It is likely to resemble the ‘P&G Family Home’ facility, first used at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.
Large parts of the venue will be occupied by P&G for 17 days during the Games, with a refurbishment project taking place later in the summer. P&G will not operate the venue during the Paralympics.
The news comes as Vinopolis employees are set to be made redundant after a month-long consultation process, before being given the opportunity to re-apply for work during the Olympics.
After the Games finishes and P&G has vacated the venue, tour guides will be required to re-apply for jobs starting in October.
A P&G spokeswoman insisted it was "a matter for Vinopolis and its employees".
Lucy Haines, Vinopolis managing director, said: "We are 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 we will have a requirement for more staff than normal."
P&G has previously used Vinopolis for events, including a press conference in January attended by Mary Lynn Ferguson-McHugh, group president of Western Europe, and Paris Kafantaris, marketing vice-president of Western Europe.
Earlier this month, Vinopolis hired brand development manager Sarah Loxton, shortly after Haines was appointed in late February.
