Overview

Certainly not just for its a collection of casks and bottles, the MUVIT Torgiano Wine Museum is an extraordinary time machine that guides the visitor along 5000 years of history of the civilization of wine, through archeological, artistic and ethnographic collections from the 3rd millennium B.C. to Picasso. Housed in the monumental 17th-century Graziani-Baglioni illustrates the importance of wine from Antiquity to today and the thousand facets of wine as a product of culture.

We had arranged to meet friends here before lunch so only had an hour but very interesting objects and history of winemaking. We also popped next door for free wine tasting which was a bonus.

We really enjoyed this little museum. It's filled with great objects to describe wine making in Italy. For me the most Intresting section was " drink if you can" . If you have a few hours stop in.
