In the heart of the Marqués de Riscal wine cellars, a colossal project has been brought to life with the special contribution by the Canadian architect, Frank O. Gehry.
It gives shape to the cellars’ spirit – innovation and tradition are united in a single building. The hotel is made using the most modern materials and constitutes a true architectural landmark. Without a shadow of a doubt, the City of Wine is one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken in Spanish wine cellars to date.
The spectacular form of Frank O. Gehry’s building combined with the rich beauty of the landscape and the surrounding installations of Marqués de Riscal, offers an exceptional setting to live a unique and unmatchable experience. At the heart of the City of Wine you find Marqués de Riscal’s oldest cellars dating back to 1858, as well as its later 1883 extension. Surrounded by extensive vineyards, the installations preserve this special charm from its origins, the manifest worship of this tiny gem, the mother of wine: the grape.
The 100,000 m2 complex known as the ‘City of Wine’ is devoted to making, caring for and studying wine; offering you the chance to enjoy everything that wine and the people involved in winemaking stand for, in the purest and most natural way.
