The first sight of this winery is stunning - amazing Calatrava building with the mountain backdrop. The tour (which is supposed to be booked ahead - but they kindly squeezed us in at the last minute) covers both the amazing building and all the stages in the wine making. There was nothing obvious going on while we were there (maybe... More

Very interesting to learn about the winery and the inspiration behind the architecture. One of the shorter tour options. Worth visiting the building even if you do not do the tour.

The visit at the building is on its own worth going, beautifully set with mountains background. The winery is modern and produces only reservas. Nice staff, the visit was pleasant , especially the final tasting at the central room.

We have visited Rioja several times but this Bodegas tour was a highlight. Very knowledgeable guide and great tasting. The building is impressive and the hospitality excellent.

This is located in the beautiful city of Laguardia. . .the building is modern and the new trend in wineries. . .build a great building but I feel more people visit because of the architecture than because of the wine! The tour is typical of the region (long, and you need to make a reservation before-hand and includes a tasting... More

Designed by Calatrava, the building looks fabulous close-up and from a distance -- we stayed in the nearby hill-town of Laguardia which has a great view of the winery. The tour was nice, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, and the tour included a tasting at the end. Be sure to book on-line in advance. We also recommend seeing another,... More

A building you cannot miss from far, it is as impressive from the outside as the inside. We had a great tour and our guide showed lots of passion for the company, their philosophy and its wines. The tasting contained two red wines with small bites. A good explanation was given of how you should taste the wines.

Pros Amazing building Polished tour with good information Cons Average wine Long tour 75 minutes Only two tastes --the last two may be normal for area If you like Napa you will like this. 5/5 because it achieves its goal. Drive by for pics if nothing else.

Fabulous looking building and very 'perfect' looking inside, designed around the Egyptian pyramids. Informative tour of the wine making process. We asked our hotel to book us in, having read other reviews. Two couples on our tour hadn't apparently booked (or booking not received) and we observed they were treated in a slightly condescending manner, but were able to join... More

Amazing building, give yourself time to walk around outside before the tour. Informative tour, interesting production method but a bit cold and sterile in comparison to other wineries. Excellent guide who then took us to this amazing room upstairs in the front of the building for our wine tasting. The views were stunning and there were lounges and tables and... More
