Hotel Marqués de Riscal

Calle Torrea 1, 6 km (4 miles) southwest of Laguardia, Elciego, 01340, Spain

Frank Gehry's post-Guggenheim Iberian eruption of genius looks as if a colony from outer space had taken up residence (or crashed) in the middle of one of La Rioja's oldest vineyards. The jumble of pink and gold titanium and stainless-steel sheets curves around rectilinear sandstone surfaces. Inside, the rooms feature innovative design, ultramodern luxury, and far-reaching views. The winery's visitor center, the historic cellars, and the rolling hills offering activities from horseback riding to golf keep visitors well entertained. The spa provides new ways to use grape juice, while the Michelin-star Marqués de Riscal gourmet restaurant and the more traditional Bistró 1860 more than take care of all culinary needs and tastes.
