Last week in Maltalingua, we decided to spice things up a little with a fantastic wine tasting tour and a lovely dinner out by the sea.
The wine company we visited, with the name of Marsovin is located in Marsa, which means port or harbour. We still had very very warm weather here in Malta, however all was much cooler when we made our way into the icy cold cellars. The cellars are kept at a chilling 16⁰C and with extremely thick walls we surely did not feel the outdoor heat. We first had a detailed speech about the founder of Marsovin and the vineyards where the grapes are grown. Our French guide than took us for a tour around the cellars and described different facts about storing their wine and also how the sparkling wine is made and stored very carefully.
Save the best for last, the tasting of the wine. To go with the different wins, we also had traditional Maltese appetizers, simply splendid. With a group of 10 students and another 6 Dutch men, the atmosphere was really nice and friendly.
As we were gathering next to our van just outside the establishment one of my students brought me a bottle of wine as a thank you for helping her at the school. This really made my day and certainly brought a big smile to my face. 🙂
To add on the cherry onto our cake, we went out for dinner with a group of 25 students. The restaurant is located just across from our school so was not a problem for anyone. Fabulous wine, good food and certainly very nice company, the students really had a fantastic day.
This is what the Maltalingua experience is all about!
