The "City of Wine"

Architect Frank Gehry has designed a hotel, spa and restaurant for Spanish winemaker Marques de Riscal in Rioja. Dubbed the City of Wine, the building definitely has Gehry's signature style all over it--lots and lots of curvy metal, with no sharp corners or angles in sight. The colors of the building's roof (red, gold and silver), represent wine, the mesh around the bottle and the foil, respectively.

There are several other hotels in northern Spain designed to attract wine lovers.
