  • It's nice to spend some of our time to this type of culture and visit museums. I found it beautiful and structurally interesting for content. In the various rooms you can admire the instruments and tools that have been used over time, developments in processing, the mills and the importance that wine has had in the area and more generally to humans. In each room you can read about the warning signs, a description of the contents thereof, from photos to the original objects. Then in some basement rooms there are original crushers and used over time, as the Museum is right out of a structure used as a cellar. Finally there are also rooms where see works and various types of ampoules or vessels used for the transport and storage of wine. I find that assisted by a guide would be an appropriate place to bring even their children to learn a little more about what life was like before all this technology.

  • The Wine Museum in Torgiano is inevitable if you're in the area. A throwback to all those interested in history, you will see the most beautiful and oldest objects (sometimes extravagant) used to derive and drink wine. Full of art and culture. The guide was really great, attentive to detail, explained to us what we did not know in an entertaining way and comprehensively. I recommend everyone to go in order to appreciate more what the most precious thing we have in our area.

  • Very nice museum with information about the history of wines in general. With wine jars, barrels, stories about old pharmaceutical use of wines. Free Audio-tours, also in English, are available and you can get a combiticket for the Wine- and Olive-oil museum. End the tour with an included wine tasting in the shop of Lungarotti next to the Museo del Vino.
  • Very nice and impressive. The internal path is a bit labirintiaco but irrelevant detail. If you go over there, is the only real attraction oil Museum in Torgiano.
