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.

“Great people great wine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

I had an afternoon free in Napier so decided to go on a wine tour. Moana Park was the last winery and by far the best. The young guy who introduced us to the wines did it in a relaxed informal way with no snobbery. When I shared a bottle with friends back in Sydney they raved about the quality. I contacted the winery and they shipped a case over of mixed wines. Highly recomended on all fronts.

“Appreciation of wine making”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

If you really want to experience a small, knowledable, forward-thinking winery; this is the place. They use state of the art machines and take great care in making wine that is free of animal products and free of the sulphites that cause those horrible headaches (usually found in over-processed, cheap wines) Staff is passionate about their wines and it's process and are super friendly and down to earth. I say it should be #1 in things to do in Napier :)
