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.

The winery... the restaurants... the hotel. This is truly a special experience that embodies the heritage and the vision of this spectacular, magical corner of La Rioja. Words cannot begin to describe how cool, and first class the wine and hotel are. First Class all the way.

We really enjoyed the winery tour here, probably the best I've ever been on, and I've been on a lot. The guide was excellent, the facilities both historic and new, and a 7-minute video explaining their winemaking process was excellent. A real plus was touring the adjacent vineyards which included a view of the Frank Gehry-designed Marques de Riscal hotel.... More

Book for a winery tour! For those who are familiar with the process, wine tours are often boring. This one is special as it not only illustrates the history of this very large, excellent producer, but also gives insight into the immaculate care taken to produce the Reserva wines. A special treat is walking up into the grape-laden, ready to... More

Average and medium service. We went their for a visit, but had to wait 10 minutes before getting helped. There was just a new group checking in and we could not join this group anymore as they were already 'checked in'. The woman in charge did not speak english (or pretended not too). Too bad, as we read good reviews.
