    The Museum of Wine in Art

Situated in a former barrel hall, the Museum of Wine in Art contains exceptionally rare items of 17th century German gold- and silverware, jugs, cups and goblets from the fabulous treasure of the kings of Naples, mediaeval tapestries, paintings, ivories, glassware, Chinese, Japanese and Persian porcelain and much more. It is a magical place where so many artists and art forms, cultures and religions bear resounding witness to the eternal and fruitful dialogue between art and wine.
