Design, art, gastronomy, 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 rooms. Two dining venues, including the Michelin-starred Marqués de Riscal Restaurant and the chic Bistró 1860 restaurant provide wonderful opportunities for epicurean indulgence.
