Located just off Calle Carretería, the Museo del Vino offers visitors a comprehensive look into the region’s esteemed wine heritage.
Since its opening in 2008 within the historic Palacio de Biedmas, the museum has attracted a steady stream of wine enthusiasts and history buffs alike, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the winemaking process, from grape cultivation to bottling.
Through its exhibits and educational initiatives, the Museo del Vino celebrates the craftsmanship, tradition and innovation that define Malaga’s winemaking identity.
Visitors can explore traditional tools and modern machinery used in wineries, as well as learn about age-old techniques like the solera wine-aging process.
Two main floors
The museum is divided into two main floors, each offering unique insights into Malaga’s vinicultural history and practices.
The ground floor houses an extensive collection of over 400 wine labels and posters dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries. These artefacts provide a visual journey through the evolution of Malaga’s wine branding and artistic expression.
Moving to the first floor, visitors delve into the historical narrative of Malaga’s winemaking traditions. From ancient viticultural practices introduced by civilizations such as the Phoenicians and Romans, to the enduring influence of Moorish culture, the museum provides a comprehensive overview of the region’s vinicultural evolution.
The tour concludes with a tasting session, where visitors have the opportunity to sample two wines: AO Malaga, known for its sweetness, and AO Sierra de Málaga, characterised by its dryness.
These wines are selected from the museum’s extensive collection of 120 local vintages.
