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. 'Cause we speak a little swedish it was okey, and the guide... More

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

We by coincidence discoveted this nice little place while running through TripAdvisor. Lots of signs on the way, which was great as even our Garmin had problems finding the place. We were so lucky as to arrive exactly when a small tour party came, and could therefore participate in the tour around the winery. Great history - the American dream... More

A perfect setting for a village wedding, this quaint winery was gracious to host our small tour! Anna, from Boston, led us throughout the winery explaining the history, technique, and niche wines that owner family is producing and, indeed, ready to bust out across international borders. For small and large gatherings, special events, wholesale, Manousakis is a MUST!

Warm, friendly, great conversation, beautiful scenery & oh yeah, the wine is awesome too... We did the tasting with the cheese plate--more than two could eat and tastings for 5 wines...struck the right balance of information and enjoyment. Definitely worth the trip & highly recommend!

We had a great visit to the Manousakis winery! They are in the middle of some construction right now, but when the construction is complete it will be a very nice complex. The current tasting area is rustic looking and really cute. The wines were delicious- we did the premium tasting and liked several of the whites and reds. There... More

Very beautiful location. Not a great distance from Chania. They are currently expanding but still very nice and friendly.
