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

Visit to this winery was proposed by our host in Napier and for a good reason as we noticed now after our visit. Feeling was relaxed, atmosphere good and presentation professional but easy going. We liked several of the tasted wines, only had filled up stocks a couple of days back and so it was pity that we couldn't leave with some bottles. Warmly recommended!

We sat at a picnic bench and enjoyed some great wine. Very casual and relaxed. One of the best wine tasting experiences yet! Walked away with a few bottles!

i have heard from the trip advisory this place was a place to visit.
my partner and son popped in for look.

the staff was so helpful,not pushy,gave us time to enjoy the flavors of wines,the atmosphere was relaxing.
the staff actually asked for a teenager advise on wines,he really enjoyed the relaxation as well.

I've visited Moana Park several times over the past couple of years and found the experience consistently good. The wines are consistently sound and some are very good. The staff are helpful and not pushy. It's a pleasant setting and worth a visit for a wine tasting or for one of their special events. An added plus with vegans in the family is the vegetarian society tick. I was particularly impressed one visit to introduce our our vegan son and partner to the winery to be given a full tasting outside from the assistant winemaker.

We had a great tasting experience at Moana Park - very informative, and the wines were outstanding. I'll be looking for this brand in the future, especially the Chardonnay and Merlot Malbec!
