Over 20 different wines at the wine festival in August

The Delicata Classic Wine Festival, Malta’s grandest and longest-running wine festival, returns to the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August 2022, from 7pm until midnight.

After a forced two-year hiatus, Delicata is delighted to host the 19th edition of their wine tasting festival. The festival also supports the local music, arts, culture and culinary scenes as part of Delicata’s environment, social and governance (ESG) commitment.

With over 20 wines to sample, wine remains the star of the show. The selection of wine includes semi-sparkling Frizzantes, the DOK Malta Medina and DOK Gozo Victoria Heights boutique wines, the flagship Gran Cavalier and Grand Vin de Hauteville ranges, the sweeter lifestyle Dolcino and Falcon wines, the lush Casella Moscato and other varietals of the Classic Collection, all three of the Pjazza Reġina wines, as well as the popular SpritZZers.

Every evening will feature a double-bill of top local talent; Cash and Band followed by Red Electrick on Saturday and Kurt Calleja & Band as well as Spiteri Lucas Band on Sunday.


Live cooking stalls will be serving a tempting variety of both traditional Maltese and international dishes to tease a wide range of palates prepared by Malta’s top event caterers Il-Kcina, Noodle Box, Grill Street, Gate of India and Sky Lounge by Luna.

Entrance is free but you can sample the wine for a fee of €20, which entitles you to a wine purse of 24 wine coins and a souvenir glass to take home. With wonderful wines, delicious food and great live music, Delicata’s festival weekend is set to be the one you don’t want to miss.
