Wine has played an important part in the Pico Island culture that began with the inhabitation of the island. The Wine Museum is located at the Carmo Convent. It is small and basic but if you are interested in Pico wine a visit to the Wine Museum is mandatory. You’ll see the vineyards and majestic dragon trees.
