Adjacent to the Grand Prix Museum is the Macau’s Wine Museum. Even though I don’t drink, I found the Wine Museum quite fascinating. With 1143 different wine brands (1115 Portuguese and 28 Chinese) and the Porto 1815 being the oldest one, the museum presents examples of wine production in the People’s Republic of China.
Upon entering you are informed about the wine-making process in it’s cellar region where there are various traditional and modern implements on display that are used for wine making. You will also find art pieces depicting wonderfully the traditional Portuguese way of making wine. One of the best thing for history lovers is that all varieties of wine are accompanied by a short explanation.
Of course, the main attraction of the museum is its display of wines and wine barrel . There’s also a wine-tasting station, you can have a tasting of selected bottles for MOP $15.
All in all I must say that the museum is perfect for historians and wine-lovers.
