The setting and service is what you'd expect at many winery and restaurant venues, not spectacular or distinguishable from the rest. As a place you can rely on to provide reasonable quality in a nice setting, Soljans is ok.

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!
