At Ta’ Mena Estate you are being immersed in the typical Gozitan country-side, surrounded by the natural and calm environment with breathtaking views. The estate is situated in the picturesque Marsalforn Valley between Victoria and Marsalforn Bay. The estate includes a fruit garden, an olive grove with about 1500 olive trees, an orange grove, and over ten hectares of vineyards. It enjoys the panoramic views of the Gozo Citadel and the surrounding hills and villages.
It is situated less than 3 kilometers from the blue Mediterranean Sea within easy reach of the fishing village of Marsalforn and the world famous Ramla Bay with its sandy beach, overlooked by the legendary cave of the Nymph Calypso. The estate is an excellent point of departure for interesting sightseeing tours of the extensive heritage found in Gozo. This includes the Neolithic Ggantija Temples which are the oldest free standing buildings in the world dating back over 5,000 years; the Citadel with its outstanding bastions, the Archeology Museum and the Cathedral, the geological park of Dwejra and all the exceptional churches, various museums and other places of interest in the different villages of the island.
At Ta’ Mena Estate we cultivate vines, olives, lemons, oranges, various fruit trees, strawberries, tomatoes, melons, water melons and other vegetables. We produce our own wine in a state-of-the -art winery, press our olives to produce a unique cold pressed extra virgin olive oil which is very low in acidity. We also produce various typical liqueurs and foods from our different fruits, vegetables and herbs. Our Kunserva Helwa (Sweet tomato paste matured in the sun) is a must to try!
We also organise wedding and anniversary receptions, guided tours around the estate followed by wine and food tasting, cooking sessions complete with lunch or dinner, BBQs, picnics and hands-on agricultural experiences including strawberry and fruit picking, grape and olive harvesting and on site experiences of wine-making and olive-oil pressing. All the above are seasonal activities and have to be pre-booked.
