Wine, Museum, Picasso and Sunset at Vivanco Wine Museum, La Rioja

Wine, museum, Picasso and perfect sunset! What an incredible experience all in one at the Vivanco Wine Museum in La Rioja, in the north of Spain. I have been to some of the world’s finest wineries in Australia, Italy and France but the experience at the Vivanco is so unique.

The four-floor wine museum occupies the area of 4,000 sqm in six rooms. It was designed by Spanish architect Jesús Marino Pascual.

I love the museum as it gives you all information from the beginning to the end in producing the finest wine and the process involves a lot of people from harvesting, collecting the grapes, bottle making, the barrel making, transportation, the glass etc. In the museum, you can also indulge in the finest wine related arts including the pieces from Piacasso, Andy Wahol and Dali.

The Vivanco Museum on Wine Culture is among the world’s best. The museum was inaugurated in June 2004 by King Juan Carlos I and was a private initiative of the Vivanco family, winemakers since 1915, which transformed their private collection into a museum project.
