Napa Valley

Wine Country A pitch-perfect mix of wineries, restaurants, and decidedly sybaritic hotels makes this the ultimate wine-lover’s escape. But the best part: there’s always something new to discover in the valley. Celebrity chef Michael Chiarello’s Bottega Napa Valley (dinner for two $95) remains a popular date-night destination in the town of Yountville. The menu is Italian, with dishes such as Sonoma duck confit with wild mustard greens. Just a half-hour drive north, in Angwin, Cade Winery produces vintages in a solar-powered steel-and-wood space. The classics are still a draw, including Angèle (dinner for two $100), a wood-beamed bistro on the Napa River, and Round Pond Estate, known for its robust Cabernets. Check in to the light-filled Auberge du Soleil (doubles from $550), where the rooms-large stone fireplaces; private hot tubs-are made for couples. Or consider the intimate Poetry Inn (doubles from $1,030, including breakfast), set on a pastoral hillside, where guests are greeted with a wine and cheese pairing.
