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 for 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: 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’; & the sister duo of the New Victorians will be showcasing their memorable melodies. More live acts and chill out music are amongst other attractions that we have lined up for each night of this special event.
For the very first time, this year we shall be including a dedicated Wine Educational Area, which will offer fun and interactive ways to learn about wine. It will feature a blind tasting of a selection of wines, followed by a detailed explanation of each one, and the opportunity to walk away with a prize. Kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
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; Bottegin Palazzo Xara will be setting up for their famous 12 hour smoked pork; Eat Me I’m Famous will be offering freshly made pizza on site; Brass&Knuckle will be present with premium cold cuts & cheese; Chukkas Grill will be chargrilling a variety of meats; and last but not least The Pulled Meat Company will be preparing an array of mouthwatering 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 2016.
