The Meritage is a lot of things, combining a hotel and a winery with multiple restaurants, bars, and wine tasting experiences in one vast compound. Situated on a private nine-acre vineyard operated by Trinitas Cellars, Meritage offers the opportunity to indulge in signature wines at the private tasting room and to stroll through the vineyards with your furry friends (pets are welcome)—grab goods to go from Fivetown Grocery for a perfect picnic spread. For a more guided experience, join a 1.5-mile Saturday morning hike, or pop into a Sunday morning yoga session on the vineyard deck. At the heart of the Meritage lies The Village, an expansive lawn encircled by tasting rooms from Napa Valley boutique wineries including Gen 7 Wines and Anarchist Wine Co. // 875 Bordeaux Way (Napa), meritageresort.com

Four Seasons Napa | Calistoga

A Four Seasons resort set on a working winery? Hand us a glass. Opened in 2021, the Calistoga hotel is one of the most luxurious in Wine Country. You've got all the amenities you'd expect from a Four Seasons, plus the prime perk of the onsite Elusa Winery, led by famed Napa winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, who lives nearby. A decade in the making, Elusa specializes in cabernet sauvignon, organically farmed on the nearly five acres of fields that you can see from every room. Wake up to sunrises over the vines, visit the tasting room, take a dip in the heated pool, book a treatment at the spa, and dine at the two on-site restaurants. // 400 Silverado Trail N.
