Tal Massar Winery - Wine Tasting Gozo

Gozo is Malta’s little sister, if you think about Malta as the rough, popular and ambitious older brother. Gozo is the cute underrated little sister with class and elegance. Gozo has a long history in Agriculture and Civilisation. Today I visited the Tal Massar Winery where during its development in 2006 a punic coin was found dating back to 2500 B.C. On this coin was stamped the image of a Goddess, Tanit. The Goddess of War & Fertility. During the Summer Feasts one might think Gozo is at war. Plattards and fireworks light up the night sky and their shockwave reverberates through the salty & humid air. The fertility of Gozo lays testament to its rolling hills, perched aquifers and clay rich soils. This has been exploited by numerous civilisations over millennia. In 2019 a Pheonician Galley was discovered 140 metres deep off the coast of Xlendi bay. Still largely intact, cargo and all! The cargo contained oil, honey and wine! Gozos most famous exports that have been celebrated since ancient times and are still adored today.
