The City of Wine is located in Elciego, among medieval towns, where the winemaking tradition, nature, the exquisite cuisine and the splendid views perfectly complement each other to stimulate your senses. A region full of possibilities and a few miles away from major cities like Bilbao, Vitoria and Logroño.
The expansive vineyard, dates back to 1858, making Marqués de Riscal the oldest winery in the region. Guests can learn more about wine-making on one of the daily tours of the vineyard’s state-of-the-art facilities. The fascinating journey from grapevine to bottle unfolds as visitors make their way from fermenting rooms to aging rooms stacked high with oak barrels to the enormous cellar housing eight million bottles of wine. A veritable viticulture ‘cathedral’, the cellar contains vintages dating back to 1862.
Further afield the region is rich in Spanish history and viniculture experiences and well worth more extensive exploration. Just a short drive away is Europe’s largest wine museum, Dinastía Vivanco, and the medieval town of La Guardia where age-old wine making traditions are faithfully upheld.
