Soljans Estate Winery was the highlight of our port stop in Auckland from the Island Princess. Tony was a great guide, making it fun while learning many interesting facts. Tony beams with pride about his 5 generation family business, while introducing his more than capable grandson. Jason provided the different wines for tasting. All top quality wines. Hence the 5 star review. Thanks, Tony!

Went to Soljans for a family and friends birthday gathering lunch. About 30 people in a private room with several round tables. We all had a great time. It was totally well managed by friendly very obliging staff and the food was excellent, all perfectly cooked and presented. Will use again.

Dear jandk514, Thank you for your 5 star review we do appreciate it. We do a lot of functions along the lines that you mentioned and having separate room options can be private as well which people appreciate. There is a art in managing functions like you mentioned and having friendly and obliging staff vital because they are all different depending on the occasion. We love the challenge however and love functions so having good reviews important. We look forward to your using our venue again. Kind Regards Tony

I regularly take my wine tour clients to Soljans for wine tasting, followed by lunch. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. The wines are excellent, plus they provide samples of their fantastic Tawny Port. The Bistro has a varied menu with fresh local produce and great coffee. Highly recommended!

We started with a tasting and we’re really happy with the quality, so much we’ve had a box sent back home. We were fortunate enough to have a look at the cellar with the winemaker where he gave out plenty of knowledge and it really sparked my interest. The restaurant was great with large portions of good old fashioned family cooking at a good price. We will return.

Dear M38004Q, I was very pleased to read your 5 star review and thank you for taking the time to post it. You said you were very happy with the quality of the wines you tasted, I was even more happy that you decided to have a case sent back home, that is the icing on the cake, I am sure you enjoyed it just as much at home as you did at the winery. Thank you and Regards Tony

Disappointing!!! Over from UK to see my family, visited here before, my son booked lunch for 11 of us. After mains we were asked if we'd like coffee we said we'd like a desert was told we couldn't have one as the kitchen closed at 2pm.
Not impressed.

Dear 26junes, I read and take note of all reviews and it disappoints me when things do not go right. As I am the owner I take responsibility and apologise for the less than acceptable level of service you received at our venue. We have discussed this and from that have changed how we handle issues like yours so hopefully we do not have any repeats. Regards Tony

My wife and I took a wine tasting tour provided by our cruise line. We visited 2 vineyards but the highlight was certainly our visit to Soljans Estate Winery. Our guide at the Winery was Tony Soljans. Incredibly informative. Humorous. It was very obvious he was proud of his Winery and his family. His grandson poured our tastings and explained the wines. Both my wife and I, who have been to innumerable wine tours and tastings, agreed this was the best.

Dear BigEaterSouthDakota, We very much enjoy having Cruise ship groups visit is and have a winery tour and tasting. I believe it is our job to make all visitors to Soljans very welcome and that they go away having a positive experience in visiting us. We are very proud of our winery and our families history and love sharing this with all visitors. I like your final comment that this was the best, I might just use that comment, thank you. Regards Tony

We went there for lunch had an excellent tasting experience before hand, the lady looking after us was knowledgeable able to provide good information was willing to go out of the way for example wanted to taste something she didn't have in the tasting room so she went to the restaurant and got a tasting glass full for me.

The restaurant was good, my wife had the Cesar Salad which she really enjoyed I had the unpronounceable Croatian Sausage which was also good. Service was friendly and altogether an enjoyable experience.

If you are in the area drop in if not for lunch a tasting we came away with 4 lovely bottles of wine.

Soljans winery are doing themed dinners and they are great. We have been to three of them including this one and it’s a great night out. The service is awesome and the food is 1st class. We have already booked for the next one and can’t wait. I would recommend these to everyone, and while you’re there you can pick up a cheeky bottle or two of your favourite drink.
