St. Helena, California
When you play croquet at Meadowood, the Napa resort that’s spread out over 250 wooded acres near the town of Saint Helena, you are encouraged to keep a wine glass in hand at all times … even if it does prevent a good grip on the mallet. It’s all part of Meadowood’s white-gloved country-club glamour. It’s not only the croquet or the countless other activities -- from hiking to wine tasting to yoga -- that have people oohing and ahhing; Meadowood’s restaurant sends foodies across the globe into reverie.
