We booked the simple 6 wine tasting session and hoped to have a good morning. We actually had a brilliant half day! A lovely car journey, very easy to navigate, with excellent signage, takes you through beautiful scenery and to a lovely Cretan home, where the wine tasting takes place. We had a fabulous host who took us around the... More

A friend recommended that we visit Manousakis Winery and we are very grateful. We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon sampling their amazing organic wines, all of which offered something different. It isn't just the wine though that makes this such a special experience. As your time at the winery passes, the story of the family unfolds and, through the tour,... More

What fun. Really enjoyed visiting this winery. The scenery was beautiful. The winery is small and quaint. Our tour guide Anna was very knowledgeable about the wine making process and history of the winery. We enjoyed several glasses of wine and even bought some to take with us. Delicious! Reserve ahead of time.

I visit this winery prety often, to buy wines for my restaurant. The atmosphere there is amazing, all the staff is proffessional and helpfull. They always greet you with a hearty smile. In the gardens of the winery you can also see the 1000 years old olive tree. This place emit a peacefull, yet strong aura that makes you feel... More

After following the best sign posts in Crete (honestly - Cretan road signage is terrible!) we came after a long and winding road to the Nostos Winery. Unfortunately there is some construction going on to create a new tasting room, so the entry is a bit foreboding but do press on - it's worth it. The old farm house visitor... More

The winery is absolutely beautiful, with gorgeous flowers, fruit trees, and vines everywhere. The woman who ran the tasting was funny, welcoming, and generous with both wine and great stories. The wines and olive oil (and the cheese plate) are delicious. Finally, an anecdote in evidence of their friendliness: we'd cabbed it there from Chania (20 euros) and decided to... More

Beautiful place, and very good guide we had there :) All the others in the same guided tour were Norwegians, and the guide asked us if it was okay that he speaks swedish, and then if we had any questions he could of course explain us in english.

We got an interesting tour of the winery, presenter by a very charmig guide, Laureen. The testing of the wines that followed reveiled some real gems of products. Go there, taste the wines and buy some to take home. You will not be disapponted.

The square on which the bus dropped me off reminded me a bit of scenes of Peter Bogdanovich's movie "The Last Picture Show", which is set in a small barren Texas town in the 1950s. However, when you arrive at Manousakis' winery, things are very different: an old nicely restored farm building decorated with flowers with a lovely terrace to... More
