Parts of Vinopolis will be closed to the public over the summer period. During this time the venue will be undertaking a multi-million pound refurbishment programme to improve its wine tour, for a relaunch in the autumn.
Vinopolis also confirmed that a 'major Olympic sponsor' is poised to hire the venue for the Games, which could put the refurbishment on hold for four weeks.
Vinopolis managing director Lucy Haines said: "We are currently looking at all the options and opportunities for our wine tour staff during the period that our tour is closed for refurbishment, including possible redundancy.
"During the Olympics period we will have a requirement for more staff than during our normal operations. Vinopolis Wine tour staff have been offered the opportunity work in alternate roles if they wish."
