A truly exceptional & enjoyable experience... Anthony is a star!!! Knowledgeable, passionate and very charismatic. We got to discover his great wines and learn about the details they go through to produce quality wines. Thank you very much and keep up the good work.

Had a fantastic time here. Definitely worth a visit. Not a wine drinker but the wine was gorgeous. He made us feel at home, not your ordinary experience. Very nice guy. Nibbles were lovely too. Looking to get bottles sent over to Ireland 😊😊

We are staying in a 5 star resort in Gozo but the highlight of our trip has been a fabulously personalised wine tour of a local vineyard making the most gorgeous award-winning wines. Marisa escorted us from our hotel to the vineyard, and her husband Anthony told us of the evolution of their agroturismo industry from the early days where... More

Fascinating tour of family-run vineyard, culminating in a tasting of award-winning local wines that delight the tastebuds. Anthony gives you a wonderful insight into the history and science behind the vineyard. And Marissa's sundried tomato pesto is something special. Not to be missed.

We happened upon this lovely tour on a list of activities at the Kemplinski resort, and it was a fabulous find. From the moment the smiling, friendly Marisa picked us up at our hotel, till our merry drop off an hour and a half later it was just great. Anthony, the owner of the vinyard, gives an interesting, insightful and... More

Anthony is a wonderful host who explains the craft of wine making with passion and humour in a way that the non wine expert can easily understand. As for the wine it is some of the best I have ever tasted and Marissa's food is worth visiting just... More

We visted the vineyard on the last day of our holiday and wished we'd come sooner so we could have stocked up on wine for the week! Anthony was a great host and very passionate and knowledgeable about making great wine (which he is very successful at!). We had a lovely afternoon with some tasty food also, it was more... More

A visit to Tal-Massar Winery is a must when you visit Gozo. The wines are really incredibly crafted, the setting is stunning and Anthony is not only extremely knowledgeable but a gracious host as is his lovely wife Marisa. I so look forward to our next visit and to enjoy Anthony's wine and, of course Marisa's great delicacies. The bottles... More

What a lovely time we had during a vineyard tour and tasting at Tal-Massar Winery! Anthony's passion for wine making only equals his enthusiasm for sharing his fascinating knowledge. Part Gozo history lesson, part viticulture, mixed with equal parts of warm hospitality and humor, makes for a most interesting tour. Of course, that is only the beginning, as the fun... More
