The Draw: Imagine yourself on that terrace, sipping a fine white Char, taking in the postcard that is California's wine country. That's Auberge du Soleil, a full-service luxury resort started as a restaurant by Claude Rouas more than 25 years ago. The wine list is the valley's largest, specially picked to pair with Auberge's Mediterranean and locally-influenced cuisine -- and the inn's outdoor terrace, one of the most coveted views in wine country.

The Vibe: Wine country at its best: Lingering relaxation. Seasonal appetizers. Luscious-sounding lobster salads with avocado and almonds. Even desserts get their own afternoon menu at Auberge, each with dessert wine recommendations. After all, when the pace slows down, there's always room for filo-wrapped chocolate dumplings with tarragon ice cream.
