California Wine Country is one of the most romantic areas in the world. Need proof? Just check out these twelve gorgeous resorts ready for romance:
The Harvest Inn is a great choice if you're daydreaming of a luxury stay in the heart of wine country -- complete with impressive views, Old World rustic charm, and luxe amenities. It may be a bit pricey (and has no full restaurant), but it certainly doesn't skimp on the pampering, offering fireplaces, private terraces, designer furnishings, two pools, a spa, and more.

Kenwood Inn and Spa is located in Sonoma County, but the hotel and grounds evoke beautiful Tuscany. The European-style property impresses with its lush gardens and courtyards, and exquisite fountains and pools. The 29 private and spacious rooms are individually decorated with romantic Mediterranean-inspired decor, and are furnished with cozy fireplaces, quality Italian linens, oversize showers, and personal balconies (some with stunning vineyard views). Extensive freebies (such as in-room drinks and gourmet snacks), plush robes, and an ultra-luxurious spa help ensure that guests feel pampered. It's no wonder royalty, A-list celebrities, and athletes keep returning to the luxe Calistoga Ranch: It's in a class all by itself. Guests rent exquisite private lodges, set on a private 157-acre park-like property complete with hiking trails and a top-of-the-line restaurant and spa. Attention to detail carries over from room design to landscape planning -- all modules for the lodges were flown in by helicopter to minimize impact on surrounding trees and to maximize privacy. This property stands out as one of the most remarkable not just in Napa Valley but in the entire country. This 50-room luxury inn is one of the most exclusive (and expensive) destinations in California wine country. Despite its intimate size, it has all the amenities of a larger resort: a 7,000-square-foot luxury spa, a lovely pool, and a Michelin-star restaurant. Views of the surrounding countryside are phenomenal, the grounds are lush and peaceful, and the homey rooms all come with huge terraces (and, in most, fireplaces and soaking tubs). It's a truly special, romantic retreat, and it's location in Rutherford is convenient for exploring Napa Valley -- but note that there's nothing within walking distance. Housed in a Spanish mission-style building, this upscale 228-room hotel attracts well-heeled guests with a top-notch spa complete with its own thermal mineral spring, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and an 18-hole championship golf course. Most rooms were completely renovated in April 2010, but the standard ones probably could still use some updates, and they’re on the small side for the price. Housed in a tiny Mediterranean-style complex, North Block Hotel is well suited for a romantic getaway, with 20 cozy, elegant rooms with wonderful beds, espresso machines, and luxurious bathrooms with a separate six-foot bathtub and walk-in shower; an intimate and upscale spa with personalized treatments; and a pleasant swimming pool with lounge chairs and a Jacuzzi. Redd Wood, the hotel's newly opened restaurant (with Michelin-starred Chef Richard Reddington at the helm) offers Italian-inspired cuisine. This quaint, small B&B in the heart of downtown Sonoma is made up of six homey and attractive bungalows. Each bungalow is different -- some have wood-burning fireplaces, others have Jacuzzi tubs, separate living areas, or full kitchens -- so guests should specify exactly what they want when booking. The property is lacking certain amenities, such as a pool and a gym (although guests receive free passes to a nearby health club that has both). But the location is prime: Just around the corner is Sonoma Plaza, full of shops and restaurants, and the bungalows are right on the Sonoma Bike Path, leading to more than 40 area wineries. This 26-room, two-story inn has the charm of a Spanish hacienda, with stucco walls and pretty hand-painted details. It's an all-suite property, and the suites are spacious and rustic, with dark wood-beamed ceilings and carved wooden furniture. The suites are also bi-level, with the living area on the lower level, and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Outside, a lovely courtyard features beautiful overgrown trees and shrubs, and stone and wrought-iron details are pretty. But the property lacks the features of a larger hotel: There's no pool, spa, or fitness center. This luxurious 158-room property has everything the quaint Wine Country boutique hotels offer (but at a larger scale), plus a long list of outstanding extras that make the stay ultra-convenient. Despite not being in the most attractive part of Napa Valley, the resort manages to make you see past that with large, elegant rooms featuring classic decor, plush beds and modern amenities, and a long list of great freebies (an evening shuttle to Napa, Wi-Fi, and parking -- all included in the inexpensive resort fee). The upscale 22,000 square-foot spa, the intimate wine tasting room, the beautiful on-site vineyards, and the solid farm-to-table restaurant make it possible for guests to have a real Wine Country experience without leaving the property. This 36-room boutique hotel in the heart of Healdsburg is a good pick for eco-conscious folks looking for something convenient to wineries with a modern, hip, relaxed vibe. The rooms are all done in a minimalist style, using sustainable materials, and are equipped with all the high-tech amenities you could want: flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, DVD players, and free Wi-Fi. Plus, they come with private balconies or patios. The H2 offers some pretty interesting perks -- from "water stations" on each floor offering flat or sparkling water, to free loaner bikes, to free weekend yoga classes in the Green Room. There's also a nice solar-heated outdoor pool surrounded by greenery. This charming property is located right off Highway 101 just a few minutes outside Santa Rosa, but it feels a world apart. It is part of the renowned Ferrari-Carano winery, and has some of the most beautifully landscaped grounds in the area, with fountains, an overall old-world feel, and a two-mile jogging trail around the vineyards. The 44 rooms, though a bit bland in some cases, have warm decor, wood beams, high-tech amenities, and either a balcony or a private patio. There’s a full-service spa and a couple of nice freebies, but the highlight is definitely the acclaimed John Ash & Co. restaurant.
