"An interactive museum for adults, Vinopolis (City of Wine) is a self-guided tour of wines from all over the world._x000D_

An interactive museum for adults, Vinopolis (City of Wine) is a self-guided tour of wines from all over the world.

Starting in ancient Georgia, where wine is believed to have been invented, the tour continues through the major regions of Europe before entering the “New World” of wine production, including California, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, and New Zealand.

Tasting stations along the route, changing scenery depicting each region and time period, and even a virtual tour of Tuscany on a stationary Vespa combine to create a full-immersion experience.

Wine is not the museum’s only focus, however. Visitors will also be treated to cocktails as they learn about special liqueurs like Bombay Sapphire and absinthe. Known as the “green fairy,” a little absinthe goes a long way, and the loopy visitors exiting the museum are proof positive.

The overall atmosphere of the space is elegant and warm, with pin-spot lighting reflecting off the warm colors and architectural features.

Popular with a diverse clientele that includes everyone from curious local folks to international wine connoisseurs, Vinopolis promises an upscale experience in a relaxed and welcoming setting.

Wine Tasting
Kira A. Aug 8, 2012
A friend and I booked a wine tasting tour at Vinopolis (You can book one easily by going online to their website and choosing the type of tour you want). You're grouped together with about 25-30 other people and the first 15 minutes is a group lesson on how to identify, taste and break down the different aspects of the wine. Then they send you off on your own to taste! Instead of directing the group, there are different tables set up and the wines are grouped together based on country of origin. You have X amount of tasting tickets that you can use at whichever tables you'd like. All in all, Vinopolis was a fun time and I did learn some great tasting tips. However, the big groups were a little too big- you don't get the intimate experience associated with most wine tasting tours. If you're looking for something more authentic and less commercial, head somewhere else.
