The Carneros Inn, California

The Carneros wine-growing region is known for its pinot noirs, chardonnay, sparkling wines and the stylish Carneros Inn. Set in the cool southern Napa Valley, it's flanked by farms, orchards and vines. The guest cottages are inspired by the valley's barns and ranches, albeit with cherry wood floors, Eames chairs and teak patio furniture. There are three restaurants, a spa and complimentary bicycle hire, as well as visits to affiliated wineries.

The Carneros Inn, 4048 Sonoma Highway, Napa, California (001 707 299 4900; thecarnerosinn.com ). Doubles start at $458 (305), room only.

Solage Calistoga, California

This upscale Napa retreat offers round-the-clock indulgence, whether it's a breakfast of lemon and ricotta pancakes, a dip in the pool with Palisade Mountain views, cycle touring the local vineyards (Cuvaison and Clos Pegase are both nearby) or unwinding in the extensive spa where mud treatments are inspired by Calistoga's hot spring mud baths. Guest rooms purvey the vinous theme, with fabrics and wall panels in grape reds and greens.

Solage Calistoga, 755 Silverado Trail, Calistoga, Napa, California (001 866 942 7442; solagecalistoga.com ). Doubles start at $470 (313), room only.

The Cave B Inn at SageCliffe, Washington State

Washington State now produces wines arguably on a par with Napa and Sonoma labels, at a fraction of the price. At The Cave B winery, you can watch the sun set over the Columbia River from the contemporary guest rooms.

The Cave B Inn at Sagecliffe, 344 Silica Road NW, Quincy, Washington (001 509 785 2283; sagecliffe.com ). Doubles start at $214 (143), room only.

Duchamp Hotel, California

Sonoma's rolling hills make an appealing alternative to the broad Napa Valley, and the wine capital here is Healdsburg. One of the town's hippest addresses is the Duchamp Hotel, which has its own syrah-growing winery and six stylish poolside bungalows.

Duchamp Hotel, 421 Foss Street, Healdsburg, Sonoma, California (001 707 431 1300; duchamphotel.com ). Doubles from $382 (254), room only.

The Greenporter, New York State

The Hamptons have long held the Long Island spotlight, but now attention is turning to the North Fork at the eastern extremity of the island and its burgeoning wine scene. At the gateway to the wineries and fishing villages of the North Fork are the village of Greenport and the mid-century style Greenporter Hotel. Here, La Cuve restaurant serves many of the locally produced wines alongside organic and Long Island produce. It also hosts special wine evenings such as a Lebanese dinner paired with Paumanok wines.

The Greenporter, 326 Front Street, Greenport, Long Island, New York (001 631 477 0066; thegreenporter.com ). Doubles start at $108 (72), room only.

The Allison Inn & Spa, Oregon

The Allison is a luxurious base from which to explore Oregon's Willamette Valley. The hotel is decorated in earthy shades and has its own working vineyard. The Jory restaurant is named after the soil that produces Oregon's pinot noirs.

The Allison Inn & Spa, 2525 Allison Lane, Newberg, Oregon (001 503 554 2525; theallison.com ). Doubles start at $316 (210), room only.
