A visit to Bodegas Marques de Riscal is a travel to the roots of Riojan winemaking and an ultimate experience. Frank Gehry design hotel is a must see and must feel. I enjoyed being guided around the Bodega. However the whole experience seemed a little distant and too much perfectionist which took out the spirit and made it somewhat mechanic.... More

The only reason we came to visit the winery was to get a tour of the hotel (designed by the well-known Frank Gehry). I also attempted to book a room in the hotel six months before our trip and was told it was totally booked. I communicated with the winery well over a month before the tour date. I received... More

This was our favourite vineyard trip because the hotel is such a beautiful structure and we had the full tour which explained more about the wines but also about why the hotel was built and how one of the worlds most famous architects came to work in Logrono

My husband and I had the Marques de Riscal wine for our wedding day, so when in the Rioja region it was an obvious tour. Being English speakers we were limited to timings, that was also likely to be as we were mid-week and out of season. Having said that, it was just the two of us on the tour... More

Wonderful visit here last week. Marta, our guide, was fabulous! She was so cheerful and informative. The wine is outstanding and the care taken by the employees is obvious.

WE did not make a reservation, and could not get in on a short notice. but we were glad we stopped by. The building, by the same architect that created Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, is worth attention!

Lovely wine and great tasting rooms and shop to purchase wine and other wine related products. They also have a cafe to have snack and lovely grounds to stroll around.

A two hour visit - you must book and choose between English and Spanish. A behind-the-scenes look at a world class winery. informative, entertaining and worth every penny. The time flew and before we knew it we were given a coached tasting of two of this excellent wineries' wonderful wines. Combine a tour with a meal at the fabulous restaurant... More

Although far from being a wine buff, I do enjoy visiting wineries when I'm abroad and have been fortunate to enjoy tours of wineries in Australia, Medoc, California, Mendoza and Puglia so I at least have a point of reference to work from and this facility is right up there with the best of them.

I very much enjoyed this well organized tour. The tour provided a good summary of Rioja wine and the wine making process. The tour guide was knowledgeable and was able to respond to all questioned asked. As with almost all bodegas in this area; you must book the tour in advance.
