The kick-start will be on July and the project is ambitious: turn the Wine Museum of Bodega La Rural into the best of its kind in the world. The project takes two years and Bórmida Yanzón is in charge of it. It will boast an area of 800 square meters, parking lot, a reception area for tourists and a place earmarked for parking bicycles, due to the growth of wine tours by bicycle in this area.
Mariano Di Paola, chief winemaker at La Rural and Rutini, says that the idea is to provide a frame to the historical appeal of the company that attracts 80,000 tourists per year. “We want to make this museum one of the best wine museums in the world; what we have here is of incalculable value,” he asserts.
Mario Yanzón of the architectural firm Bórmida Yanzón, comments: “We wish to put architectural and museological value to the hundreds of items from the winery and tools used to farm the vineyard the museum has,” among them, a press made of cow leather, pieces for transporting wine in carts and the first decanting pumps.
