I don't think the collections are top notch but the whole place is so original and well done that I recommend it highly. Too bad they offer you almost undrinkable (very sweet and cheap) wine afterwords.

Jurgen B, thanks for the feedback you gave about the visit, the place offers a fantastic mystique, however the exhibits are of great importance to the place. The wine we offer at the end is one of the best sparkling wines in Aliança.

A great collection in some enourmous wine cellars make for a pretty unique experience. A must if you're nearby. The wine is also very good.
