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.

Really enjoyed our wine tasting. Wines are excellent and our host made it a very enjoyable experience. If touring in the Hawke's Bay region don't miss this winery.

Had the pleasure of a tour of the winery & wine tasting at this exceptional winery. Sacha was extremely knowledgable, enthusiastic & made us appreciate the wines and the method of making the wines as much as he did! If you are in the area it is well worth the visit you won't be disappointed.

Great winery to visit. Great wine, fantastically friendly staff, and they have functions and music every once in a while. I live in Hawke's Bay now so I'm probably a bit jaded with all the winery selections, but this place is always one of my top choices to bring visitors to as they never disappoint with how well they take...

Make an effort to go here. This is a proper winery, not a corporate sell-out. The wine is really good, staff are knowledgeable and helpful, and the surroundings are as a winery should be - great views, ambiance, accessible, good parking and relaxing. Groups come through regularly so if you are solo or a couple/few call first to see when... More

We were looking for a place to picnic, and the locals directed us to Moana Park winery. We expected nothing, were happily surprised. A small winery where wines are crafted with a minimum of sulfite, Moana Park produces clean wines of a fresh taste. Lucky for us, we showed up during a lull on a busy Saturday and Laurent was...

We spent a lovely afternoon tasting and asking questions about these low allergen, multi award winning wines. We enjoyed it so much and were so impressed that we've sent ourselves a mixed case home to the UK!

Wine tasting was awesome and so very knowledgable! They were all gorgeously tasty! The sav was sublime - and less additives is very exciting to me!
