On the occasion of the 18th Museum Night, which this year is organized under the theme Museums are important!, the Museum of Viticulture and Winemaking ‒ Putniković joins the Museum Night for the first time, emphasizing the importance of museums in the life of the local community, the preservation of material and immaterial culture, the presentation of the traditional and modern economy, and above all sustainability, which is the bridge between the local community and the wider society.
On Museum Night on January 27, 2023, the museum will be open to visitors from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Through the museum exhibits and the story that accompanies them, visitors will be able to evoke the hard work and calloused hands of our laborers who gave birth to top wines, but also follow the historical framework of the development of viticulture, village customs, and everyday life, as well as the history of research into viticulture, winemaking, distribution and marketing in the 20th century.
At 7:30 p.m., an expert guiding tour of the museum will be organized under the title Drop of sweat for a drop of joy. The guiding tour will be completed with a wine tasting in our tasting room.
We invite everyone to join us in this exciting event and acquire new knowledge about viticulture and winemaking, as well as about the life of the people of Pelješac, which is significantly determined by the unique landscape and deep history.
