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.

The winery tour was informative and part of our hotel stay. Wine tasting was a great way to end the tour .

We bought tickets for the tour primarily to see architect Frank Gehry's gorgeously designed hotel for Marques de Riscal winery but the well-organized and well-presented tour on their winemaking was equally outstanding. The audio-visuals are first rate and the guide was charming and enthusiastic. If you are in the Rioja region this is the winery to visit!

I was already aquainted with their flagship wine, but knew little of their winery, absolutely amazing!!! The hotel built by Gehry out there in the middle of nowhere is just subliminal!!!! The tour was very good and the wine, well what can I say, it was already one of my favourites before the tour!!!

Excellent value tour that gives you a good impression of the winemaking process. The guide's English was very good and they are generous with the wine tasting at the end. The restaurant 1860 was a tad too formal for my liking, but the 50 euro set menu did include a bottle of wine and an excellent creme' brulee. Was a... More
