Wine and Civilizations


A journey through 3,000 years of vine-growing and wine-making in Catalonia
Located in the heart of the Penedès, Catalonia’s largest wine-growing region, the museum has existed for 90 years, in the historic center of Vilafranca del Penedes, a unique venue, the Palace of the Kings of Aragon, a medieval building combining the charm of historic architecture with the most up-to-date technology. Vinseum’s diverse heritage is the legacy left in Catalonia by 3,000 years of vine and wine growing. The museum is currently undergoing renovation and extension work. Here you can see images of work in progress. We look forward to seeing you at the opening in early 2024.

VINSEUM, offers a varied program of cultural and educational activities to deepen wine culture for families, schools, high schools, universities, etc. and hosts the annual MOST, Festival Internacional de Cinema del Vi.

Vinseum is also a documentation center whose collections have been enriched over the years, since the Museum was founded in 1935.
Vilafranca, tradition, vines and wine

Vilafranca del Penedès is the capital of the Alto Penedès and the capital of wine!
It’s one of Catalonia’s largest cities, thanks to its status as capital of the Haut Penedès region, which has a long tradition of winegrowing, its strategic location and good transport links with the main cities of Catalonia and Spain.

Wine production has left its mark on its character, culture and traditions. Vilafranca combines medieval nobility with new economic, commercial and cultural trends. Equipped with all modern services, it is home to a variety of industries and is seeing the development of the wine and cava sector.

Vilafranca del Penedès immediately conjures up images of heritage, landscapes, wine and traditions, including “human towers”.
