The Marques Riscal is the oldest and most traditional winery dating back to 1858 in the Rioja region, an area known for its wine and vineyards. This winery is home to the famous Marques de Riscal Hotel completed in 2006 by the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao designer – Frank Gehry. The Hotel is a modern oxymoron with its contemporary architecture placed against a back drop of green rolling hills and vast mountain range.
Visitors from all over the globe visit this luxury retreat to tour its vintage cellars, learn about and taste the renowned La Rioja wine or experience the one of a kind Vinotherapie Spa by Caudalie. In the Hotel’s spa, guests may enjoy a variety of wine treatments utilizing the health and beauty properties of the grape, including a wine therapy bath, grape facial scrub or Merlot body wrap. Although nothing can top the La Rioja wine tastings and scenic grounds of the vineyard.
