The tour is about an hour. You see the entire process and videos explaining some sections, like the grape picking and sorting that might not be going on. The videos are excellent quality and very informative. The tasting at the end included one red wine...More

We visited here to see the hotel and taste wines, but decided to take a tour on our hotel's recommendation. They were right--outstanding tour. Of more than 50 such tours I have been on worldwide--this was the best combination of fun, information and interest inspiring...More

Well worth the visit. Our guide was very informative and the videos interspersed with the tour really give you a sense for the wine-making process. Marques de Riscal produces 9 million bottles of wine annually, so it's cool to see how this operation happens. There...More

The vinyard is a nice juxtaposition of old and new, with the traditional vinyard overshadowed by the 5 star designer hotel. Unfortunately we came for the wine tasting, only to be told we would only be able to do it after a 1.5 hour tour...More

This was a wonderful experience both for the winery tour and the ability to view Frank Gehry's amazing building up close. The tour had a nice pace and didn't feel rushed. Our guide was friendly, informative, and spoke great English. The little display vineyard seemed...More

We joined a tour and found it so informative. Our guide was great, able to explain all the workings of the bodegas. The sheer number of bottles that produce each year is amazing as was the cellar that housed millions of bottles of wine. We...More

Plan ahead - you can't see the Frank Gehry building unless you buy a tour ticket at €12 euros or more, you may also need to wait several hours before you can commence your tour. It is not possible to appreciate the building from a...More

A large commercial Bodega making average wine. Unless you take the tour you are not allowed to taste anything or see anything. Can buy wine at the bar or in the large commercial shop. Not a place for wine affecianados. Go to Eguren Ugarte instead.

When we were there in the summer there were very limited times and we booked in advance. People were turned away that just showed up. While there is a train in the area it's not easy to get around without a car so I'd... More
