World Heritage Wine Museum

Northern Hungary

This ambitious museum has comprehensive coverage of Tokaj and the Hegyalja region and its wines. But it doesn’t stop there, with a high-tech look at the half-dozen other World Heritage wine regions in Europe (Italy, France and Portugal). And there's very little you won't know about coopers and barrel-making after a visit here.
