We had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Marques de Riscal. Include with our stay was a visit to the Bodegas, but you can also purchase tickets to view the estate if you are not staying on property. The winery has a lot of history and it was interesting to see the variety of architecture housed on the estate spanning... More

I'm glad I went, just to see the Gehry hotel, but the wine tour was a bit too "mass marketing"......

Visiting a bodega is always a pleasure, but here you can also admire the fascinating hotel that the American star architect Frank Gehry designed for Marqués de Riscal. You want believe your eyes when you see Yris building.

They have one of the best video presentations and explanations of wine making I've seen. The buildings and vineyards are also very impressive. A must!

My time in the wine region of Spain was short, just 3 days but enough to know this was a waste of time. Our hosts brought us here but we left with the impression that their mission was to get you to think they are the best if the best... Producing over 5 million bottles a year should have been...

Havig visited wineries in various countries and done tours all around, this one was one of the best ever. Friendly lady whose English was very good, showed us nearly everything and knew a lot to tell about it all. We first saw a movie about the history of the bodegas and then went on our tour. We saw the hotel,... More

This is an absolutely beautiful bodega, the highlight of which is the Frank Gehry designed main building. We did the wine tour - it was quite fun with little titbits about the bodega's history etc. This should be a must visit for anyone staying in Logrono, it'll be a nice drive through the beautiful wine country.

I fell in love with this winery when I visited Rioja at the beginning of June. Absolutely gorgeous property and I thought the wine tour was great. Very detailed and informative. In addition the beautiful scenery on the grounds of Marques de Riscal were absolutely stunning. If you are going to travel to Rioja, you must make a stop to... More
