About
Have you ever asked yourself how the wine gets into the bottle and what a winemaker has to do all year round? You can find the answers to these questions in the LOISIUM World of Wine located in Langenlois, Lower Austria. Amongst the vineyards nosy parkers have the chance to discover the fascinating world of wine within a labyrinth underneath the surface, which is 1.5 kilometres long and about 900 years old. Since the opening in 2003, the LOISIUM has established itself to the centre for wine and culture in Lower Austria. The fascinating combination of world-class architecture and the sensual mystic world of wine located underneath the surface is the heart of the LOISIUM. The Lower Austria - Vinotheque & Sektotheque offers the delicious wines and sparkling wines for tasting and sale for farm-gate prices. The LOISIUM World of Wine is open all year round, not depended on weather conditions and suitable for the disabled.

This museum is located in an amazing wine region in the town of Langenlois. Definitely worth a visit. In one place are all the wines that can be bought.

This is very unique, extensive 900-y/o wine cellars in a lovely rural part of Austria, now with a very modern and unique "immersive" tour set up. Depending on your mindset the audioguide with the family's story may be "cheesy" for some, and in truth the amount of objective learning was relatively little (unless you know nothing about wine making), but it was fun. Some of the art installations are VERY cool (quite a good laser light show, some sound installations, interactive light fixtures, etc.). BUT: make sure you check your audioguide before you go down - we discovered one of ours only spoke German, could not figure out how to fix it and NO WAY TO CONTACT ANYONE ONCE YOU ARE DOWN THERE. How is that even safe? you can't get out until you get all the way to the end. Agree with others that the lady who appeared to be in charge had NO interest in guests and didn't seem to care that one of us basically missed the whole tour (we told them when we finally got back to the surface). Some of the interactive exhibits (life-size cutouts of winemakers that are supposed to talk to you) did not work but that was a minor thing. The wine tastings are very affordable and they let you take them to a pleasant outdoor patio to enjoy. This could have been a 5* for me if the proprietors seemed to care and made sure everything worked!!

What it taught us was that someone with a condescending attitude to their customers and with money to waste, had probably had great fun building this Disney-style show. It taught us nothing about the wine they sold.
The idea behind it is that you experience what it's like to be a grape being converted into wine. It includes walking down a spiral ramp - you're being tipped into the vat; descending in a slightly cramped lift to the accompaniment of graunching noises - you're being crushed; and standing round a fountain display with coloured lights - that's the fermentation. Any wine that erupts that much is not going to be worth drinking.
Then you walk through the wine cellar caves and see a whole load of bottles and wooden casks - all very much the same as other wine caves. Eventually you get to taste a few wines. What we got was, and I quote our guide, was “entry level wines”. They were not particularly cheap and a waste of money to buy.
I have visited quite a few wine producers and often seen their cellars. This was the worst.

My husband and I stayed at the connecting resort, so it was a short stroll down to the Museum as it is located directly inline with the front of the resort.

Amazing take on presenting the history of Lagenlois wine and its family. A perfect way to spend the morning or afternoon and finish the self guided tour with a tasting and a small light lunch overlooking the city center and surrounding vineyards.

We were taken there from Vienna by a friend who had visited a while ago. He was impressed to see some excellent improvements made recently. You start the winery tour at what looks like a very modern lift. The doors are drawn back and you walk down past the ultra modern wine equipment until you enter the shower room where fountains and audio descriptions are supported by colourful lights. It is surprisingly informative and interesting. You then follow the wine trail through a number of chambers with different settings depicting old and new wine production techniques. Eventually you arrive at the enormous shop where you trade your audio equipment for a glass of wine...all in all a jolly good time and very informative. We also had a nice snack meal which was tasty.

We came here as part of a wine tour with Insight Vacations. It has to have been one of the worst tours I have ever been on - not only of a winery - but worst tour of anything. The guide was a women who was not engaging and seemed completely bored & monotone. The wine for our tasting was terrible. I couldn't wait for it to end. Super cheesy. I've been to wineries all over the world and this was by far - the absolute worst! Don't waste your time. Trip Advisor, I usually am not let down by your "Certificate of Excellence" rating - WHY???

Really interesting wine museum / attraction showing development of the area and the production of wine. Tour goes underground and through museum styled rooms as well as very interesting caverns with some modern installations. Ends in a very well stocked wine shop and useful sampling at a small charge before purchase. Only improvement I would suggest is that they could advertise foreign languages more. When we asked in English for help people were very able to do so - but this wasn't advertised. I think this is key for an attraction. But enjoyed our day out.

Great museum describing the life of a vineyard family. Very modern and great imagination used to keep your attention, very well done. Not sure the price of 13.50 Euro is good value however.
Staff a bit lethargic , good shop and local wine selection. Not impressed with the exterior architecture.
