Ciudad del Vino – City of Wine, located in Elciego (Alava), is a complex comprising the oldest winery of Rioja, the winery of Marqués de Riscal (1858) and the new landmark complex, which houses a hotel, a spa of wine therapy, an exclusive restaurant, a meeting and conference center and a banquet hall. Like the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the building is covered with titanium. In this case, however, the architect wanted to infuse his work with the signature colors of Marqués de Riscal: pink like the wine, gold like the mesh on the Riscal bottles, and silver like the bottle top."It's a marvelous creature, with hair flying everywhere, which launches itself over the vineyards," Gehry, 82, was quoted. The Marqués de Riscal Hotel, The Luxury Collection, is operated by the Startwood Hotels & Resorts group. It includes a vinotherapie spa, Caudalie Vinothérapie, where visitors can enjoy treatments that combine mineral rich hot spring water and the extracts of the grape and wine, rich in polyphenols.
