Description

Nestled in a magnificent 19th-century stone building, the Museum of Samos Wine offers a captivating journey into the rich history and tradition of Samos wine. Originally a private winery, this historic building later served as a warehouse and barrel-making facility before transforming into a museum in 2005.

The museum beautifully showcases the defining history of Samos wine through a diverse array of exhibits. Visitors can explore:

  • Old Photographs and Production Records: Witness the evolution of winemaking on Samos through historical images and documents.
  • Vineyards and Mountain Terraces: Learn about the unique geography and traditional cultivation methods of Samos vineyards.
  • Manual Labor and Harvesting: Discover the painstaking manual processes involved in harvesting and pressing grapes.
  • Aging and Vinification: Understand the art and science of aging and vinifying wine, with displays of old winemaking machinery.
  • Barrel-Making Tools: See the tools that were essential for crafting the barrels used in winemaking.
  • Collectible Bottles: Marvel at a collection of vintage and collectible wine bottles.
  • Awards and Distinctions: View the numerous awards and honors that Samos wine has earned over the years.

The museum’s layout, designed with modern museum science, takes visitors on a chronological journey through the traditional vineyard cultivation of Samos. The exhibits not only tell the story of Samian wine but also highlight its historical, social, and cultural significance. Particularly striking are the huge wooden tanks, which were in use until just a few decades ago.

Additional Attractions: 

  • Winemaking Facilities: Traditional winemaking tools, tanks, and laboratory instruments come to life through exhibits that span more than a century.
  • Barrel-Making Tools: Explore the craftsmanship behind the barrels used for aging wine.
