SAMOS WINE MUSEUM
15.Jun.2015

Samos' wine museum was inaugurated in the summer of 2005 in Malagari and is considered a success.

mousio1The space housing the museum was initially a privately-owned winery and, later, the Union’s cellar/warehouse and cooperage. The building itself is a “living” exhibit, with huge wooden casks from the early 20th century still in mint condition, although not in actual use.

Traditional wine making, its tools, its vats and tubs and its chemistry equipment, even the art of fashioning a barrel come to life through exhibits that spin visitors back into remote fragments of centennial time.

Documents, prizes and awards, bottles of wine, photographs, desk mementos and objects all contribute to complete the historic puzzle. An ingenious mousio2simulation depicting the cultivation of grape vines on their steep terraced perches (as it is customary on the island) from the moment they take root to the moment they are tenderly picked excites the imagination of visitors who may then wish to visit the two cellars, one reserved for barrels, the other for bottles of wine.

 

mousio3The Wine Museum also offers fully-equipped conference facilities for use by the Union of Vinicultural Cooperatives of Samos or other parties.
