Spent a lovely evening with a small group of people, in the company of Anthony whose passion for his vineyard and his wines is highly infectious. Informative, tasty (the Gozitan anchovy thing was delish!) and highly enjoyable - you must do it!

What a delightful evening spent at the vin yard, tasting delicious wines and trying some excellent home made Maltese nibbles. Anthony's knowledge and passion for his vines and wines was very apparent and I certainly learnt a lot. All 4 wines were delicious and I'm only sorry we were flying home as I would have bought cases of the nectar.... More

This was our second wine tasting with Anthony and lovely to meet his wife Marisa. The mix of people from many different countries was great and a very convivial evening was had by all. Looking forward to the Garb that we brought back with us. Lovely wine with some delicious finger food. Highly recommended.

We tried rose, white and red wines; hints of fruit and watermelons, aromas of peaches and deep after tastes were accompanied by home-made sun-dried tomato pesto on Maltese bread, smoked Maltese sausages and sheep’s cheese. An exquisite way to unwind in the afternoon. Read my full review: http://www.unexpectedtraveller.com/Blog/wine-tasting-gozo/

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I popped over to the vineyards in Għarb while in Gozo for a wine-tasting session. The weather was glorious, and the setting was just perfect. After a short informal presentation about the process of wine-making, the wine-tasting “proper” started, with plenty of more information being provided. The lovely couple (who are sweetness itself)... More

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
