After feedback from recent guests I am offering two slightly altered wine tasting experiences. Basically some people like more food within the experience. I also get several vegetarian guests. Therefore I have decided to offer two versions of my experience. For our Tuesday session I welcome everyone with a cocktail made with a local sparkling wine and liqueur. The evening will follow with the tasting of another 5 local Maltese wines complimented with a 4-course dinner including meat and/or fish. For the Thursday session the wine tasting includes 8 local Maltese wines complimented with a 3-course vegetarian dinner. Both days include water and coffee. The purpose of the wine tasting is to give guests the opportunity to try as many local wines possible in one evening. Apart from offering some insight on local wines and the industry, we will also discuss little aspects of food culture in Malta and Gozo. Guests can also see the meal prepared, cooked and plated during the wine tasting. This event is being organised by a foodie for fellow foodies.
I am the founder and owner of Maldonado Bistro in Victoria, Gozo. Ever since welcoming my first customers, it has been a continuous journey about the love of food. I love to travel myself. There is no better way to experience different places and cultures but through food and drink. As a local and long time resident on Gozo, I am trying to do my part in reciprocating by offering my own view on our local food and wine scene in Gozo and Malta.

Free pick up service from the ferry terminal in Gozo
The wine tasting is held in my open kitchen situated above Maldonado Bistro. This is a private room where guests can be at ease and mingle with the host and other guests. The room is fully air-conditioned and an open terrace is nearby for smokers. There is a clear view of the host and the kitchen area.
A good sense of humour
For guests coming over from the main island of Malta, I can organise transport to collect you from the ferry terminal and take you back at the end of the evening. The wine tasting is held on the first floor. Guests need to go up a spiral stairs. Smoking is permitted on an outside terrace.
