The Best Napa and Sonoma Valley Hotels

photo is coming soon

Although not all California wine is made in the Northern part of the state (quality wineries can be found near Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles) - Napa and Sonoma Valleys are infamous for their gorgeous wineries, resorts, inns, and lodges centered around the views of extraordinary natural beauty.

Around an hours drive North from San Francisco on Highway 29 is Napa Valley - which houses wineries such as Domaine Chandon, Sterling, Robert Mondavi, Beringer and St. Supery. Included in Napa are the towns of Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga.

West of the Napa Valley and bordering on the Pacific, Sonoma County also has amazing beauty and wineries. Included in Sonoma are Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, Glen Ellen and Petaluma. Wineries in the area include Buena Vista, Sebastiani and Sebastiani - just to name a few.

Below, Five Star Alliance has listed the most luxurious hotels, resorts, and inns in the California wine country. Whether you are going for a week or just the night - these properties will excite your senses.

Note Bene: Autumn is the best time to visit the Wine Country - that's when you can see the vines in full color and the harvest taking place.
