After their hyped and high-octane openings, many luxury lodgings are content to rest on their laurels. Not so at Meadowood. Originally a private country club, circa 1964, this thoroughly modern and tastefully decadent resort keeps getting better. While the property does not have a winery itself, it is owned by vintners and was created to serve as a hub for winemakers. What this means for guests is a full immersion into the world of varietals: afternoon tastings of reds and whites, sparkling wine on Friday afternoons and daily opportunities to meet vintners. With a local focus, The Restaurant at Meadowood offers creative, evolving fare, and the fresh menu at The Grill plucks ingredients straight from the gardens out back. In addition, guests enjoy a lavish spa, tennis courts, two pools and chic suites, cottages and lodges, most with fireplaces and woodland views.
