Our Top Ten Wine + Architecture

Most of our guests ask us for advice on wineries when planning their stay in Casa Josephine, so we decided to post a list of our Top-Ten favorite wineries in Rioja region. All these wineries are very near our house (from 10 to 45 minutes driving). They have been carefully selected for their artistic value, for the quality of their wine and for their attention to visitors.
Hours have been spent preparing this list, and much (much, oh much) wine has been tasted while pondering.
Our Ten Favorites:
1-López de Heredia, Haro.
2-Juan Alcorta, Logroño.
3-Baigorri, Samaniego.
4-Regalía, Ollauri.
5-Marqués de Riscal, Elciego.
6-Ysios, Laguardia.
7-Finca Valpiedra, Fuenmayor.
8-CVNE, Haro.
9-Bodegas Bilbaínas, Haro.
10-Viña Real, Laguardia.

Thank you for posting these stunning photos of winery architecture! Love wines from Rioja but have never visited there. One day, I hope . . .

thanks for the list, most of which I agree with of course, but I would say that you have missed off the Dinastia Vivanco Museum and Winery.

I would recommend it for a visit for the stunning facilities and the customer service (if these are your criteria), even if they did not focus on the exterior of the building quite as much as some of the others you mention.
