The family behind Tal-Massar Winery is lovely, they shared their story and were happy to answer all our questions. They even gave us recommendations and honest opinions of where to go and where to eat elsewhere in Malta which i... More

We booked the wine tasting tour at the same day and were very lucky that Anthony could show us around and teach us about the wines. He met us at the bus station and we had a nice walk in his small vineyard and after introduction we started tasting different wines. Each wine had a story and we could ask... More

Looking for things to do on our trip to Gozo, I came across Tal-Massar Winery on Trip Advisor and the reviews were outstanding. So we decided to go and it did not disappoint! We had an amazing experience. Anthony truly knew his wines and you could really feel his passion for wine. He explained the process of making it throughly... More

my partner and I stumbled across Tal-massar on trip advisor as we wanted to try some of the local gozitian wines. I was a bit sceptical of what the quality of the wines would be like as i most of the maltese wines i have had so far have only been average. We called Anthony on very late notice but... More

We visited the Tal-Massar Winery during our 5-day stay in Gozo and can say that it truly was one of the highlights of this stay. The wine (2 whites, 2 reds and a rosé) and the snacks (home-made bruschettas with sun-dried tomatoes, olives and goat cheese) were delicious and the scenery is beautiful. Anthony passionately and patiently answered all our... More

We spent the most fascinating afternoon going around the vineyard and winery with Anthony, the owner, who was so passionate about what he is doing and gave us much more of his time than we expected. We learnt so much and the wines were delicious, especially his new experiment - Gharb, the sweet red. Tony and Mary.

We know Marisa and Anthony very well. They are both very reliable and professional in their work. We had special guests at our home and wanted them to taste some unique wine. So we went for "Garb" and "San Mitri". All we can say is that this wine is truly incomparable and emotionally thrilling. It will surely provide a memorable... More

Although I have known Marisa for many years this was the first time we visited the winery as buyers and it might sound like a cliché to say that the service and wine far exceeded our expectations but saying anything less will be a lie. Often one does not appreciate one's own heritage and having grown up on Gozo I... More

The visit to the winery and his wine tasting session (together with Marisa’s excellent snacks) was a most enjoyable experience. The wines were so good that we purchased two bottles to take home with... More
