This regional wine museum, which houses the small town’s tourist office on the ground floor, is a surprisingly large and interesting exhibition on several floors and with an outside area of splendid wine presses. There are several exhibits that show ingenious methods to deal with the work in exceedingly steep vineyards, most of which have now disappeared. There is an explanatory brochure in English.
