Explore the City of Wine

Located in the medieval town of Elciego, the Hotel Marques de Riscal and its surrounding City of Wine provide the ideal starting point from which to explore the nature, tradition and exquisite gastronomy associated with wine. From the Marqués de Riscal's winery itself, the area’s first wine cellar built in 1858, to the Museo del Vino Dinastía Vivanco, Europe’s largest wine museum, to the nearby villages of La Guardia and Cenicero where ancient wine-making rituals continue today—guests may expect to stimulate their senses and satisfy their thirst for adventure. The Santiago Pilgrimage route—representing centuries of European history—passes only a few kilometres from the hotel. The area is also ideal for a bike ride or stroll through rolling vineyards and along the Ebro river, the longest in Spain. Our Luxury Collection Concierge will be pleased to assist guest with recommended day trips and guided tours.

Rooftop Lounge & Library

Perched on the top floor of Frank Gehry’s architectural masterpiece, The Library is a contemporary space perfect for chilling-out with a coffee, cocktail or glass of wine at any time of day. Those interested in learning more about the region, its wine production, and its history will love the floor-to-ceiling bookcase filled with beautiful and informative literary works. During cooler months, the caramel leather sofas and armchairs in front of the fireplace are the perfect spots to retire to with a hot chocolate or a cocktail. When the sun shines, admire the estate’s natural beauty from the large outdoor terrace suspended among the titanium waves swirling over the building’s exterior.
