The sixth edition of the Delicata Classic Wine Festival will soon be held at the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta.
Running between August 9 and 12 the public will again be given the opportunity to taste wines from Malta-grown grapes such as Chardonnay, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Girgentina and Gellewza. All this can be enjoyed throughout the four-day festival for the price of Lm3.75 (about €9) per person.
Food areas will be offering a range of international dishes like chicken tikka masala and roast loin of pork as well as pasta, sushi, cheese and focaccia. Food lovers will also be able to enjoy the open air, fully seated Grand Harbour Restaurant between August 10 and 12, set up in the lower gardens. A three-course meal, which includes a pasta starter, a mixed grill of fish or meat and dessert, as well as a half bottle of Delicata wine per person, will be on offer for Lm9.75 (about €23).
Live music will be on each night with regulars who include Steve Cole, Joe Brown, Big Band Brothers, Chiara and George Curmi and his band. The William Dance Company will also be performing the Delicata Harvest Dance routine every night.
