Called as part of a tour with Odyssey Tours (recommend them) - not our first visit to Moana but interesting - shown around the winery and tasted several wines that were very enjoyable. Settled on one and had it while we had a picnic lunch. Very friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit

Your only dilemma will be which wines to buy. The knowledgable server gave great explanations of the 8 wines she served us, and this is the only winery I've ever been to that had a box of toys to keep our granddaughter occupied so we could enjoy the wine tasting experience. Two thumbs up and free on top of it.

An add on to our tour of the region and I had not historically rated special needs wine (a family term of endearment). Tasting was delicious, host hilarious. Bought wine and the port which was epic. Sipping it as I write this undeservedly short review. Chastising myself for not buying two bottles!!!

Brought my parents to the winery during a road trip. The lady at the wine cellar gave excellent customer service, unbelievably friendly and informative without bogging you down with too much jargon. The wines were all delicious, and we left with three bottles!

This vineyard does not use the usual preservatives in the wine ( such as Sulphites ) and it shows, such clear flavours, red or white. But if you get to the taste the tawny port, then you are really lucky ! Thank you to Hooters Vintage and Classic Car Hire, for you taking me in such an awesome car, and... More

We visited this place because of the great TA reviews, and we were not disappointed! When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and started our wine tasting. The host was absolutely awesome. He was so friendly and you could clearly feel his passion for the wines. He was honest and made up for excellent conversation. Their wines were different and... More
