Can clearly recommend this for anyone who is curious on wine. Super nice staff and an exhibition that leads through the most of the most needs to know about wine. A nice bonus is that they offer a glass of cava at the end

Visit well worth the €7 per person. Very informative although I don't think the audioguides added anything. Lockers available to stow baggage during the visit. Free taste of the wine in the attached taverna afterwards.

The museum was quite interesting but they can't decide whether they want to be informative or entertaining so do neither especially well. The exhibits could be interesting if they were better explained. There is a multilingual electronic guide but it has too much flowery waffle...More

If it's open, you must visit this place for a glass of wine. Fantastic selection of very good local wines and freshly made tapas. Didn't eat here but from what I read they weren't your normal, boring tapas.

Thank you Julie P for giving your opinion of the museum. We are really convinced that after visiting the exhibition the tasting experience is much more special. For this reason we undersatnd the museum's tavern as another room of the museum.
