The Greek varieties Malagouzia, Assyrtiko, Moschomavro, Limnio and Agiorgitiko come into the picture to accompany cosmopolitan varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and travelling through time with the aroma and flavour of wine became magical. The whole philosophy, culture, love and the experience of winemaking that they acquire prompted them to establish their own wine company MANOLESAKIS ESTATE in 1999. Watching their dreams become true, they never stop experimenting with new things and have equip the winery with the latest technological machinery in order to have the best result.
