborough region – the largest wine growing region in New Zealand, and home to the famous sauvignon blanc. Follow the Marlborough Wine Trail with us, whilst combining exquisite Marlborough wine tasting experiences with delicious locally grown wine and food for an amazing Marlborough wine weekend.
The beautiful Marlborough region enjoys year-round sunshine with some of the highest sunshine hours recorded in New Zealand. Surrounded by sunken valleys, the stunning Marlborough Sounds are home to all kinds of wonderful bird and sea life, such as terns, shags, blue penguins, dolphins and seals. It is truly one of New Zealand’s must visit locations! You will get many opportunities for great photos along your winery tour, as well as learning lots of interesting things to help you appreciate the wine and the area.
Our wine tour packages don’t only include tasting the beautiful, well produced wines of this gorgeous region, we also visit some local gourmet and boutique food shops, including a delicious chocolate shop. Have somewhere you’d really like included on the tour? Just let us know and we’ll see if we can include it!
Highlight of our holiday
I cannot say enough good things about Bubbly Grape Wine Tours. From start to finish we had a blast.
We often say that a good guide can make a good day into an excellent one and this is the case here. Kerry is very friendly, passionate about her business and knows a lot about wine and the region. We booked The Special Reserve Tour and managed to get to 5 very different wineries, all brilliant in their own right but we never felt rushed at any point.
Kerry took us to a different winery for lunch based on what the group felt like and it was an excellent choice. The little lunch box of crackers is a nice touch too as there is quite a lot of wine consumed from very early on in the day (not a complaint 🙂 )
Everybody on the tour got to visit a winery they mentioned at the start of the day. We didn’t leave any of them without having purchased at least one bottle of wine, the start of a very decent wine collection me thinks.
Would recommend to everyone and anyone thinking of doing a tour of the region. If ever we are back in the area we will be booking onto another tour with Bubble Grape.

You can sit back and relax during your New Zealand wine tour in our luxurious new Mercedes Vans. We do the hard work so you can simply enjoy a fun-filled, “unforgetabubble” day of Marlborough taste sensations. You will learn so much about growing grapes, making wines, and which wines you like the best. We’ll provide you with a notebook and pen as well so you can take notes of your favourite wines and other things you’d like to remember.
We also provide a pick up and drop off service to your accommodation. This can also include pickups from Picton, which is ideal if you are on a cruise ship, or the Havelock village. If you are planning your cruise ship shore excursions, we can pick you up and drop you off in Picton. Please just let us know your cruise ship times and we can work your NZ wine tour around this.
Our tours are half day or full day.
There’s something for everyone!
