The floors are have different approaches, but you can see they really tried to make it work. If you don't mind a bit of reading, this museum can tie a nice bow on your wine trip. You'll be leaving knowing more about wine and the...More

You had to have great courage to make such a platitude. Even a student without a budget would make it more interesting exposition. It seems that the author of the museum was the goal - to talk about wine to those who never drank it....More
