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.

We visited Moana Park and were really impressed with their allergy free wines, no sulphites, or animal products used. They provide a one on one tasting for each group and are very knowledgeable. Every wine we tried we loved . Go there and have a tasting really worth while and the people are passionate about their product

Visited Moana Park as part of a half day tour (with Prinsys). This place was definitely the clear highlight for me (and all the others were very good). Having Dan lead the tasting and answer questions enthusiastically and interestingly was certainly the difference between this and other wineries... though the range of wines on offer and generous sample sizes helped!...

After spending the afternoon at two huge wineries (Mission Estate and Church Road), this boutique winery was a refreshing change and a great way to wind down a long day. We got there almost near to closing but the staff present seemed more than happy to continue chatting with us throughout the tasting. This winery has got some very tasty... More
