The 15 Best Winery Hotels to Book in 2024

From tasting rooms and vineyard tours to wine bars to dinner pairings, there are lots of ways to experience wine country. But if you want to take the vacation’s dedication to wine to the next level, it’s time to factor lodging into the equation. Wineries that double as hotels are a great way to fully immerse yourself in the region, so you can sleep just steps away from the action.

These hotels in wine destinations around the world make sure every moment of your stay is centered around wine. Some are surrounded by stunning vineyards, offer on-site tastings, or even present the chance to sleep in a ginormous wine barrel. From waterfront villas to historic cottages, if you’re heading to one of these iconic regions, here are 15 winery hotels to keep in mind for a truly captivating stay.

If you close your eyes and picture staying at a hotel surrounded by vines, odds are you’re imagining a villa in the sun-kissed south of France — and Villa La Coste in Provence brings the idealized dream of sipping rosé amongst the vines to life. The estate is located in the sprawling Provencal landscape, nestled between the historic town of Aix-en-Provence and the stunning Luberon Nature Park. When guests aren’t galavanting through the organically farmed vines of Château La Coste, they can enjoy a meal at the on-premise Michelin-starred restaurant, take in the expansive views at the pool, or indulge in some treatments at the spa.

Jutting off of the southern coast of Australia an hour outside Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is a refuge for cool-climate winemaking in the otherwise heat-prone region. The Jackalope Hotel is a modern estate with 44 rooms, an infinity pool and pavilion, a cocktail bar, and two restaurants — not to mention the on-site winery, Rare Hare, which focuses on elegant expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The hotel is also known for its art collection, featuring an immersive Rain Room, which entails exactly what you think it does.

The Quinta do Vallado winery was established in 1716, making it one of the most historic estates in Portugal’s Douro Valley. The property, located high in the rolling green hills of the Douro, offers two different lodging experiences. The first is a traditional wine house with five recently renovated suites that was originally built in the 18th century. The building once belonged to Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, a true icon of the region. Alternatively, guests can stay in the other more modern buildings, including the Eira Lodge, which was added in 2023. Either way, visitors can take in the views of the Douro poolside, enjoy fresh produce from the estate’s organic garden at its restaurant, and experience the wines through a winery tour and tasting.

Unlike the old farm houses that are typically associated with remote winemaking towns, the Mastinell winery and hotel in Penedès is a modern architectural feat. The exterior of the hotel is designed to look like Cava bottles aging on their sides, with an impressive curved roof and circular mirrors. Not only do you feel like you’re sleeping inside a wine bottle, but while staying on the property guests have the opportunity to tour the vineyards and winery as well as sample the local Cava and cuisine.
