Amazing little vineyard, with some very tasty wines, which we visited during an afternoon wine tour from Napier. Best part of the wines were they are low in allergens, which is great for me & they will ship to Aus.

The wines are amazing, but best of all for me that they are low in allergens. The staff are helpful and give generous tastings.

We visited Moana Winery after reading Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Our guide was very informative and made our discovery of their wines an interesting adventure. We left with a number of bottles in hand👍🏽

As visitors from Texas, USA, we were seeking a good New Zealand winery to sample the native wines. The Moana Park Winery near Taradale, Hawkes Bay is excellent! Amber kindly spent over an hour discussing their wines and wines in general as she poured 9 different wines for us (4 whites, 4 reds and a dessert wine). She was very... More

We visited Moana Park on a wine tour and absolutely loved it! We had the opportunity to be served by the owner and winemaker Dan Barker. Both their wines and their hospitality are top notch! Their commitment to producing truly natural wine makes Moana Park a very unique winery. This is definitely a necessary stop if you're in the Napier... More

I visited Moana on a trip to NZ about 5 years ago and was shown round by the owner himself Dan Barker. It was a great experience then and I was really looking forward to another visit. In 5 years it has gone from strength to strength and they have taken on several extra staff. The experience was again superb... More

Go for a drive from Taradale Hawkes Bay, on Puketapau Rd. Hawkes Bay has one of its best winery's here. Talk to Dan, James or Kaylee for everything there is to know about the fabulous wine they are producing. Personal favourite is their Syrah. Pretty setting, pleasant easy drive from Napier or Hastings.

Moana Park is a small winery with a big heart. We were incredibly lucky to have had Dan, the owner of the business, to guide us through our tasting. We were told that normally we would have to book in advance otherwise. I would really have enjoyed a small tour of the winery and their wine making process, instead we... More
