Such a fantastic place. Interesting, beautiful, informative, exceptional staff. Please go here; the museum and winery tour are well worth the hour each. The food is fantastic in the restaurant and the views are unsurpassed. Great afternoon/day out. Interesting to find out about the Rioja and Basque regions. You won't be disappointed! Viva Vivanco.

Living in London I am very fortunate to have visited some of the world's great museums. However, I was blown away with how much thought and care went into the curating of this wine museum. We took advantage of the free audio guide in English which I would highly recommend as all of the commentary is written in Spanish only.... More

This is a first rate facility for anyone who wants to know more about the wine industry. The story of wine is well presented with interesting and varied videos and exhibitions to bring the subject to life - the largest collection of cork screws and vines in the world and even an original Miro painting and a Picasso Jug!

This museum is outstanding -- truly world class, with something for everyone, even if you don't love wine! From the vines themselves, to wine-making equipment and vessels to corkscrews, the collections in this museum are amazing. There is also a station in the museum that allows you to smell common aromas found in wine. Located in a beautiful setting, this... More

This review is conditional upon the fact that we turned up when it was closed on a Monday in August, just in passing. But they are quite happy for you to park up and explore the grounds, including the lines of vines and a wonderful collection (hundreds) of living grape varieties from across the world. So you'll see local varietals... More

A friend had recommended I visit the Vivanco Wine Museum while in La Rioja. I was running out of time but decided to go anyway and was so glad I did. A lot of thought and love of wine clearly went into putting this museum together. Through a combination of videos, audio guides, and exhibits, the museum tells the history... More

My wife and I got tickets online for a tour. Unfortunately the English tour for the day was booked, so we attended one in Spanish. Fortunately my wife is almost fluent and translated the parts I didn't understand (which was most of it). Even through I didn't follow it all, I really enjoyed the tour and learning about the grapes... More

This museum covers everything related to wine. Well designed, kid friendly, variety of displays interspersed with short films that communicated artfully. There were multiple areas that flowed together each with a particular emphasis ( history, geography/ geology, plants / horticulture, winemaking, characteristics of wine, storage, shipping, and enjoying ). There were artifacts related to all of the areas including wine... More

We visited Vivanco on our way from Bilbao to Logrono. It is in a lovely setting. Interesting wine tour and guide. Two wines to taste were included in the tour price and afterwards you can pay to taste more. We tried five in total and all were very good quality. We didn't do the museum or eat at the restaurant.... More
