A celebration of local food and wine at The Phoenicia Malta

The Phoenicia Malta is thrilled to announce an exquisite culinary event taking place at the esteemed Contessa restaurant on the 26th of April. In collaboration with renowned local winery Marsovin, this event promises an evening of gastronomic delight, spotlighting the flavours of local ingredients and some of the finest indigenous wines the island has to offer.

'Local' and 'indigenous' are two concepts that have gained a lot of importance over the last few years, evoking a sense of place and identity. This event promises a harmonious blend using the best of local flavours and seasonal ingredients expertly crafted by Head Chef Daniel Debattista and his talented culinary team. Some ingredients have even been grown in the hotel's own kitchen garden, in fact. Each delectable dish will be paired with fine Maltese wines from Marsovin Winery - a leading winery deeply rooted in Malta's viticultural history. Each carefully selected wine is produced using the local indigenous grape varieties - Girgentina and Gellewza - and served from Magnum bottles.


This event serves as a testament to the hotel's dedication to supporting the Maltese community and environmentally conscious actions. One of the many reasons why The Phoenicia Malta has been voted as a Sustainability Leader within the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World network.

"We are delighted to collaborate with Marsovin and showcase the best of Maltese ingredients at Contessa," said General Manager of The Phoenicia Malta. "This event reflects our commitment to celebrating local flavours and supporting sustainability initiatives within our community."

Guests can anticipate an evening of culinary exploration. From flavoursome starters to decadent desserts, each dish will be expertly paired with Marsovin's finest wines, creating an unforgettable dining experience.
