The Wine Museum of Malaga

Malaga

Museums and Galleries Museums
This museum housed in the old 17th century Palacio de Biedmas was set up by the promotional board of the local wine appelations, that of Malaga, and Sierras de Malaga. The visit is largely based around the tasting of the wines of the region and shouldbe booked in advance or join a group on arrival, but there is a fascinating collection of exhibits derived from 200 years of wine making paraphenalia. There are lables, boxes, equipment, bottles of all kinds and a host of interesting objects related to the wine. The great philoxera plague of root eating bugs which rolled like a tidal wave over Europe destroying vinyards far and wide, arrived in Malaga in 1877 wiping out a sector that was world famous and a main pillar of the economy. The resulting devastation was profound, and the erosion due to the loss of the vines caused terrible floods at the turn of the century. The industry, as elsewhere slowly recovered, based on the importation of immune American strains. Today you can sample the great sweet and dark wine based on such grapes as Pedro Jimenez and Moscatel. You can book a group tour of 40 minutes for 25€, or take an unguided tour with a two tastings at 5€ (concessions 3€) OAP and under 18s free.
