On the 10th, 11th, and 12th July at 8pm until 01:00am, Marsovin is planning to hold the eighth edition of their Wine Festival at Hastings Gardens in Valletta.
The Marsovin Summer Wine festival is set to be a wine festival with a difference
The location alone lends itself perfectly, to a walk through garden wine festival whilst enjoying the majestic views from the Valletta bastions, overlooking the Yacht Marina and Sliema harbour. The event plans to have a highly cultural and entertaining concept, by presenting a myriad of professional musicians performing daily, whilst offering a vast selection of over 30 certified D.O.K and I.Ġ.T quality wines from grapes grown around Malta and Gozo. All of these wines can be enjoyed by visiting the different wine bars, carefully spread around Hastings Gardens. The event has always adopted a token system in exchange of wine, this encourages patrons to taste and enjoy the large variety of quality wines made available, without over consuming.
A fusion of good wine, food & music
A few of the artists in this year’s line-up include Malta’s leading bands: Red Electrick, giving an unplugged acoustic set; Airport Impressions, one of the most successful bands to have emerged locally in recent years; The Creepers, a cutting edge vintage blues band; & Kazinska a talented seven-piece ensemble giving their own cool interpretation of ‘banda marches’. More live acts and chill out music are amongst other attractions that we have lined up for each night of this special event.
Marsovin has engaged various restaurants and caterers to showcase their cuisine, offering a small but enticing selection of dishes at very reasonable prices. Renowned Asian fusion restaurant – Temptasian will be manning a sushi bar, Xara Palazzo Bottegin will be setting up for their famous 12 hour smoked pork; Eat Me I’m Famous – will be offering freshly made pizza on site, Zammeats will be present with premium cold cuts & cheese, Chukkas Grill will be chargrilling a variety of meats, and last but not least Il Carciofo will be preparing an array of mouthwatering traditional fresh pasta & Maltese dishes.
How does it work?
All those attending the wine festival have the opportunity to purchase a €15 token package fee, which includes a premium festival wine glass to take home and €15 worth of wine tokens, with which one can either taste up to 20 different wines or drink a selection of wines by the glass or by the bottle. Alternatively for those who are not wine drinkers but still want to mingle around and enjoy the live entertainment, a variety of non-alcoholic refreshments will also be available for sale.
So indulge your senses and be sure not to miss the Marsovin Summer Festival 2015.
