This winery is a large, polished operation. We tend to enjoy the smaller, more rustic wineries, but this was an excellent tour and has encouraged us to not be so quick to skip over the large wineries in the future (we will return and see Muga and CVNE next trip!). The gentleman who guided our tour was verrrrrry serious, but... More

I visited Vivanco on a chilly December day. The skies were gloriously blue and the entire winery was bathed in bright sunlight. Against the backdrop of acres of barren vines and the hills of Briones the vineyard looked majestic. We signed on for the winery tour which included lunch and visit to the museum. The entire vineyard today is a... More

Unfortunately, we only had around an hour to go round all five rooms which wasn't enough time at all. The audio guides were helpful (although temperamental). From the history of wine, to wine accessories through the ages; bottles, barrels and corks, to the grapes themselves and the methods involved, this place had it all. My favourite room was the sensory... More

This museum is worthy of a visit. The museum is well laid out and follows the process of making wine. There is sufficient information in English to help explain exhibits.

We were recommended to go by the reception in our hotel and they were right. Although Vivanco is a family winery, the museum was about the history of Rioja wines rather than their own story. It incorporates many facets - interaction for children of all ages (I just loved jumping on the moving bunches of grapes lit up on the... More

Didn't taste the wine but the museum and grounds are superb! Beautiful landscaping around the building and a very detailed examination of winemaking, wine making tools, artwork, myths...Absolutely everything that has to of with wine in one location, past and present. Very nice gift shop too and a bar the tasting room.
