Marsovin is a household name in Malta, synonymous with the production with premium wines. The roots of this well-earned status were planted almost a century ago when Chev. Anthony Cassar founded the company under the name A&G Cassar, in 1919. Marsovin was incorporated in 1956 as a family run company which grew to become a significant part of the history of wine-making in Malta.
