Our philosophy at Nostos is that fine wine is first produced in the vineyard, and then manifests itself in the winery through artisan and handcraft methods of winemaking. While taking extreme care in managing the vineyards for yields of the highest possible quality, the philosophy of the winery is for a gentle, minimalist approach to the winemaking process. Under the guidance of chief project director and winemaker, Kostis Galanis, the Manousakis Winery’s commitment to quality continues to aspire to becoming a premier producer of wine globally.
Vinification currently takes place for the most part in double-hulled stainless-steel tanks under controlled temperatures. However, Kostis’ experimentation with oak fermenters has yielded very positive results and future vinifications for all red wines at the winery will for the most part take place in small oak vats. The Roussanne variety is fermented and aged in small oak barrels. Fermentation is separated by lot and blending is carried out after fermentation and/or ageing. Our red wines also age in oak barrels for ten months.


Our visitors start their tour from the gardens of the traditional family home of the Manousakis family and continue to the production premises where they can learn details on the wine making process, they continue and visit the wine cellars and the bottling facilities and the return to the tasting area to enjoy a wine tasting. Visitors can also enjoy Cretan meze from our in-house restaurant with an a la carte menu.
