Delicata Classic Wine Festival at Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta
August 9 @ 7:00 pm - August 12 @ 11:30 pm CEST
The reason I have decided to share this event is that Emmanuel Delicata Winemaker Ltd. happen to have some vegan-friendly wines.
Organised by Emmanuel Delicata Winemaker, Malta’s greatest wine event of the year is back for its 17th consecutive edition!
As always, it takes place over four nights at the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, this year’s European Capital of Culture, from the 9th to the 12th August 2018, every evening from 7pm till midnight.
Whilst entrance to the Festival is 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 closes at midnight. A coin system will once again be adopted whereby patrons will be able to purchase a purse of 24 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 including The Crowns, Gianni and Rug, The Busker, Planet Seed, Kersten Graham and Band, Spiteri Lucas Entertainment, Bernie and Pod and Cash & Band.
Delicata Privilege Card holders (subscribing until the 07/08/18) may use the fast track facility provided they have pre-booked online through the Winery’s website (booking open closer to the event).
