Whata a stunning building,first off we had a private tour eplaining all about how it was designed and what the shape represents, then in side the things to see are very interesting and we also had a tasting session as part of the ticket we...More
Very good exhibition, very broad, slightly too high-tech for us! would have preferred some wine as you go round (2 hours plus) - all you get is a small tasting voucher for a glass at the end...interesting exhibition of wines from every country in the...More

This is a very interesting place to visit, with a glass of wine at the end of the experience! True, the layout is a bit haphazard, with no particular plan leading from one exhibit to the next, but most of it is hands on, and...More
