Enjoy the enchanting and serene atmosphere on a tour of Manousakis Winery, set amid rolling hills dotted scented with rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender, and camomile. The winery, having first come to fruition in 1993, spans over 10 hectares (25 acres) of land that bears grapes from the sandy soil and Mediterranean climate. Admire the quintessentially white Greek country house matched with modern structures. Tour the old and new wineries, the stunning vineyard, and the on-site art exhibition held in the old family home. Learn about the wine-making process and sample different wines produced on site. If you've worked up an appetite, you can enjoy a full lunch.

  • I absolutely, loved the wine tasting and tour of the winery! Our guide gave us a good overview of winery history and education on wine tasting. We had a light lunch and tasting of 5 wines for an affor...  more »
  • During a stay in Crete is a shame not to visit also the hinterland with its beautiful mountains and countryside. The winery Manousakis is a great place where you can find something authentic just 30 minutes drive from Chania. The staff is very friendly and the wines are great. The countryside is very beautiful ... the ideal to forget the hustle of the beaches.

  • We spent a great day touring the winery and cooking (and drinking and eating) at the Manousakis winery. They were so friendly and welcoming (of course--it's Crete!), and we enjoyed ourselves immensely...  more »
  • Great experience. Tasted a lot of different wines and learned a lot on the tour of the winery. Lunch was okay, but the wine was the main purpose of the visit and that was great.
  • Very "compact" easy to understand tour of the winery and wine making in general. Good wines and lunch. Very nice place and surroundings.
  • Hands-down the best wine tour I have ever been on. The tour guide kept apologizing for his English, which made us laugh because it was perfect. We learned a lot about how wine is made. There is also so much history on the winery grounds that involves WWII and a 1200 year old olive tree. When we go back to Crete, we will be going back here. Did I mention the wines are delicious??
  • Great tour of the winery by a friendly and funny half Greek, half Canadian tour guide. We booked the light lunch which was really good. We were offered generous tasting portions of five delicious wines and another glass of wine of our choice. But... If you buy wine as you should!, ask for a plastic bag as the paper bag breaks pretty easily :(
  • Very educational and exciting tour of the winery followed by great wine and food. Highly recommended!
