California wine country has come a long way in a short time. Ever since the famous Judgement of Paris turned the wine world on its head in 1976, the wine making industry in Napa and Sonoma has blossomed. But it's not just the impressive wines that come out of the region that make it special: the natural beauty, incredible culinary scene, and laid back attitude make it a truly awesome corner of America. Hotels, like the Meritage Resort and Spa pictured here, offer couples and wine lovers a calm getaway surrounded by vines.
