The Wine Museum in Malaga


Some weeks ago we talked about the extensive wine list available in the restaurant of Hotel Florida Spa and also explained how some of the wines we offer come from the Malaga region.

Well, the relationship between Malaga and wine is so close that we even have our own Museum of Wine.

The Museum of Wine is in Malaga city only 10 minutes away from the Malaga Centre train station.

Located in Plaza de Viñeros this museum is housed in an 18th Century building and was created out of desire of having a place where our wines and culture could be shown and tasted.

If you fancy visiting this interesting museum and knowing a bit more about wines from Malaga here in Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to do it next Saturday the 11th of May as this is when Malaga celebrates its fantastic White Night.

Due to this special occasion the museum will remain open all night and its entrance will be free. That night it will also offer free tastings of ecologic wine, so if you would like to visit it and participate in the tastings you will have to sign up  beforehand by emailing
