Our latest wine tour with John of NZWINEPRO, finished with a visit to Soljans. The young dark haired lady behind the counter was welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. The wines were some of the nicest we had tried all day, while also being the least expensive. This was the winery we purchased the most from, of all the wineries we visited.

We stopped in for a wine tasting here and were very impressed. The lady who served us was lovely, very knowledgable and friendly. The wine is delicious- we bought several! Only negative was the music playing over the speakers- some guitar solo music- not very inviting at all!

Took our daughter and family here for a birthday treat. Very nice environment and decor. A limited menu, but great tasting food and really good wines. Grandchildren were catered for with no hassles and an outdoor area/cabin for them to play. Excellent staff and great service. Lots of gifts available for purchase at reasonable price. Would definitely come again

Walked in off the street and were promptly offered six wines to taste. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. I thought the wines were varied and reasonably priced. Bought a lovely sparkling muscat, although there really was no pressure to buy anything at all.
