Housed in the monumental 17th-century Graziani-Baglioni illustrates the importance of wine from Antiquity to today and the thousand facets of wine as a product of culture. « less

If you have a spare 2 hours the Museum on Wine is a fabulous display of the history, production and storage of wine. The displays are professional and the audio world class. I strongly recommend this Museum for those interested in the Wine process or anyone fascinated by the history of wine in Europe.

We went to Torgiano in May specifically to visit this museum. The collection is amazing and we were pleased that an audio guide was included in the price. We we only charged 5 Euros per person since the Olive Oil Museum was closed that day. The price also included a tasting of two wines at the nearby Lungarotti winery store.... More

My visit to Torgiano was not accidental and the intention was to see the Museo Del Vino Torgiano. It was splendid. My visit was recent, today, February 8, 2014. Letizia was the gentle voiced office manager. She provided us with all the information needed for a very informal visit to this charming museum. The nominal fee included a handset providing... More

We came to Torgiano late in the day after visits to Assisi and Spello. After checking a very old Frommer's we decided to visit the wine museum. We were met with a very helpful staff member at the ticket counter who offered us a reduction in the entrance fee because we had less than 1 hour to tour the museum.... More

I was truly amazed by this gem of wine culture tucked away in the serene Umbrian countryside right in the center of Italy. Working in the wine industry, I have visited several wine museums and thought to have seen it all. So when after a pleasant visit at the Lungarotti winery, the staff proposed a visit to the wine museum,... More

This is an excellent collection of wine related treasures, from the huge wine press to the beautiful glass and ceramic collection. The wafer (not waffle presses) collection is outstanding. These wafers were used for religious purposes as well as for hospitable reasons and were usually accompanied by wine so therefore the relevance. The old palace that houses the museum is... More

We find the museum easily enough: Torgiano has a total of three streets, each one block long. The outside of the Palazzo is in the process of being repaired, but the museum is open, even if the hours are odd: read their schedule on the Web carefully. We pay the requested steep admission of 7 Euros per person and we... More

Really interesting museum, and worth paying up for the audio guide. I wouldn't recommend this for children as it's not interactive at all, and there is a lot to see (it took a long time to walk around).
