Fantastic winery and museum. Both modern. They are located side by side. The museum has 3 floors. Wow. Lots of EU money was invested here. Beautiful museum that walks you through the history of winemaking. Lots of ancient artifacts from Roman times and beyond, tools, machinery, videos. I am not sure but I think the museum visit may be an... More

Big museum, lots of ancient wine history here. Unfortunately everything is written in Spanish so be sure to reserve an English tour if you don't speak the language. The gift shop is overpriced. The wines are ok. The land is beautiful around the museum, be sure to leave time for walking the vineyards.

Assuming you're at all interested in wine, this is unmissable. Must have a good claim to be the best wine museum in the world. Brilliantly laid out, superb visuals - we went to it without great expectations and found it riveting. There's an awful lot to see so allow loads of time - maybe have a meal there (we didn't)....

The person who did the tour was very good and helpful, however, there were too many people on the tour and it did overlap onto another tour so sometime sit was difficult to hear. it was not a bad tour but not the best I have done, the Ramon y Bilbao was more intimate and Muga offers a view of...

Vivanco's wine museum is probably the most complete on this planet, except... there's nothing about the typical Greek resin-flavoured wine, the famous "retsina". When I first visited this museum (this year's visit was the third), I asked the guide about it, and she had never heard of it. Would certainly pass the enquiry... nothing came of it, but if you...

The Museo del Vino surely must be one of the most complete wine museums on earth. Anything you want to know about wine, especially about La Rioja, you will find it there. Great museum, great tour, nice tasting.

If you are visiting La Rioja and some of the bodegas this is a fascinating addition to the experience. Well laid out with a lovely gift shop, cafe, interesting displays, lovely gardens and stunning regional views. Allow yourself several hours here to relax and enjoy the environment. Staff were also very helpful when we got lost and couldn't find our... More

Really enjoyed the story this museum told us. Staff were very useful. Don't worry too much if you cannot see the initial film in your language - you can skip it without it denting your experience of the museum. Allow at least 1hr 30 mins for the visit if you are using the headset tour in a language other than... More

I've been traveling to Spain for 30 years and have been drinking the wines of La Rioja for at least that long... if you have even the remotest interest in wine and wine-making, this museum is really worth a visit. The Vivanco family, four generations now, have carefully gathered some incredible pieces of Spanish (and other) viticultural history. Of particular... More
