History and tradition

The Wine Museum is located inside the Bodega La Rural, opposite the family home of Don Felipe Rutini, founder of the winery. In 1945 his son, Francisco Rutini, had the idea of creating this museum, and his dream was realised by his nephew, Rodolfo Reina Rutini. The museum has become one of the most important in the entire continent; here you'll find thousands of tools, old presses used to crush grapes, machines, wood presses, corking equipment, old barrels, and more. A qualified guide accompanies you on your visit, explaining step by step the process of making wine, and how it has changed over the years. At the end of the tour there is a tasting of a particular wine that is only available at the museum.

The muse wine

First stop of the Wine Route: Museum del Vino Rural to better understand how the drink is made. Free visit (or guided) begins with a passage behind huge toneaux where the grape is massération. Then we arrive in a large room where tastings are held: after around 35 pesos for a drink! Here, the tasting is expensive ...

Puis on arrive dans une grande salle où ont lieu les dégustations : compter environs 35 pesos pour un verre ! Ici, la dégustation coûte chère...

A little history before tasting

This museum is located in a winery, a vineyard dating from the late 18th century. An organized tour is offered every day but you can also find places on its own. A good way to become familiar with the world of wine while strolling among the barrels, discovering the utensils used at the time (the vicious capped for example) or walking in the vineyards. We end this discovery by a tasting of wines from the house.

Un peu d'histoire avant la dégustation

Ce musée est situé dans une bodega, un vignoble qui date de la fin du 18ème siècle. Une visite organisée est organisée tous les jours mais on peut aussi découvrir les lieux par ses propres moyens. Un bon moyen de se familiariser avec le monde de vignoble en déambulant parmi les fûts, en découvrant les ustensiles employés à l'époque (la vicieuse à bouchon par exemple) ou marchant au milieu des vignes. On finit cette découverte par une dégustation des vins de la maison.
