- Make your own way to D'Arenberg to commence The Blending Bench tour. Your experience begins in the Alternate Realties Museum on the ground floor of the d'Arenberg Cube, where a self-guided exploration will take you through a space filled with wall to wall art installations designed to excite and awaken your senses. All tours are assisted by the d'Arenberg smartphone application The Alternate Realities Museum' - advance downloads recommended. Entry to the museum is free of charge for all guests with a pre-booked experience, just let concierge know your reservation number on arrival. Once you've explored the museum, you will proceed to meet your host on Level 4 of the d'Arenberg Cube who will take you through to your booked experience. The Blending Bench is a hands-on, interactive experience where you play winemaker. A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavours and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness, and finesse. We did the physical work picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing, and you get to create a wine that is truly unique. You then bottle, name and label a 750ml sample to take home and show off to your friends. Tour conclusion, at your leisure continue to explore the d'Arenberg Cube.
