One of the truly amazing things about nature is the fact that its a force of its own. In fact, some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes are untouched by man. However, you can also find a blend of nature mixed with man-made design by visiting some of the world’s most beautiful parks and plantations, including vineyards. Visiting a winery is the perfect way to experience nature’s beauty while admiring some incredible landscaping – and sipping a glass of merlot while you’re at it. Here are some of the most beautiful vineyards found at wineries around the world.

If you love wine and Spanish culture, then visiting Marques de Riscal should definitely be on your bucket list. Most wineries have some type of building that functions as their production center. However, Marques de Riscal is not like most wineries, and they decided to take their headquarters to the next level. Hiring famous architect Frank O. Gehry, their estate currently includes a hotel as well as a Michelin-starred restaurant. Sounds like a dream vacation to us.
