26 reviews of Marqués de Riscal Winery

Dreamlike Games

Elciego was not one of the places we were planning to visit, but its location in the road that took us to the region of Laguardia (where our hotel was) made us stop in the way.

Suddenly one remembers how impressive Frank Gerhy’s work is, and one must stop and admire it. I’ve never had this feeling of “paparazzi” before, which is what we felt because we had no reservation and the access is limited to clients. With our camera ready, we tried every possible way to immortalize the futurist work of art. This is what comes from travel without planning, but at least we could enjoy the exterior of this amazing and titanic architecture that floods the landscape of the Rioja Alavesa.

A Town in Álava

In the town in Álava, Elciego, the company Herederos del Marqués de Riscal, has built their new winery, a hotel and a museum, all part of an ambitious project called “City of Wine”.

Without a doubt, the building certainly catches your attention from afar. It was built by Frank Gehry and it is a building full of light and color, dynamic and built with stone, titanium, wood and crystal. Its characteristic note is the color that makes reference to the wine and the corporative colors of the winery.

The visit is quite interesting, where you not only learn about the history of the wineries but also about the building itself, highlighting facts that are not obvious at first glance.
