Elciego: Hotel Marques de Riscal - 06/24/14 05:50 AM

Marques de Riscal operates a Frank Gehry designed hotel in the town of Elciego. If you're a wine lover, this place is worth a stop, even if you don't stay in the hotel. They have the "Ciudad de Vino" with tours that will inform and amaze. Vineyards are planted practically up to the doors. The people are very knowledgeable and cheerful. The hotel itself is a wonder to see. It's not very large but something that captures the imagination. We sat the bar for a few glasses of wine and tiny snack. The view is great, too. As I said, for wine lovers, this is a must see.

glad you enjoy it, very modernistic approach. Marqués de Riscal is one of the most avant garde wine labels in Spain for years.
enjoy the Rioja.
