Well now the first pictures from inside the 10 storey, $91 million entertainment-venue-cum-museum are here, and they have our mouths watering.

There are 20 different exhibits that cover the history and culture of wine-making, an auditorium for demonstrations, screenings and wine tasting classes, two restaurants, and of course, a bar - where you can choose from 800 different wines.
