The designers of this cleverly constructed museum would say it’s more a cross between a cultural space, a gallery, and a theme park, with interactive exhibits showcasing the entire world of wine. Cafes, a restaurant, and a panoramic bar (where wine tastings are held) complete the picture, so allow yourself a good few hours to explore. Oh, and the wine shop also stocks bottles from more than 80 countries, as well as holding regular tastings.
