In the heart of the wineyards Vinos de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal, located in Elciego, in the Rioja region of Spain, rises a new gem designed by Frank Gehry: Hotel Marqués de Riscal.

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.
