Once at the ticket office, families can choose between a family visit and a family game. The first involves a guided tour with staff who will talk about the Museum, the Falletti castle and its arrangements in a language aimed especially at children. The visit has a very dynamic cut, with different contents that change with the passing of the seasons. On this still winter Sunday, the period in which the vineyards and plants rest and the must kept in the barrels in the cellar is maturing, the tour will start from the terrace on the third floor of the castle, from where you can observe the “bare” rows that receive the first, warm rays of the sun useful for the formation of gems. Along the way you will then meet several rooms and images referring to winter, such as the Four Seasons room on the main floor, and you can pedal on the carousel that tells the importance with the passing of the months of the year of the elements useful for the birth some wine. Along the way we will play to recognize the olfactory scents that the wine that is now being processed will have: from flowers such as pink and violet for Barolo, to spices such as pepper and licorice for the other fine reds of the area. At the end of the visit, each family will bring home a “piece of museum”, a sort of reminder of a special place. The duration of the tour is approximately one hour.

The Game-Family is a more “do-it-yourself” visit mode, which can be used throughout the museum’s opening hours (from 10.30am to 6pm, last admission at 5pm). Those who venture into the Falletti castle can purchase a travel diary at the ticket office, to be filled in with the ideas and impressions aroused by the modern set-up conceived by the Swiss architect Confino: the landscape, wine, nature, man’s work and many other anecdotes.
