It's one of the biggest Bodegas in La Rioja, in the tiny town of Elciego. The bodega was remodelled recently and is now a tourist attraction with Frank Gehry's unique style. Visiting it is a must, but it lacks some of the charm smaller bodegas have. Great wine that you can buy cheaper than in stores.

The tour was very professional and interesting and we enjoyed seeing the impressive architecture of the hotel designed by Frank Gehry. Marques de Riscal is one of our favourite wines and the wine-tasting did not disappoint. We bought some lovely 2011 Rioja Reserva and Finca Montico Rueda in their wine shop as a souvenir. A very well organised bodega tour.

Marques de Riscal is one of the three famous Marques wineries around. It is in the middle of no where in a small town, but the architecture of Frank Gehry is stunning and blends in with the soil colour. If you don't do the tour, then your wine tatsing is limited as you have to purchase a glass of wine.... More

First of all, the famous architecture of Franc Gahry was amazing, we all were just excited to see it. The wine known as one of the most famous wine from Rioja was of course good. We went around in the tour in English and the tour guide was kind to teach us various things from the soil to the bottle.... More

Beautiful place, the premises are beautiful, the wine is out of this world, and the tour is not so good, but you still have got to do it. Although I am a native Spanish speaker, I took the English tour with my girlfriend (she's quite good in Spanish, but we still chose to take the English one), and although I... More

I must admit that I am more interested in drinking that stuff than seeing how it's made, and in having a close look to the stunning building.

This was my 4th Frank Gehry building and I wasnt disappointed. The purple wave representing the miles and miles of grapes around us was the distinguishing note. My teenage kids were less interested in the arquitecture than they were in the 5 course menu. Soooo much food, beautifully presented and delicious. Too bad it only came with one Crianza wine!...

Its the oldest vineyard in the area, with a beautiful property. We had a great tour guide, it was informative, and we enjoyed the wine. The hotel that they've built to 'compliment' the bodega was in a league of it own, a gorgeous Frank Gehry design.

The Marques de Riscal bodega tour was ok. There was a video to start and then we had the tour of the old and new bodega. The best part of the tour was seeing the hotel up close, very impressive. The old buildings too were also good to see. At the end of the visit we were given two wines... More

Good tour but too much video watching and no nice books, in English, to buy. A vintage chart would have been good in the shop.
