This was a wine tour with a difference. Anthony is passionate about his vines and his wines. We learned a lot of really interesting and occasionally obscure facts before sitting down to sample the Gozitan food and wines. Our experience til then had not been very positive with Maltese wines, but these were different. I especially loved the red Garb, and bought three bottles. My husband and daughter were particularly impressed with one of the whites. There is no pressure at all to buy the wines. We went to Anthony's winery near our farmhouse in Xaghra and he showed us all his equipment and explained the process of testing through bottling the wines. Best of all, we went into the wine cooler. It was the first and only time in my two weeks on Malta that I was not too hot! I hope that these wines will one day be available in Maltese restaurants to replace the frequent plonk available.

Visiting Anthony and Marissa in the Tal-Massar Winery was a really excellent way to spend an early summer evening. Starting off with a very funny as well as informative tour around the family vineyard (make sure you are there from the beginning because Anthony is full of knowledge not only about wine making but also about the history of Gozo) it then progresses into the actual tasting session. The wines were lovely and so were the little traditional nibbles and together it gave a beautiful flavour of Gozo.
I would highly recommend going there!

We booked this visit on recommendation from our villa owner. We were welcomed by Anthony the vineyard owner who was really friendly and told us about the history of their family vineyard. After the tour we sat round a large table on his terrace with wonderful views and sampling his precious produce accompanied by local cheeses and tomato paste all fabulous! We were made to feel like his own family and there was no rush to leave. We purchased wine but there was certainly no pressure to do so.
Would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Gozo.

My very frist wine tour in Malta. I remember someone suggested me Tal-Massar and it was great! The owners are friendly, very knowledgeable and the scenario couldn´t be better. And the most important: the wines are very good!
