Immerse yourself in the wine world

A visit to the Marqués de Riscal Wineries in Rioja Alavesa is to immerse yourself in an experience that combines wine-making tradition with avant-garde architecture, cuisine and culture. Located in Elciego, a charming village surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, Marqués de Riscal is not only a destination for wine lovers, but for anyone looking for a unique and enriching experience.

The experience at the Marqués de Riscal Hotel goes beyond the stay itself, as you will have the chance to take part in wine tastings guided by experts at the Marqués de Riscal winery. Exploring the vineyards, learning about the wine-making process and tasting the different varieties offered by the winery are activities that allow you to fully immerse yourself in the wine-making culture of the region.

When you arrive, the first thing that will surprise you is the building designed by architect Frank Gehry, known as the City of Wine. Its avant-garde design with sinuous shapes and brightly coloured titanium roofs contrasts with the traditional landscape of vineyards and mountains, creating a stunning visual fusion. It is an icon of modernity that houses the resort’s hotel, spa and restaurant.

Marqués de Riscal invites you to immerse yourself in the viticultural world through tours of its wine-making facilities, which range from the most historical to the most contemporary. During these visits, wine enthusiasts will have the opportunity to discover each stage of the wine-making process, starting with the delicate harvesting of the grapes and culminating with the bottling process. At the tastings, you will be offered the chance to savour a selection of the winery’s most emblematic wines, allowing visitors to appreciate the rich quality and diversity that distinguish Marqués de Riscal.
