We booked our visit for 6pm, so that could drive from Bilbao. The tour started on time and the guide's English was excellent. The tour is interesting, as they give you the history of the family, the winery and the art of wine making. After...More

We had a superb tour with guide Zane. She was friendly, spoke very good English, albeit in an American accent, and was very knowledgeable both with her standard spiel and in answering our questions. Highly recommended.

Well worth the visit. Our guide was very informative and the videos interspersed with the tour really give you a sense for the wine-making process. Marques de Riscal produces 9 million bottles of wine annually, so it's cool to see how this operation happens. There...More

The vinyard is a nice juxtaposition of old and new, with the traditional vinyard overshadowed by the 5 star designer hotel. Unfortunately we came for the wine tasting, only to be told we would only be able to do it after a 1.5 hour tour...More
