Located in Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley, is the Bardessono. With only 62 guestrooms, the hotel feels intimate and private. Each room features a private outdoor space, spacious bedroom, and bathroom large enough for in-room spa treatments. What makes the Bardessono somewhat unique is that it was built to be a "green" hotel. The hotel refers to itself as "deep green" with luxury. They definitely deliver on the luxury.

Virginia Wine Country

When you think of the wine regions of the world worth visiting Virginia probably does not come to mind, but maybe it should. Wineries have been producing wine in Virginia for decades, but in the past five to ten years new wineries have been popping up, especially in Northern Virginia, just a short drive from Washington, D.C. Much to my surprise, some of them are producing some excellent wines.
