We spent a very enjoyable morning at the museum here when we stayed in Rioja last September.
The museum is quite new and modern and extremely well curated. At the start of our visit we were able to view a film (in english) that introduced the winery and the museum. After that, we explored the museum. The exhibits cover all aspects of wine including the history of wine production and consumption and also how glass bottles, corks and barrels are made. I particularly enjoyed the interactive display that covered wine colour & nose. There is also an extensive art collection on show, which includes paintings, sculptures, mosaics and cinema. The collection of cork screws was quite interesting too!
The location of the museum is beautiful, with gorgeous views of the town of Briones and nearby hills and vineyards. There is an outdoor display of various grape variety plantings with information.
The museum has a cafe / wine bar with nice tapas and wine from their own winery. The cafe has a pleasant outdoor space too. There is a more formal restaurant on site which we didn't try.
The museum shop is well stocked with all sorts of wine related goods.
We didn't have time to tour the winery.
