Marqués de Riscal allows you to visit the winery, but if you want to visit the hotel, you have to be a guest or have a reservation for the restaurant.
The building is lifted above the site on columns combined with sweeping panels of gold and pink titanium, and mirror finish strainless steel.
The entry plaza leads to the recepcion area and the bar. An outdoor terrace leads to a small pool and a covered walkway, allowing visitors to overlook the wineyards and the surrounding region.
The hotel offers 43 guest bedrooms, a wine tasting room, a restaurant and conference facilities.
