The Best Wine Country Hotels in America

Once upon a time, a wine lover had to head to Napa and Sonoma for a memorable (not to mention comfortable) U.S. wine country vacation. While we're certainly not knocking Northern California — it is home to some of our favorite wineries — America's growing viticultural landscape means more accessibility than ever before. There's hardly a state left that doesn't have at least one officially recognized American Viticultural Area. More and more, farmers are turning their lands over to grapes and as a result, there is a boom in chic wine country inns and charming resorts. These properties, which take food and wine pairings to new levels, are among our favorite destinations, which is why GAYOT's list of Top 10 Wine Country Inns in the U.S. is filled with sophisticated lodgings with more than a hint of luxury.
