This estate offers an experience with a difference where our guests will be in touch with nature and tradition, enjoying typical foods, wines and liqueurs with a touch of the Mediterranean sunshine.At Ta’ Mena we produce typical Gozitan products, making use of traditional recipes which were passed over to us by our forefathers. These include the very popular Sun- dried Sweet Tomato Paste (Kunserva Helwa), Pickled Onions, Olives in Oil, Wild Capers in Vinegar, Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, various liqueurs and dessert wines and Gozo Peppered Cheese-lets amongst others.We at Ta’ Mena Estate grow our own grapes to produce great wines with a particular Gozitan character. We are proud that ten of our blends have been certified as GOZO D.O.K. Wines (Certified Denomination of Origin) which is the highest wine certification for Maltese wines. We also have two I.G.T. wines which certify that they have been produced from Gozo grown grapes.Therefore when you are visiting Gozo come and visit us at Ta’ Mena Estate for free wine and food tastings. We promise that you will not be disappointed!

“Excellent experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The wine tour was excellent! Very authentic experience and the tour guide who is the head of the estate is extremely passionate and knowledgeable. The tour started around the estate, where you see lots of olive trees and vineyards and then ends at a banquet table for tasting of various classic gozitan food and wines. Excellent bang for your buck and truly a worth it visit if you are in Gozo.

“An evening of hospitality and Gozitan warmth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was a truly inspirational evening. Three hours of the most amazing insights into life in a Gozo agri-farm. Extremely good value for money. We visited the vineyard, learnt how to make olive oil, tasted five types of wine and sampled delicious homemade delicacies. No pressure to buy anything but there was a wonderful shop selling all the products made on this amazing estate which also had a farm animal area. Well done and thank you to Joseph and his family for sharing these aspects of Gozitan life.

Thank you very much for your review of our estate and what we offer to our guests. We are always trying to promote what is really Gozitan - the traditions and delicacies that we inherited from our forefathers. We look forward to welcoming you again in our estate to experience more of our simple Gozitan life through new attractions that we intend to introduce for next year.

“Beautiful experience in Gozo island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We arrived later than the time we've informed to the estate due to the delay of the bus but they kindly allowed to visit freely in the vineyard. It was rather hard to walk up to the higher part of the hill but the scenery from there was fascinating. Vineyard itself was also interesting, seeing the animals such as goats, gooses etc... working.
Wines, olives and tomato paste were available for tasting and they were all delicious!
I'd love to go back again in near future.

Thank you for your comments. Yes I know it is quite hard to walk all the way up the estate. It can be a very good exercise. We have in mind to introduce some sort of ecological transport like electric cars or ponies to go around the estate. Hopefully it will be next year.

Hope to see you again in the near future.
