The exclusivity of the winery’s creations is reflected in the Hotel Marqués de Riscal itself. A spectacular building constructed by none other than Frank Gehry, the hotel embodies true modernity and innovation, set against the backdrop of an old, traditional winery. The 43 rooms have the most luxurious amenities, and you can book a tour of the winery, a wine tasting or even a horse ride through the vineyards along with your hotel reservation.

Marqués de Riscal,
The beginning of this winery dates back to 1858, when Marqués de Riscal Don Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, a resident of Bordeaux since 1836, was asked by the Diputación Foral de Álava to hire a French wine expert to train local producers in the winemaking processes used in the Médoc, a region in western France notorious for exquisite wine. Since then, the winery has won numerous awards for its creations and prides itself on the manual selection benches for grapes, implemented in 1995.
