Interesting visit to Manoukis Winery set in beautiful location. The guided tour of the winery was interesting and informative, followed by a wine tasting of their delicious wines and cheese platter. Great way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Awesome winery with wonderful atmosphere. Love this place and their wines. Buy as many wines you can from the winery, very good prices. Try also Terrior (their own Olive oil and the wild sea salt.
