Hotel in Spain by Antonio Banderas - sounds like a real exotics. Meanwhile, the famous Hollywood macho seriously thinks about building the hotel on its vineyards in the north of Spain. Antonio Banderas wants to hold conferences for winemakers in the new hotel, in order to share with them his experience in the production of wine. This is what the actor said in a recent interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

The new hotel, according to Banderas’ plan, will be able to simultaneously perform several functions: to bring income as a tourist real estate and serve as additional advertising to his brand wines. Banderas does not hide his ambitions and firmly expects to strengthen the position in the markets of Spain and Europe, and then enter the wine market of the U.S.
