Top 10 Wine Country Inns Worldwide

The exterior of Hotel Marqués de Riscal in Spain was designed by Frank Gehry


Hotel Marqués de Riscal, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Dating from circa 1858, the original Marqués de Riscal winery has been incorporated into the innovative City of Wine, a Frank Gehry-designed complex featuring historic cellars and two gourmet restaurants: Marques de Riscal, which serves modern takes on the classic cuisine of northern Spain; and Bistro 1860, which offers comforting regional fare in a casual setting. The centerpiece of the property, though, is the hotel — a living work of art with billowing canopies of pink, gold and silver titanium. Located in the heart of Rioja wine country, Gehry's masterpiece features 43 stunning guest rooms and suites, a rooftop lounge, the library with vineyard views and an outpost of Vinothérapie Spa Caudalie, where grape extracts figure prominently in the luscious treatments.
