The Marsovin Summer Wine Festival is nowadays a sought after annual event in Malta’s summer calendar amongst both locals and also foreigners visiting our Island. The Festival is held in the magical surroundings of Hastings Gardens, Valletta, a location which alone lends itself perfectly to a walk through garden wine festival whilst enjoying the majestic views from the bastions overlooking the Yacht Marina and Sliema harbour.

The event has a highly cultural, entertaining concept offering a myriad of leading musicians each playing a different genre of music being stationed in different areas of the venue. Nevertheless the real stars of the night are the wines, offering over 30 different D.O.K and I.G.T wines from grapes grown around Malta and Gozo. With such a large selection of wines being showcased each of a different style and character, we are sure to hit all different palates, from the casual to the most sophisticated wine drinker.

The food element cannot be left unmentioned as good wine and good food go hand in hand, for this reason we engage a variety of quality caterers each offering different kinds of Mediterranean dishes to complement best our wines.



How does it work?

It’s easy, on entrance you pay a token fee of €16 and we will give you back €16 worth of wine tokens and a free Premium festival wine glass to use during the event and also to take home with you.
Youths under 17 years of age are not allowed to consume any wine.



Wine Education

This area will host a blind tasting of a selection of wines during three separate sessions every evening. Guests are invited to taste the wines on their own and try to identify the wines from a provided list. Then, one of our wine specialists will provide a guided tasting with information on the different characteristics of the grape variety, wine making techniques and what might affect its final flavour and style. The wines will then be revealed, and guests who successfully identified a number of the wines will receive a prize to take home.

Limited spaces are available, so kindly book your place by sending an email to cellars@marsovinwinery.com

    Without a doubt one of the most successful bands to have emerged locally in recent years, Airport Impressions have clocked up countless radio hits along the way, among them Borderline, Wake up, Walk with me and, more recently Hymns of June and Berlin.

Clayton (Bassist), Joseph (Trumpeter), Chris (Main Vocals) and Andrew (Guitarist), have been in the music scene from a very young age and their love for Music grew fonder as they grew older. On the other hand, Sylvano (saxophonist) and Michael (drummer) joined the rest of the band later on in 2013. This marked the inception of The Travellers.

Swing Nuages perform uptempo and retro music in the style of Django Reinhardt, who popularised the 'hot' jazz genre in the 1930s. The band play a repertoire of songs synonymous with Reinhardt, as well as other standard tunes adapted to the swinging gypsy style.

The band’s main inspirations range from The Beatles all the way to folk heroes such as Bob Dylan.

  • FRONT FIFTY-FOUR
