We were stunned by the beauty of the architectural gem that Frank Gehry has dreamed up for the luxury hotel building that sits atop this old La Rioja bodega. We love their wine, so the visit was a no-brainer for us. The tour, however, is not necessarily the most exciting from the ones we have witnessed thus far and relies... More

The property and architecture are amazing. The wine was delicious. Unfortunately, you only get to taste two wines but you can buy whatever you like at the cafe and I recommend doing just that. I cannot think of a better way to spend my time.

This seems to me almost to be the vinous equivalent of a dude ranch. Although a working winery the focus seems very much on passing visitors through the 'exhibition' and into buying in the gift shop or maybe making a booking at the hotel. The guide was completely misinformed about the purpose of a cork in a wine bottle suggesting... More

The building is incredible and awesome to behold. The wine tour was informative and great value as they are happy to show you every aspect of the process. It is the pinnacle of mass production and as a visitor you get a sense of the history of a small vineyard through to the global success it is today. If you're... More

Enjoyed this trip. Was complimentary with our hotel stay, so can't comment on value for money. Had obligatory video explaining wine making, but then really enjoyed the trip thro' the factory to see how the wine is actually made inc seeing the bottles getting cleaned up & labelled after storage. 2 glasses of wine available to taste. Also had lunch... More

The hotel, vineyards and setting was stunning but found the tour impersonal and corporate. I'd recommend going but just do some wine tasting and see the views.

The service is not the best at this place. We booked a 1:30pm tour that we realized was a Spanish tour, and they wouldn't switch us to an English tour at 10:30am. Instead we ended up on a Spanish tour, which was hard for non-Spanish speakers. I do like their videos on the making of wine, as well as the... More
