  • Quality and quantity of food and exceptional accommodation. Location: 10. However, given the category of the establishment, I missed missing a room can use of breastfeeding (a Chair in a small space) or so that the bride might leave gifts, changed clothes, etc. The solution to the 'breastfeeding room' was to put a Chair in the toilet (lack of delicacy and apparent disregard for the needs of a baby.) The toilet at the wedding ends indecent...). In my opinion, the solution - that is insisted on that he came, weeks before the wedding - was simple.

  • If you're in the area, don't miss it. An hour of guided tour where you learn the entire process of wine and you end up with a tasting. All this within a winery, q more that a winery looks like a village. The Gehry building leaves you speechless! We went with 5 children and the visit was entertaining even for them, and at the end they gave with grape juice! Children up to 10 years are free and adults pay € 16. It is worth much!

  • Visit where you can appreciate fully the essence of wine. A team of very serious and professional guides. Traditional and modern facilities. The children are taken into account at all times and are treated with equal interest. Our visit was on March 25 at 1:00 PM question time with green credentials. The guide had full knowledge of wine and the facilities, there is no improvisation. World class facilities. Its popularity is well deserved. It is an architectural jewel both modern and ancient. A treasure in La Rioja Alavesa.

  • We were gladly surprised by the visit to the winery for two reasons: First of all, our guide made evident how passionate she was about the place, its history and its activity, as she knew from historical anecdotes to technical matters, making the visit very interesting and informative. Secondly, the facilities are cared for and extremely clean. Everything looked like it have had a fresh coat of paint recently. Maybe it was not the most original winery we have seen, but the esteem of the workers to the place and the investment in top notch facilities and machinery bouche for the quality of the product.
  • Best vines in Rioja. It has a hotel also designed by the same architect that designed the Guggenheim of Bilbao. Great tour of the winery with at the end of the tour a wine tasting session, a must visit.
  • It's too much massificate, the service (shop, bar and guides) are completely rude with the customers. It has been my second time here, but I recommend any other local winery (there are so many) before this one. The service and the people is working here were totally rude to me and my wife more than 2 times. :(
  • We had an excellent tour by Zane in impeccable English. She was very friendly & happy to answer any questions no matter how obscure! €12 for 90 min tour including 2 wine tastings.
  • If you visit Rioja because of the wine, you must visit Marques de Riscal complex. There you'll find a great hotel, spa and wine cellar with a guided tour. It's not just for the wine but for the infrastructure they have.
