So raise a glass, say those two precious words: “Bottoms Up!” and check out these Wineries where you can stay the night. Here are the highlights...
Nestled in the Finger Lakes, the Belhurst Castle & Winery is the epitome of elegance.

The Meritage Resort in California is the full package. They've got Tuscan-inspired luxury suites with farm-to-table cuisine. The resort is also the ultimate spa getaway with steam grottos, pools, and tranquil walls of water. Definitely one of the more luxurious wineries.
