Emmanuel Delicata, Malta’s fourth generation family run winery, has achieved a historic milestone by accomplishing the significant feat of being awarded over 100 international awards for its wines over a span of 20 years.
The 100 awards include gold medals won in France, Italy and Spain, silver medals won in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Paris, London, and Verona, and numerous bronze medals and Commendations awarded at wine competitions from all over Europe.
In 1995, Delicata entered its wines into a wine competition in London for the very first time and immediately won 4 awards. Since then the company has entered a small number of wines every year in various international wine competitions. Twenty years on, this Maltese winery has amassed an impressive 106 awards, with 22 of those being won in 2014 and 2015 alone.
“Our real sense of achievement is the knowledge that the wines that have won international awards are not just our premium wines, but wines at all price-points. Our consumers can rely on the fact and feel confident that when they buy a Delicata wine, they have renowned independent reassurance that it will be a wine of good quality,” said Mr Mario Delicata.
“Achieving 100 international awards is a major accomplishment that any winery in the world would be proud of. It is independent proof, by some of the world’s leading wine authorities, that the quality of Delicata wines is going from strength to strength.”
In recent years, Delicata has intensified its investment into improving quality through advanced viticulture and winemaking technology. Matthew Delicata, who of late has taken over the reins of winemaking, has had his wines rewarded with 3 gold, 2 silver, 5 bronze medals and 4 commendations in the last 8 months alone, making Delicata Malta’s most awarded winery.
