We really enjoyed our tour and tasting at this winery. Our guide, Wesley, was very informative and an outstanding host. The wine was also quite lovely. We highly recommend visiting this place if you are visiting Chania.

A little off the beaten path, but fully worth the trip. The winery is welcoming and mixes old world charm with an updated chic design. We attended the 10am tour which became a private tour by default. By comparison, the noon tour had about ten...More

We enjoyed Manousakis so much last year that we revisited. Staff are friendly, the winery tour is fairly informative and the more expensive wines, many of which are based on Rhone varietals, are very good. At 14 Euro, Nostos Alexandra's can rival a Chateauneuf du...More

Great people, good wines, nice food and a very nice establishment. Vineyard not at this location, but the utterly friendly, welcoming and caring staff makes up for that. We had the 'standard' tasting of 5 wines for €8,-, which is very fair. You get a...More

Thank you for your review! Our wines used to be available in Chicago, they might still have some at a restaurant called Taxim!

We found it accidentally and drove in. Staff was very friendly. Winery is quite young but they are doing everything right. Some interesting tasting wines, we took some home for further investigation :)
