Wine tastings and some soothing time in the spa make this Escape to the Russian River Valley a must.

The Destination
Napa may lure the tourists, but the Russian River Valley wine region—which falls within Sonoma County— accounts for roughly ten percent of grape varietals planted in the area and has been silently garnering a reputation for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Here, vineyards in the misty countryside go about their business relatively undisturbed by tour buses and foot traffic, and the region recommends itself with superb cuisine and gorgeous scenery—take the majestic giants rooted in the cathedral-like Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, for instance.

The Digs
Mammoth redwoods stand guard around the secluded Applewood Inn, Restaurant and Spa, an award-winning, four-star Guerneville retreat that has appeared in more than 40 magazines and newspapers. Guest rooms are housed in three buildings, headlined by the Villa Casa Grande, where a Mission-style stucco exterior conceals nine individually decorated chambers—each named for a town in Tuscany.

The Diversions
Mornings begin with a full country breakfast with complimentary mimosas, after which guests are welcome to indulge in a therapeutic spa treatment or venture out to tour the area's acclaimed wineries. The Restaurant at Applewood Inn—awarded a Michelin star in 2011 and 2012—is open Wednesdays through Sundays and has dropped many a gourmand's jaw with locally sourced dishes like miso-glazed black cod and cocoa nib-crusted rack of lamb. A glass of California wine from the cellar ensures every bite goes down smoothly.

  • "Everything about the weekend at Applewood Inn was incredible! The staff made it the most perfect experience, and the area/rooms/restaurant/spa are all wonderful! Highly recommend!"
