This is just a quick post to talk about a really wonderful collection of wines that I discovered on a trip to Gozo a couple of weekends ago. My boyfriend had written an article about this Gozitan winery called Tal-Massar, and we popped over to the vineyards in Għarb 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) also gave us plenty of incredibly tasty nibbles to accompany the wine – including delicious homemade sundried tomato paste on bread, and the creamiest ġbejniet ever.
The highlight of the afternoon was certainly the wine – they have four absolutely beautiful wines (a white, a rosé, and two reds – one red is a really “deep” port-like wine). I’m clearly not very good at the descriptions of wine – but let’s just say that I thoroughly enjoyed them and have consumed copious amounts (both on the day of the wine-tasting, and on many of the following days).
I’d highly recommend a visit to the Tal-Massar vineyards next time you’re in Gozo (especially if you’re there with foreign friends), and you’ll leave full of wine and tranquillity. And while you’re still in Malta, head over to Farsons Direct for a couple of bottles of these delicious wines. Mmm.
(PS: this is not an advert, and I paid for the wine-tasting session – I was just really impressed by these wines. SO GOOD.)
