Central California: The New Napa


Published:

Central California’s quaint B&Bs and luxury resorts are less of a drive and—dare we say it—less pretentious than Napa. We love CordeValle in San Martin, just 30 miles south of San Jose. The expansive resort has a pristine semi-private golf course (for hotel guests and members only), spacious bungalows, and a mix of casual and fine-dining restaurants with wine lists featuring local vintages. The Sense spa offers a signature grapeseed and cherry bark scrub, a nod to the neighboring Clos LaChance winery, owned by former San Diegan Bill Murphy (clos.com). In honor of California Wine Month, guests can book private tastings with the resort’s sommelier.
Rooms start at $429 per night, rosewoodhotels.com
