Fodor's Review

Samos is famous for its (internationally awarded) wines, particularly its delectable vin doux liquer wine or other sweet wines such as Nectar and Anthemis, and more recently its dry whites such as Phyllas, made with organic muscat grapes. All wines produced on Samos are by law made by the Union of Vinicultural Cooperatives, who in 2005 created this museum on the winery's grounds in tribute to the island's winemaking past and present. Start by looking at the photo

exhibition of local winemaking over the last century and proceed to see large and small the tools used in production, as well as early 20th-century casks, and finally the French oak barrels used today, before proceeding to the main hall to indulge in a wine tasting of the union's wines, which are also sold at the museum shop (in some cases at a higher price than you will find in other local shops).
