With the aroma of ripe grapes wafting through the air and the faint sound of rushing water coming from the nearby river, an escape to the Milliken Creek Inn and Spa in Napa Valley certainly arouses the senses. This Condé Nast Gold List contender showcases impeccable service and impressive amenities. The dozen rooms and suites possess a sophisticated aura, with walls bathed in soothing colors, and thoughtful touches such as fresh bedside orchids, plush robes for lavish lounging and spacious decks for indulging in a cup of morning java. Let yourself be spoiled by a complimentary gourmet breakfast during the course of your wine country retreat. Spend your days as you wish, but make it a point to return at the Magic Hour for the nightly wine and cheese reception, where you can chat with local vintners and sample some of the region's most prized vintages.
