Before oenophile became part of the American vernacular, Napa Valley was a sleepy, wine-making region. For a taste of that earthy Napa of yore, check into Calistoga Ranch. Carved into a private canyon, just outside the mud-bath-renowned village of Calistoga, this 48-room, posh estate has an old farmhouse feel. With its own vineyard, the hotel celebrates the art of food and drink and invites guests to take part in the wine-making process. Sleek rooms with fireplaces and patios face jaw-dropping views, while a pool and first-rate spa seal the deal.
