    A must see in the Aegean!
    Terrific view and excellent organic wine!We went twice and enjoyed different plates. The "kotsi" plate was delicious! Tourists usually appreciate Santorini sunset but this one is even more special because it's not touristic at all. Originally made by Mr.George Manalis and his family.He used to be a local Fisherman and a builder. Until he went on this piece of land and envisioned a winery, just because "life is a conquest" as he told us. Every night he shows his guests the procedure of wine making through photos of the production. In order to protect the plants from insects, he pays 7000e to workers who "feed" the land with peas plants and make the insects go away(a pesticide costs only 500e but guess what you will be drinking in your wine?!) Now I've read that some people didn't really like the food or the first impression welcome. 🤔 In a place like this,on an island of 200 residents,completely left in their destiny by the Greek government (but taxed the same as Mykonos or Santorini), I don't expect the attitude of a 5 star resort. I appreciate the authentic attitude and natural kindness of the local people (nevertheless the waiters spoke both English and French). So even if you are just sailing around the Greek islands,make sure you take a taxi or the local bus to enjoy the sunset at this winery. 🍷 🥂 🍷 🥂 OH! And don't forget to taste the "liosato",a red sweet wine as a desert!

    Great wine, amazing views, mediocre food
    The sunset views here are an absolute must-see if you visit Sikinos. The wine is also excellent, I tried all three varieties, had a glass of red with dinner and bought a bottle of white (reasonably priced at €10.50) to take away. What lets is down is the food. My starter was fine, as was the dessert, but the main was mediocre - lamb shank with potatoes, the potatoes were undercooked and there was no sauce or much seasoning to give it any flavour. Such a shame when it could easily be the best restaurant on the island!

    Stunning views but some room for improvement
    It’s clear a lot of time and love has gone into building this winery. The decor inside and out is very stylish. We visited as part of an organised tour, wine tasting with lunch. The food was beautiful. Unfortunately during the wine tasting we were provided with no information about what we were tasting, how or when it was produced. If these aspects were addressed this place has real potential!

Good initiative for Sikinos to put it again on the map as wine growing area, nice setting for a drink/dinner at sunset. Unfortunately that’s it.
We mailed ahead to visit the winery and reserve a table: no reply.
One is offered free sips of the basic white, rose and red wine. Really below standard: flat white, rose OK if you like it, red harsh and even bitter. We had called ahead to taste the Mavrotragano but we’re now told this was not possible. Only by the bottle at 40€ while all others are also offered by the glass.
So we moved to the lower balcony restaurant and ordered appetizers with a glass of white and rose: basic salad and chewy tomatokeftedes. And many dishes on the menu were not available “today”. Just to say that we even didn’t care to order main dishes and left quite disappointed by the quality of wine, food and spirit of the people.
Let’s hope they are willing to make an effort and become a plus for the island.

We had a lovely evening at this fabulous winery - completely unexpected on such a small island. The location is spectacular for watching the sunset. Wine was delicious and food good. You can go and eat or just have a glass of wine here - but either way it’s a beautiful place!
Thanks so much for a fabulous evening and good luck with your venture!
Totally recommend a visit!

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Sikinos! The view is amazing for sunset and the winery is really great! However the food and the service were average! Our main courses took very long and they didn’t really taste that good! The first courses were good! Going for a wine is a must!

This is probably a bit unfair but ask around before you go. This is a winery and a restaurant and was advertised as open from the port a few miles away. We were ready for lunch and an experience as the bus dropped us off only to find that the restaurant was not open as advertised. We luckily got away just in time to catch the bus back on its return journey as we would have had to wait 3 hours for the next one or walk back to town on an empty stomach. Welcome to Greece.

Amazing location, good wine and fair prices. There is also a restaurant and the food we had was the best of the island. What else?

One of the most wonderful places. Very simple, old school, wonderful scenery, feels on top of the world. Whether in couple, with friends, solo, or with your dog (as I was :-) it is a wonderful place to watch the sunset and the Manalis family who runs it will become your friends. Highly recommend
