Winery Architecture: Rioja

Wine & Architecture Luxury Tour Rioja

Bilbao is the Basque region’s industrial capital, as well as its largest city, and its transformation over the last few decades is an urban planner’s version of a miracle. This architectural journey will show you the transformation of the Alhondiga, the first wine exchange built in 1905 and completely renovated by Philippe Stark, while enjoying a wine tasting of a personal selection of local wines. Of course, you won’t leave Bilbao without visiting the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art designed by famous architect Frank Gerhy in 1997 that seduces with its curved silver and golden lines, for an in-depth exploration of the permanent and temporary exhibitions, according to your preferences.

Design is waiting for you in Rioja, a world away only one hour from Bilbao. Spend two great days admiring incredible buildings in the middle of the vineyards signed by Frank O. Gehry, Philippe Mazières or Zaha Hadid, and have a chance to learn from passionate winemakers in exclusive private visits. Taste terrific wines and discover small charming villages from Middle Ages.
