It is always good to read reviews and I thank you for taking the time to do so. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the Taste a Trio of Reds, this is very popular and a great way for guests to try a number of wines over their meal. Very glad you enjoyed the Soljan experience.
Regards

Tony

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We stopped for a spur of the moment lunch here and were pleasantly surprised. The setting was beautiful - we looked out into the gardens and vines - and the service was good. The food was nice and as expected from a vineyard the wine selection was also good.Good gift selection too.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Took the family here for a birthday lunch celebration. Food was fantastic and wine was great. Only down side was the noise. Needs some soft furnishings to absorb the noise of people talking. Will certainly be going back.

“Pleasant atmosphere and food”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

I've had lunch here numerous times, and it's a very nice setting. The wine is also good, however, I always feel like there's something missing from the food.
