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, made using the most modern materials and constituting 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 to house the hotel, 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, and all in this exceptional place called the City of Wine.
A complex set in around 100,000 m2 devoted to making, caring for and studying wine which offers you the chance to enjoy everything that wine and the people involved in winemaking stand for, in the purest and most natural way. In a nutshell, a dierent, profound experience of the culture of wine and its essence.
At the heart of the City of Wine, what else but the oldest of the cellars of Marqués de Riscal, dating from 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.
