Bodega de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal, as it is officially named, is located in the village of Elciego, within the Rioja Alavesa sub-area. It owns 500 hectares of vineyards and controls another 1,000 to produce more than six million bottles a year.

A century and a half after it was founded, Marqués de Riscal is known worldwide for the coloured curves of the hotel designed by Frank Gehry. Winelovers, however, prefer to dream of its historical cellar (The Cathedral) which stores bottles from every vintage since the first harvest in 1862.
