We made late plans and headed to this winery. The place was busy being a Easter sunday. We went on the tour and enjoyed all that was included from wine tasting , grape stomping and the lovely dance troupe which was amazing. Sure too visit again.

We attended a 70th birthday party here - private function. The room was large and airy with a generous dance floor. The food was excellent as was the range of wines. There were around 80 guests but there was plenty of space inside and the use of the outdoor area.

We celebrated a 90th birthday here, the service was good and staff attentive and friendly.

There is nothing wrong with Soljans Estate Winery, but nothing exceptional or unique to set it apart. Good selection of wines to taste and purchase. Easy access from the main highway. There is also a large cafeteria/restaurant next to the wine tasting.

Soljans is a family winery with some excellent wines for tasting at the cellar door (don't miss the tawny Port). I have been taking clients to Soljans for many years and highly recommed the cafe. Generous portions of fresh local food, and friendly service at a good price.
