The museum is not so visible from outside being located in the basement of a palace, but walking past we soon saw the staircase decorated with a wine barrel and old farm equipment. We emailled in advance to make an appointment but I don't think that's absolutely required - the opening hours are 9am-12pm. Either way, on descending the stairs you need to ring the bell for Dr Ferla to let you in. He's friendly as well as extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. He apologised that he can't speak English but nevertheless he knew enough (combined with our very few words of Italian) to be able to point out the salient points of each display. The museum is packed with a huge collection of wines, old bottles, labels, corkscrews, traditional production equipment, pictures and more. In the fifth and final room we were offered a choice of glass of either white, red or sweet wine from the small bar. Here there are also a range of bottles of wine and a few other items for sale. It was an interesting way to spend an hour and I expect would be even more so if you can speak Italian. Entrance including a glass of wine is 5 euros.
