  • The entrance we cost about €24 per couple, make a short tour of the hotel to enter. They tell you nothing more to enter is a private enclosure and that photos can be but it cannot be recorded on video. If you want to enter to see the hotel without paying take it head. You get movies with the history of the winery, they teach you the wine making, much fusion of technology with tradition. They have the harvest of the King and all, we note the luxury. The visit is quite short, then a tasting of two wines, one white Verdejo, and a reserve of red of Marqués de Riscal. People ate it peaks before the wine tasting. The girl who guided us very nice.

  • We hired a tour of €12 to visit the winery and were lucky to be only at that time. Our guide, Nerea, explained everything in great detail and answered all our questions, super friendly and very professional. It is worth visiting it since it is very enlightening if you're not a great wine connoisseur. At the end of the tour they offer you a tasting wheel and reserve. Highly recommended!

  • -Historical Winery in a fantastic complex of 100,000 m2 called the city of the wine formed by the ancient winery (1858), new winery (which includes various facilities and a shop), vineyards, a 5-star hotel designed by architect Frank Gehry (the same one from the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao) and 2 restaurants. I visited this place last August of 2016... -Organized tours to the Winery every day of the year (in several languages), but it is imperative upon reservation. Visit lists Winery and also conducted a tasting of wines; the price of that visit is 10 €/ person. -At the entrance to the venue, in new installations of Winery is a very well assembled and appealing shop watch with a great variety of products; that Yes, that nobody expects to find bargains because on the contrary, the prices of the wines occurs equal to or greater than outside the winery - vineyards view is very nice (I was in August and the vines were full of leaves). From the estate where there is a beautiful view of the village of Elciego, especially from the area of the hotel. -Is a very visited place in the there are numerous activities framed within the so-called "Wine tourism". -LOCATION: C / Torrea, 1 in Elciego (Álava), in the rioja alavesa. To get I did it through the AP-68 (Bilbao-Zaragoza), I took the exit 10 direction ashtray/Najera and Elciego. The GPS coordinates are: N 42.511635 and W 2.617865. Be the car in a parking area that exists at the entrance of the complex. -My impression: it may not be pleasant. The visit is well-organized, is very comfortable to perform, and is formative; on the other hand, the visit to the vineyards that are integrated into the grounds of the Winery is nice, they are very careful and from them and the cellar there is a wonderful view of the beautiful village of Elciego as well as stunning, and highly original, 5 star hotel the work of Frank Gehry, which lies inside the winery complex and which also is accessible during the visit to this. I think a highly recommended visit because it is also one of the historical and most beautiful wineries. -IT +: all general although if have of highlight something it formative of the visit and them views from the winery (of his environment, of the village of Elciego far and of the beautiful hotel). -IT-: the price of the wine in the cellar shop, equal to or more expensive than in the street.
