This is one of the most impressive entries in the architectural war raging in Rioja. The building (by Santiago Calatrava) is stunning, particularly from the outside, and fits its setting at the foot of the Cantabrian Mountains perfectly. The inside is more basic and relatively dark (except for the second floor tasting room), but that fits its function well. Our... More

Well this was the best Bodegas building I saw throughout the region. The building fits just perfectly into it's environment. You will also like the wine which is stored there. You will appreciate just how much money there is in wine. The surrounding landscape is just stunning.

If you do want to go in - make sure you book your English tour in advance. Booking online was simple at E12 for 1.5hrs. But you can take a lot of incredible photos from the outside.

Located in a very unique & modern designed building that can be seen from the hilltop village of Laguardia, this bodega has produced wine since 2001. Unlike some other bodegas in the area, you can not just drop in for a tasting or tour here...Reservations must be made online or over the phone to be included in a tour/tasting for... More

We booked a tour in advance and enjoyed a good hour and a half learning about the building, the architectural thoughts behind the design and the wine making process which was very modern. We had a knowledgeable and friendly guide who made the trip really interesting and we were made to feel very welcome. We were given a taste of... More

We have been visiting several architectural highlights (Portia by N Foster, Tondonia with the Hadid Shop, Marques de Riscal etc.) Ysios was disappointing - it is mainly a nice "storefront" and the surrounding is poorly maintained like the water basin in front (the sides and the back of the building a very are basic). There is now shadow anywhere and... More

We stayed in beautiful LaGuardia last week for a couple of nights. Our hotel tried booking a tour of the local Ysios bodegas the day before and on the morning we wanted to visit. They repeatedly called the number that Ysios publish for arranging such a tour however nobody answered. Undaunted we nevertheless rolled up just before the appointed tour... More

From the reviews that I've read prior to my trip to Rioja, my understanding with this winery was that it was not that visitor friendly. That was exactly what I experienced during my attempted visit. When we reached to the winery for just a look from the outside, we were warned that a private event was undergoing and it was... More

La Rioja is a special place in Spain, with special wine, unique to the region. A wine that has a musty aroma and palate, you know it's Rioja by this particular sense. Almost all Rioja's have it, something to look forward to in Spanish wines. You taste the wine of Spain, and only Spain in Rioja. I was gifted a... More
