We booked a tour with a guide, who picked us up at our hotel in a jeep (and brought us back after the wine tour). We drove around the mountains to see the grapes nad the valley - what a spectacular view! Our guide had an answer for all of our questions and knew all the perfect viewpoints. The tour... More

We registered on their website for a tour and you should probably do that in advance, since is quite busy. We also had a child with us with milk allergy so we requested a special menu and they answered immediately. There are signs on the road that guide you to the winery. The place is beautiful with many flowers. The... More

We already knew Manousakis' wines, but it was the first time we had the chance to visit the winery. It has a great experience with great hospitality too. They explained us everything about the wine production, maturation and on top we had the opportunity to visit their vineyards! At the end we did the wine tasting with the lunch menu... More

My friend I visited the winery on our last night in Chinia. This place is very quite with little visitors and the staff seems knowledgable about their product. The only downside for me was, I was hoping to see the grape trees on the same location, but because of the land not being suitable to grow grapes, they've the grapes... More

We had lunch, were on the tour of the winery and tasted five of their wines, all of which was just amazing and way beyond our expectations. And this was for 6 EUR / person for the winetasting and tour! The tour guide was very good and enthusiastic and clearly had a lot of knowledge about how to make wine.... More

My family of five enjoyed a great tour and wine tasting today at Manousakis. The owner actually gave us the tour and oversaw the tasting, speaking about the background of each of the wines--enough for people who really like wine to enjoy, but not so much that the people who were there for the tour and sights got bored. The... More

We spent the afternoon at the winery learning about the winery and the different wines available from Manousakis. The tour was informative and the wines were unique and quite tasty. Great tour with great hosts - even took a couple bottles home.

We booked a wine tasting tour after reading good reviews on the winery. Let me tell you that we were not disappointed!! Pavlos, the tour guide was amazing! He knew how to bring life to a fantastic tour! We first visited the facilities then did a tasting of 9 wines. We loved each and every wine we tried. After the... More
