Visited Tal-Massar vineyard with a group of 7 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of an informative talk, tasting of traditional Gozitan finger food, and the all important tasting of their wonderfully unique wines. Anthony and Marisa could not have been more attentive hosts, poor Anthony was subject to a barrage of questions from our group who... More

We had a wonderful Saturday evening with Anthony and Marisa, learning all about their unique method of cultivation and the care with which they look after their vines. Anthony is extremely knowledgable about every element of wine making and took care to answer our many questions! It was fantastic to meet these charming owners rather than a hired guide, a... More

This is a very personal wine tasting session where you will learn lots about the history of Maltese wines and of this boutique winery in particular. The owner Anthony is very passionate about his winery and talks you through the whole process of his wine making. The setting is lovely; after giving extensive information about his winery, the soil and... More

We were spectacularly disorganised during a recent week in Gozo and didn't book ahead to visit the vineyard. They very kindly accommodated just us on a Friday and we were very impressed with the wine. We were staying at the Kempinski in Gozo and tours can be arranged through the hotel. To visit independently however it is only about a... More

What a great experience. Totally exceeded our expectations. Anthony shared his passion and the journey taken to establish this fine vineyard on the slopes of a valley overlooking the sea near Gharb. I could almost repeat their story word for word, but then I'd spoil some of the enjoyment of the visit for you. Suffice to say I've experienced a... More

Fancy finding out what it's like to build a winery from the ground up - well here's your chance to find out for an incredibly reasonable price. The owner talked us through his philosophy and give you a personal and intriguing insight into a world you may never have even thought about before. The wines were beautiful and the setting... More

WOW, what can we say! We have just been to Tal-Massar Winery in Xaghra and had the experience of a lifetime. The most fabulous vineyard ever. Anyone visiting Malta/Gozo should pay them a visit. Having been wine and champagne tasting in South Africa before, this was something extraordinary. Forget plonk, this is super smooth, well tended and completely loved wine.... More

What a beautiful way to spend an evening! My Dad, my boyfriend and I booked this wine tasting on a whim and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Anthony is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about both Gozo and his wine. He talked at length about the soil, climate and processes and went into great detail without losing the rapt attention... More
