Lovely afternoon being explained the wine culture, how they came to grow these particular grapes, and of course the actual tastings, lovely wines, only wish we could have bought more... More

Can't recommend this enough. Anthony and Marisa are lovely. They are really passionate and knowledgable about their wine and it was s very reasonably priced and fun way to spend an afternoon/evening. The taxi they recommend is very well priced too.

We visited with a group of friends on a warm spring afternoon. After giving us a tour of the vineyard, Anthony and Marisa talked passionately about what they were trying to create. The wines are very good and will be a valued addition to my cellar. Garb will be a hit with my desserts.... it's unique and manages to make... More

Tal-Massar Winery is a definite must do when visiting Gozo. Anthony and Marisa were excellent hosts and the quality of wine and local delicacies was superb! An amazing experience that I would highly recommend and we'll definitely be back soon.

With a welcome as warm as the day we visited, Tal-Massar winery did not disappoint. We were picked up and led to this beautiful vineyard, where Anthony explained all there was to know about their wines. After, we sampled a few of their wines (Garb being my personal favourite) and even nibbled on traditional appetizers. Both Marisa and Anthony are... More

Went as a large group of friends. We were very late owing to traffic but this didn't faze owners Marisa and Anthony. They welcomed us as if we were family, explained A LOT about how the winery got started ten years ago, their techniques, vines, and so on. Then we tasted all the wines, all of which were different and... More

We all had a super time at the wine tasting. We went on it on a bit of a whim, not really having any expectations, and we were really pleasantly surprised. I will definitely be recommending it to friends and guests. I wish the owners all the very best!

Of course, not every development inavitably leads to an improvement but what happened on the field of winemaking during the last ten or twenty years in Malta definitely did. Not only the great producers Marsovin and Delicata improved the quality of their product massively, even more interesting is what happens in the small family run wineries that have emerged on...
