The Rooftop Lounge and Library at Hotel Marqués de Riscal

Dating back to 1858, the original Marqués de Riscal winery has been incorporated into the innovative The City of Wine, a complex featuring historic vineyards and two gourmet restaurants: Marques de Riscal, which serves the cuisine of northern Spain, and Bistro 1860, presenting Spanish fare with a modern twist. The centerpiece of the property, though, is the hotel — a living work of art with its billowing canopies of pink, gold and silver titanium. Located in the heart of the Rioja wine region, Frank Gehry's masterpiece features 43 stunning guest rooms and suites, a rooftop bar and lounge, a wine library and an outpost of Spa Vinothérapie Caudalie, where grapes figure prominently in the luscious treatments.
