This winery encourages visitors to bring a picnic. There is a cellar door with some lovely natural wines and you can sit in the shade and have a sandwich and a chat with the friendly staff. Well worth a stop.

For many years now, Moana Park has offered a great summer Festival. One can sit under the trees, under the provided tents or bake in the guaranteed Hawkes Bay sun! Wine is around $25 a bottle and free live music is provided. Lots seem to like having an opportunity to dance. Many choose to bring their own picnic baskets, and... More

Was a wonderful experience to listen to the free music on a hot summers day under the trees. Will be there again next year bring your own picnic, food available to buy. No BYO, lovely wine to purchase on site. A great day in Taradise

A very small but very welcoming vineyard. They had two staff on and were a little overwhelmed with lots of groups arriving but this didn't stop them from providing dedicated, engaging tasting sessions with each group. We sat at a lovely big wooden table and enjoyed tasting some very unique wines that really stood out from some of the other... More

Best wines in Hawkes Bay district. Went on a private wine tour (6 wineries) and this was the best. Run by student vignerons, very informative, casual, they didn't rush us through like the others and spent plenty of time with us. Also this was the only place that didn't try to blow wind up our backsides and assume we knew... More

Perfect wine experience on today's cycling trail. Wonderful welcome, personalised tasting amidst plane trees & cornfields - soil is resting pre-planting of vines. Sumptuous wines; for me, especially the 2013 chardonnay. What's more, the wines are carefully made to be non-allergenic. We were convinced! Thanks, Amber. You are an asset to Moana Winery. Cheers.

Amber was our Host for wine tasting at Moana Park, and she did a great job. She sat down with us and explained things clearly in between getting to know us and having a laugh. It was a very relaxing afternoon, tasting a range of great wines. It showed they had a great partnership with Bay tours and Charters, and... More

We visited Moana Park as part of a half day wine tour (with Vinces Wine Tour). This vineyard was my favourite although I enjoyed all we visited. Dan, the owner, lead the wine tasting and answered all our questions enthusiastically and interestingly. Great choice of wines to taste. Each had a great flavour although I am no expert. I liked...

We found this gem on our way to Puketapu for lunch. Such friendly knowledgeable staff who sat down with us and talked us through their selection.A bonus to find good wine without the additives. So refreshing after visiting some of the bigger wineries.
