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 tour the vineyard.
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 lovable labrador and will be hoping for a belly rub as soon as you arrive, but 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.
