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

The Gehry design of this bodegas is your intro to this large but interesting winery. You do need to book your tour in advance and specify the language you need. Our tour guide was a charming, funny Rumanian woman who was lively and enthusiastic. The tour was informative but not unlike many I have taken in the Napa Valley, but... More

You see the inner workings of a modern winery and the English tours provide a knowledgeable guide and two well done short movies about the history of the vineyard and how they make the wine. Oh, and you get to do some tasting too!

We have been on several wine tours in the US but as good as this one. The winery buildings are very old but beautifully maintained. The tasting includes a white and tempranillo. Be sure to book an English tour ahead of time. We didn't eat at their Michelin 1 star restaurant bit hears it was great.

A visit to Bodegas Marques de Riscal is a travel to the roots of Riojan winemaking and an ultimate experience. Frank Gehry design hotel is a must see and must feel. I enjoyed being guided around the Bodega. However the whole experience seemed a little distant and too much perfectionist which took out the spirit and made it somewhat mechanic.... More

The only reason we came to visit the winery was to get a tour of the hotel (designed by the well-known Frank Gehry). I also attempted to book a room in the hotel six months before our trip and was told it was totally booked. I communicated with the winery well over a month before the tour date. I received... More

This was our favourite vineyard trip because the hotel is such a beautiful structure and we had the full tour which explained more about the wines but also about why the hotel was built and how one of the worlds most famous architects came to work in Logrono

My husband and I had the Marques de Riscal wine for our wedding day, so when in the Rioja region it was an obvious tour. Being English speakers we were limited to timings, that was also likely to be as we were mid-week and out of season. Having said that, it was just the two of us on the tour... More
