Manousakis Winery- Assyrtiko- Dry White Wine

Over the millennia the Lefka Ori Mountains of Western Crete have absorbed the quiet life cycle for thousands of the island’s native flora. When you walk these mountains in the spring it takes you on a sensory adventure filled with the scents of rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender, and chamomile. In the fall, they descend back to the soil and are absorbed and thus the quiet life cycle continues. 

The winery is the realization of Ted Manousakis' dream.  It began in 1984, when the hills around the village of Vatolakkos were still untouched by civilization and the wild herbs of Crete were abundant and fragrant. The philosophy at the Manousakis Winery is simple they believe in carefully and organically cultivating their vines to absorb this scent-filled terroir. This allows the Flavors of the grapes combine with the herbs for an incomparable taste. Each bottle of their Wine captures the character of this island, and the slopes of the Lefka Ori.
