  • Visit enjoyable, educational and easy to understand for us as non-expert in wines. Quite professional guide made the time pass quickly. You visit ends with a tasting of two of its wines. The place is not indifferent.

  • But very crowded. We liked everything but soon that gave us to ask questions and the tasting was accelerated because arrived the next group. The rest ok.

  • Good visit with history and production process of the wine. Very nice guide perhaps missed us see the vineyards, but in general very well

  • 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.
  • Best memory of my trip to Spain. Wonderful people fantastic wine.
  • I loved this place! The tour is really well organised, with great videos illustrating the wine making process. The place is insane! The old cellars but also the modern building are amazing! A must visit if you are in the area. No need to mention the wine taste! I wish I could buy boxes and boxes of it!
