100,000 Visitors in 2017 for Marqués de Riscal Winery

This robust figure represents a twenty-fold increase in visitors to this Rioja winery since 2005, the year before the striking Hotel Marqués de Riscal opened.

Of course it’s not surprising that the opening of this now-iconic hotel should have such a huge impact on visitor numbers, given that it was designed by celebrated American architect Frank Gehry and surrounded by the stunning countryside of one of the world's most famous wine regions, Rioja.

Even so, 100,000 visitors a year is nothing to sneeze at, particularly given the fact that they hail from every corner of Spain and all over the world. While approximately three-quarters of visitors in 2017 came from Spain – particularly the Autonomous Communities of Madrid, Barcelona, La Rioja, Basque Country, Navarre, the Valencian Community, Aragón and Andalusia – the winery's international visitors represent the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Canada, Australia, China and Sweden, respectively.

Located in the town of Elciego (Álava province), Marqués de Riscal was a pioneering force in wine tourism in Spain, thanks to the 2006 inauguration of La Ciudad del Vino (Gehry’s City of Wine), where visitors can tour the original winery (founded in 1858), be bowled over by the architecture of the Hotel Marqués de Riscal, relax in the Spa Vinotherapie® Caudalie wine spa, and enjoy the Michelin-star meal prepared in its restaurant – under the careful consultation of award-winning Spanish chef Francis Paniego.

A worldwide name in Spanish wine, Marqués de Riscal winery sells its products in one-hundred and ten countries around the globe.
