One of the oldest vineyards in Kerikeri just 10 minutes from downtown Kerikeri, Soland & James is a small, family owned and operated vineyard where Bruce and second-generation winegrower Andrea tend the vines by hand to produce a range of fantastic wines. Visitors are welcome to stop by the rustic cellar door to try the wines and meet Molly the loveable labrador, the crazy chickens and the Jenny Craig the 14th.
We are passionate about our wines and believe that you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
The cellar door is super cute and very informal. Andrea or Bruce will be there to share their knowledge (and a few stories) as they guide through tastings or take you on a vineyard wander. Molly the vineyard dog is a loveable lab and will be hoping for a pat as soon as you arrive, so give us a call (021 263 1393) if you'd prefer not to meet her.
We are open between 11:00am - 8:00pm throughout the summer (October to May)
Wine tastings are hosted in the old barn
We are happy to take you for a bit of a wander through the vineyard and introduce you to the vines.
