Good experience

This was a very good experience at our first vineyard but found the one and a half hours a bit on the long side.

We visited the bodega as part of our stay in the hotel. We took the 4pm tour with an English speaking guide who's knowledge of the bodega and the processes involved was very good. Having not really visited vineyards before I have nothing to compare it to, but I found the visit educational and interesting. The wine tasting at the... More

Great tour offered by the hotel - a bit of marketing for the hotel but once you have got through that very informative about the Bodegas and the processes used to produce the wine. Our guide was excellent and paced the tour well so we felt able to ask questions and absorb the wonderful feeling of the place. There is... More

Very nicely organised visit; even for teens/children; it is clear that it is not a personal visit. Main attraction is the building and the views.

Tour was good but you can tell its a daily walk through with typical tour guide. Tasting was ok but basic and everything required $$. Lots of products available for purchase but felt very commercial - more like a hotel/spa than an old world vineyard. I would recommend it - the hotel by Gehry is interesting but not my style....

We drove from Bilbao to visit this facility. The hotel and site are spectacular. Designed by the same architect that designed the Guggenheim, this tour was fun and informative. Oh yeah, the wines were great also !!!

This was a reasonably interesting tour but it did feel too much at the beginning like a marketing exercise for the hotel rather than a wine tour. If not staying at the hotel it's worth doing to see the hotel. But if staying at the hotel it feels too blatantly like a marketing exercise for those who are not. However... More

The winery tour is similar to other wineries, but with the plus of visiting Ghery's building. It's well worth the visit and you can combine with visiting Laguardia too (walled town, 5 minutes drive away). You will get a more traditional taste there, or in Haro. They have a very good video explaining the whole fermentation process. Well prepared for... More

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"......
