A visit to The Story of Wine, Babylonstoren's new wine museum

We had the pleasure of visiting Africa's first and only wine museum situated on the beautiful Babylonstoren estate in the Franschhoek Valley. A modern museum, the space details the origins, cultivation and culture behind mankind's love affair with wine, while encouraging a contemporary narrative of its age-old traditions and social gravitas. It is a visceral and interactive journey through the history and science of wine.

A bottle of Constantia desert wine made in 1821, a cinematic vat, and a virtual reality cellar tour are just a few of this museum's incredible highlights.
