All wine country vacations turn on the same happy routine: days spent ambling through a mosaic of vineyards, making leisurely stops at a clutch of wineries to swirl, sniff, sip and spit; yawning through discourses on malolactic fermentation and the price of French oak; dining at restaurants where the regional food is a perfect complement to the local wines. Selecting a place to spend the night, however, can make or break the trip. Here are 10 of the most enchanting wine country hotels in the world. Whether you choose to sleep in a castle, a convent, a farmhouse or a mecca for haute cuisine that just happens to offer beds for the night, you'll wake up in the morning feeling intoxicated.
