Barolo Wine Museum

Barolo, Piedmont, Italy, 2003-10

An original wine museum staging all its own history and culture.
French people, being chauvinists by definition, do not know a lot about Italian wines. Yet Barolo wine is not only the best in Italy, it's one of the best in the world.
To celebrate the fact, at the castle of Barolo, Agence Confino are designing a five storey 3200m2 permanent exhibition on the history of wine all over the world, gradually bringing the focus onto Barolo wine and the history of the castle, taking a detour into the relationship between wines and painting, music, literature and film-making, not to mention food and cooking.
