Owner description: Moana Park is a highly awarded boutique winery in Hawke's Bay with a focus on low allergen, natural winemaking. The 100% New Zealand, family-owned winery is situated 5km from Taradale, drawing fruit from prime vineyards including Gimblett Road and Dartmoor Valley. The cellar door team aim to provide a unique, casual experience with a focus on spreading their passion for great wine - come and enjoy a relaxed tasting in the valley surrounds without all the pomp. Moana Park's cellar door is open daily for wine tastings, BYO picnics functions and events. We hold special products at cellar door not available anywhere else - our 12 Year Colheita Port has just been released in time for Christmas - delicious.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access

A small vineyard that does cellar door tasting a little differently. Small groups/couples are sat down with a staff member to taste and understand 6-8 wines. Very interesting and educational. This is at no charge, but the wines are a little more expensive than some other Hawkes Bay cellar doors.

Of the several wineries we visited in November/December, Moana Park provided our favourite wine tasting experience in the Napier/Hastings area. A small boutique winery making limited quantities of excellent wines. We had a tour (free) around the winery and then an informal tasting sitting outside in the sunshine, with Kaylea, one of the owners, who was happy to share her knowledge of their wines. All wines were brilliant. We don't usually like Viognier or Pinot Gris, but theirs is lovely stuff.
By all means visit Mission Winery for its history and superb setting, but Moana Park is a definite must-do.

For a chance to talk to the Winemaker this is the place to go, a small operation but they love to share their interest and knowledge with you.
