The Big Six: Wine country hotels

Beltane Ranch, Sonoma, California

Set in the heart of the Sonoma Valley north of San Francisco, the Beltane Ranch is a family-run working farm producing wine, grass-fed beef and olive oil. Built in 1892, the romantic verandah-wrapped shingle house is one of the area's most charming places to stay. There are five airy guestrooms decorated with antiques and heirlooms and a cottage looking out over gardens of organic vegetables, flowers and orchards. The property, which grows chardonnay, zinfandel, syrah and cabernet sauvignon grapes, produced its first vintage in 2009. It's also well placed for exploring the wineries of the 17-mile long Valley of the Moon.
