A very nice place. The story of the winery was interesting and the tour was energetic. The light lunch was excellent quality. Wines were nice, we even ordered wines to home. They also provided a separate lunch for smaller kids.

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.
