Hotel Marqués de Riscal Review

Frank Gehry's latest Iberian eruption of genius looks as if a colony from outer space had taken up residence (or crashed) in the middle of La Rioja's oldest vineyards. The jumble of pink and gold titanium sheets and stainless steel curves around rectilinear sandstone surfaces looks like a pile of gift wrap. Inside, the rooms feature innovative design, ultra-modern 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 Marqués de Riscal gourmet restaurant and the more traditional Bistró 1860 more than take care of all culinary needs and tastes.
