Finding a getaway that lives up to your grape expectations can be tough, but this week's Escape to the Russian River Valley is up to the challenge. Pour yourself a one-night getaway to Guerneville's award-winning Applewood Inn, featured in more than 40 magazines and newspapers.

For $255, you and a fellow wine aficionado will stay for one night, Sundays through Thursdays, in a small or midsize room (Arezzo, Firenze, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Grosseto, Livorno, Pistoia, or Prato Room). For an additional $50, upgrade to a junior suite.

Before you check-in to your room, pop the cork on your stay with a welcome glass of champagne. Mornings begin with an included country breakfast, after which we recommend lounging by the pool or Jacuzzi surrounded by forest. If you're in the mood to unwind, use your $75 couples' massage credit—you'll be hard-pressed to find a better way to relax. Applewood also offers cable TV, complimentary Wi-Fi, and full concierge service.

Beyond the inn, an included wine tasting passport gives you free tastings at more than 120 of the area's world-class wineries. Later, raise a glass to the gorgeous scenery with a trip to Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, boasting 805 acres of full-bodied coastal redwoods.

Once you've painted the town Merlot, return to the inn to use your $50 dinner credit toward a three-course meal for two at The Restaurant at Applewood Inn, which has earned a Michelin star for the second straight year. Tuck into dishes like pan-roasted Muscovy duck breast and cocoa nib-crusted rack of California lamb, then wash your meal down with a glass of wine from the cellar.

If you're Bordeaux with everyday life, this week's intoxicating Escape to Russian River Wine Country is ripe for the picking, and The Applewood Inn is sure to leave a pleasant taste in your mouth.

  • "This inn comprises three Mediterranean-style villas that mix rustic décor with warm country charm. ... Applewood restaurant showcases fresh fruits and vegetables picked daily from the garden."
