Rotalite was excited to hold its first West Auckland Wine Tour on Saturday 30th April 2016. The tour consisted of visits to four prominent West Auckland Vineyards – Westbrook, Soljans, Coopers Creek and Matua. We enjoyed exquisite food at Soljans at lunch time.

Money from this Fundraiser went to sponsor two kids supported by Variety through their Variety Kiwi Kid Sponsorship as well as other West Auckland community projects.

Thank you to all the Vineyards that allowed us to visit. In particular Tony Soljan from Soljans Vineyard where we had an extended tour of the wine making facility and heard about Tony’s family history of winemaking in West Auckland, dating back to the 1930s.

We would also like to thank Ritchies Coachlines for helping with the buses on the day!
