Located in the medieval town of Elciego, the Hotel Marques de Riscal is the ideal starting point from which to explore the nature, tradition, and exquisite gastronomy found in The City of Wine.
Three couples will spend three luxurious nights at Hotel Marques de Riscal in Rioja complete with a tour and tasting of the winery surrounding the property. Since its unveiling in 2006, this masterpiece created by Frank Gehry to house the Hotel Marqués de Riscal has become a highly sought after contemporary, luxury retreat. Design, art, wine and the lush landscape all combine to create a memorable sojourn at The City of Wine. The hotel’s luxurious interior bears the unmistakable stamp of Gehry’s design. Tilted walls, zigzag windows, cathedral-height ceilings and a host of bespoke details create the impression of accommodation as a work of art in its 43 rooms & suites.
As if the stunning architecture of Hotel Marques de Riscal isn’t enough, the next stop is arguably Frank Gehry’s most famous design, Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. More than two decades after its grand opening in October 1997, the Museum is a reality that has exceeded the most ambitious artistic and cultural expectations, and has contributed in an extraordinary way to the urban, economic, and social regeneration of the city of Bilbao and its surroundings. The Museum building is a large sculpture made of titanium, limestone, and glass and has become the most recognizable icon of the city of Bilbao.
Three more nights will be spent in the heart of Barcelona at Hotel Majestic, a five-star luxury hotel. Experience a relaxing day in the countryside with plenty of wine tasting during a day trip to some of the top wineries outside Barcelona. Head to the Penede`s region, where you’ll visit some of the most famous wineries of Catalonia, stopping to taste and learn about the production of the area’s many vintages and cava, Catalan sparkling wine, along the way.
