Reasons for trip


During two weeks in Malaga, we tried to not reprise things we’d done 10 years ago, with the exception of the Museo del Vino: after all who can resist a wine museum?

The entrance fee was €5, but as we were over 60, we paid a discounted rate of €3 each, which included two tastings and then due to our bargain ticket, paid €1 for an extra tasting each.

As all the information is in Spanish only, we were offered a laminated guide in English or told we could use the QR codes to download an audio guide onto our phones. Having already established we were ‘old’, we opted for the printed text.

The small museum is located over two floors but there is a lift. It covered the advertising, development and production of Malaga wine and began with a display of the evolution of wine bottle labels. This included some featuring children, as it was originally thought wine helped counteract malnutrition.

The tasting area is informal and conducted by the guy who sells tickets. We began with a white (where we got slightly more as the bottle was emptied) from Bodegas Quitapenas, before moving on to a sweet and sticky Pedro Jimenez and finally a rose, where again, we had a slightly larger pouring.

There was a small gift shop and we bought two small bottles of Pedro Jimenez to take home for €3 each.
