Our love for Spain. Where to begin.

Well this photo story was on the Riojas wine region of Spain in Alava. It's as much a modern architectural feast as it is home of some of the best wines in Europe. Century old cellars rub shoulders with bold modern architecture for bodegas and futuristic hotels, such as Frank Gehry's Hotel Marques de Riscal, where they serve wine facials with their wine.

Spain's superstar architect Santiago Calatrava has made his limitless mark on the landscape with the otherworldly Bodegas Ysios.

Logroño, the administrative capital and the center of the Rioja wine district has been the centre for the wine trade for centuries. Its home of the best Tapas in Spain that we've experienced so far. A tapas bar the only serves fresh mushrooms sizzling, drizzled with olive oil of course, and wine. More wine.
