First off let me just start by saying how absolutely wonderful the staff was, we came to Manousakis with our almost 2 year old daughter who decided to become very difficult while there, the staff was so kind to us and even made her a freshly squeezed lemonade made from the lemon trees right on the property which helped calm...

We were treated like family, had a great day and wanted to take the dog home with us. Anna Maria was amazing and very knowledgeable. The moan about the price is ridiculous and for the 9 wines, generously poured, it was top value...We will be coming back and if it was meant that I can have a job....Happy to help... More

We stopped here for a day on a cruise and did the Safari Adventures tour that stopped at the winery. Staff was friendly and the tour and wine tasting were fun. Plan ahead and order lunch (must be pre-arranged). The food was absolutely outstanding!

This winery pays attention to their wines and visitors a lot. They make you feel very welcome and the products are super good. The whites are interesting, rose good and the reds super! Even relatively inexpensive home delivery will be available. Highly recommend a visit there.

Dear Rodrigo S, we are very sorry that your visit to our winery did not meet up to your standards. I must make a few things clear for future visitors.

Having toured a few whisky distilleries at home, and a couple of breweries as well, I was looking forward to seeing a winery and adding that to the collection! Manousakis didn't disappoint- the history of the family and how the winery came to be is a great introduction, and although the tour is a little brief, it covers all the... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Manousakis Winery. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable. Can you hear the but? As much as we enjoyed the tour and LOVED the grounds, we didn't enjoy the wine. We're sure the wine is delicious, perhaps our taste buds were just off that particular day.

Alexandra M, Owner at Manousakis Winery, responded to this review

Yes! Wine is, in fact, a very personal matter. All of our taste buds react differently to different wines and that is why wine tastings are so fun and people usually go to more than just one winery. TripAdvisor is a forum to discuss your experience of a place and in cases such as wineries, not so much to rate... More

I live here in Crete, in the Chania district, but last week was my first visit to this exquisite place with some out of town visitors. I can't believe I haven't been before! Everything about this winery is perfect.....the location, the building, the ambiance, the flowers, the guides. But above all, the wines are superb. I will definitely be back,... More

We had a very nice time at the winery, which is so beautiful and cared after. I would just improve a couple of things, I found the winetasting experience was a bit too fast and as mentioned in another review guests should be given some sort of finger food to pair with wines as many aromas and scents of these...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're so happy you enjoyed yourself at our winery although your score confused us when we first saw this review! So that nobody is confused when reading this review, we do offer Cretan rusks during all of our tastings. More
