The Dutch Wine Museum in Arnhem (Nederlands Wijnmuseum) introduces you to all of the aspects of a complete wine experience. Thousands of years of history, together with the technical progress made in the last century, build up a picture of wine-growing, wine-making, and wine's role in society. The Dutch Wine Museum is located in one of the old underground cellars. You will receive an impression of the activities involved in running a wine business, past and present. You can learn about the many facets of viniculture; the vineyard, grapevines, the work involved in growing healthy grapes, the harvest, crushing and pressing the grapes, fermentation – a spontaneous, natural process that converts the grape juice to wine – and lots of other interesting things to do with wine.

Historic wine cellars
When you stand in the imposing cellars beneath the wine museum and take in the rows of oak barrels and wine racks filled with bottles, it’s not hard to imagine that you're visiting an idyllic French wine chateau at the beginning of the 20th century. You’ll discover Arnhem’s wine treasures, hidden deep underground. Admire the picturesque sight of the long rows of oak casks, resting alongside the stainless steel tanks in the modern bottling hall. Thousands of bottles are stored here, ripening under perfect conditions until they are ready to be uncorked and enjoyed.
The Dutch Wine Museum is open on Saturdays from 10am to 5pm. Other days by appointment. Please go to https://www.robbersenvandenhoogen.nl/reserveren-wijnhuis to make your reservation.

SATURDAY TASTINGS
To get you in the mood for the Saturday tasting session, you’ll start by taking a tour of the original wine cellars belonging to the Robbers & van den Hoogen winery next door. Then on to the wine tasting where we’ll taste different wines, accompanied by bread, and a wine expert will provide more information about the wines. The tours for the Saturday tastings begin at 1:30pm and 3pm. The price is €15 per person, which includes the tour, tasting, and entrance to the museum.

Dégustation

You will be welcomed to the 'Le Jardin' wine tavern with a cup of tea or coffee before the start of the tour in the wine cellars. This tasting is more extensive than the standard Saturday tasting. A viticulturist will explain the tasting technique and together you will taste five varieties of wine, accompanied by bread and cheese. The price of each two-person booking includes a special memento. You can visit the Dutch Wine Museum following the conclusion of the tasting. Tours for these tastings start on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm. The price is €55 per booking (for 2 people), which includes the tour, tasting, and entrance to the museum.
