Malta Launches Winery and Culture Trails
Malta Tourism Authority has launched two new trails to make planning a trip to Malta as easy as possible.
As an emerging wine destination, the new ‘winery trail’ highlights several of Malta’s vineyards that travellers can visit. The new ‘interactive map’, created in partnership with Love Holidays, allows users to see Malta’s top cultural sites and slow travel locations, perfect for those wanting to immerse themselves in the archipelago’s beauty and culture. The two new trails are a great way for travellers to get to know the destination and inspire travel to Malta.
Tolene van der Merwe, Director UK & Ireland at Malta Tourism Authority said, “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been looking for new ways to keep travellers inspired and showcase Malta’s hidden gems. We hope the latest trails in the series provide a taste of the destination until we can travel to Malta again in the not-so-distant future.”
THE WINERY TRAIL
Home to an emerging wine scene, the Maltese archipelago has a number of wineries in both Malta and Gozo making the destinations perfect for a wine tasting getaway. With the first vines planted back in 1907, Malta’s wine encompasses an array of unique tastes and flavours, which will be pleasing to any wine connoisseur’s palate, and as you can’t purchase Maltese wine in the UK, a trip the Islands is the only way to sample it.
The newly released Winery Trail, created to inspire wine enthusiasts, maps out the ultimate wine tasting break, highlighting where you can find all of Malta and Gozo’s vineyards. The newest vineyard to open is Ta’Betta, a family-run business offering tours and private wine tastings starting from €75 per person.
THE BEST CULTURAL AND SLOW LOCATIONS IN MALTA
2020 has been the year that the world learnt to slow down. ‘Slow travel’ encourages travellers to make genuine connections with the destination they are visiting, focusing on the history, locals, food, and culture; and allowing visitors to truly feel a part of the place. Malta Tourism Authority has taken the stress out of planning a ‘slow travel’ holiday with a new Interactive Map, created in partnership with Love Holidays.
The new map highlights Malta’s best cultural and slow travel locations, dividing the sights into the following categories: natural beauty, cultural and historical sights and trying something a bit different.
