Malta’s greatest wine event of the year is back for its 18th consecutive edition!
As always, it takes place over four nights at the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, from the 8th to the 11th August 2019, every evening from 7pm till midnight.
Whilst entrance to the Festival will be free, strictly no wine will be served to anyone under 17 and patrons are reminded to enjoy responsibly. Wine glasses and purses are sold until 11pm, wine is poured up to 11.30pm and the festival will close at midnight. A coin system will once again be adopted whereby patrons will be able to purchase a purse of wine coins redeemable for their wines of choice.
In all there will be over 20 wines to sample. Vintages of ten Delicata award-winning brands are served from as many stalls spread along the garden’s periphery.
These include the semi-sparkling Frizzantes made from the very rare native old bush vines Girgentina and Ġellewża, a selection of white, red and rosé D.O.K. Malta Medina and D.O.K. Gozo Victoria Heights boutique wines, noble mono-varietals of the iconic flagship Gran Cavalier selection and Malta’s most internationally awarded Grand Vin de Hauteville range.
Besides the sweeter lifestyle Dolcino, the exiting, low-alcohol Spritzzer range and exclusive The Falcon wines, the popular lush Casella Moscato and other varietals of the Classic Collection will also be available for tasting. The three wines from the Pjazza Reġina range, crafted in tribute to Valletta, will also be on show to taste.
Live cooking stalls will be serving a tempting variety of both traditional Maltese and international dishes to tease a wide range of palates.
Every evening there is a double-bill concert with top local talent on show.
