Superb place to stop for a couple of hours to take in this old winery and to see the incredible adjoining hotel (good luck getting a room) designed by Frank Gehry. You will have a wonderful time!!!

The wine city is amazing for its luxury hotel designed by Frank Geary who also designed the Bilbao Guggenheim, and there are definite similarities. The wine tour covers the very neat vineyards, cellars and a wine tasting. The tour can be arranged in English but only twice a day so booking is recommended.

Liked the tour but compared to other bodegas a bit corporate in feel and the guide although good not as good as other specialist wine guides I've been with.

We visited the Marques de Riscal winery on our recent tour of Rioja and although the visit was interesting, it was my least favorite one. The tour was interesting but it felt very commercial and we were part of a large group which made it less personal. I'd still recommend it if you are in the area but it's not... More

This winery is full of contradictions. On the surface is the flashy hotel designed by Frank Gehry in a style similar to that of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Underneath are cellars in which thousands of barrels of wine are stored. We had an interesting and informative tour around the cellars but this was followed by a very disappointing wine... More

We thought Cune was very professional but this place is another step up. Not only was our tour guide extremely well informed, and clear in her presentation, but she was backed up by a couple of very professionally prepared videos that explained the history of the winery and also described the wine making processing in simple language and graphics. This... More

The town is nice, the hotel is cool and the visit to the bodega was very interesting. We got a nice tour in English. The only downside was that the tasting included white wine, which is not made here. With slightly better tasting wines they could possibly sell some of the more expensive bottels.

One thing we found out about Spain, everyone loves to give you a tour of their winery... Well, this one is quite impressive. The architecture of the hotel is amazing and seeing it from a distance and then actually being there was just as impressive. The tour was excellent and quite informative but you will soon find out, wine is... More
