Museo della Vite e del Vino di Scansano [Scansano Museum of Grapes and Wine]

Founded in the Palazzo Pretorio at Scansano, the Museum aims to promote the culture and traditions of the territory inherent to wine production. The exhibition is made up of five different sections: historical area (archaeology of wine); production area; "grapevines and wine cycle" area; traditions area (wine-tasting laboratory); and information area. The Museum is the headquarters of the Associazione "Strade del Vino Colli di Maremma" ["Maremma Hills Wine Roads" organisation], which offers food and wine tours of the territory.
