The Casa Torreada dos Barbosa Aranha, a building classified of public Interest, dates from century XVII and was bought by the Municipality of Ponte de Lima, in a stage it was in big degradation. Several partnerships were started since that date to promote the Vinho Verde, namely with the Commission of Viticulture of this region that has taken interest in making this structure a reality today.
The museological program, associated to the architecture of the space, has always had in mind two main factors: the singularity of the history of the territory and, as a consequence, the Vinho Verde as a result of its terroir. After this opportunity of watch (or revisit) some of the pieces kindly lent by the General Direction of Agriculture and Fisheries of the North, such as the syringe for the phylloxera, or the small barrel with wooden rings, we go the Auditorium. Here a short movie invites the visitor to run the territory of the nine sub-regions, of this great Region of Vinhos Verdes. At last, the Tasting Room, as one can’t get “the flavour” without tasting it!
