Full Day “Winemaker’s Tour”

Full Day “Winemaker’s Tour”

$185 per person

The Special Reserve Wine Tour is much like the Sauvignon Blanc Blended Wine Tour however this is a full day Marlborough wine tour. More places, more wine. If you want to experience a wider range of wineries and get a bigger picture of the Marlborough region, this is the wine tour for you.

This wine tour will take you to a range of both the small and bigger wineries, and highlight what they strive to achieve with their wines. All the wineries are different and make their own styles. Find out what makes each winery stand out on its own.

In the middle of this tour we stop for lunch at a winery restaurant or cafe. We all need food when tasting wines all day. Food is at your own expense on this tour. Food prices range from between $20 – $30 per main for a restaurant meal.

Other than wines you could also go to a Brewery or Gin tasting. Most cellar doors have an offering of cheese and olive oils for purchase.

Great company, excellent experience! This was such a great experience and Graham, our guide was just excellent! He was super friendly and really knowledgeable which made the day great! I highly recommend using Bubbly Grape for a full day of wine tasting in Blenheim. Brisbane, Australia

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. James L, Christchurch, New Zealand
