Ultimate Wine Country Spas

Rejuvenate at one of these getaways in Napa and Sonoma Counties

The perfect complement to visiting award-winning vineyards is a trip to one of Sonoma County or the Napa Valley’s sumptuous spas. Set amidst a backdrop of rolling hills, broad valleys, and miles of grapes, the region is not only a visual Shangri-la that’s perfect for relaxing; it’s also ripe with natural hot springs and mineral-rich muds that naturally lend themselves to spa treatments.

Smack in the middle of the Sonoma Valley, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa ranks as one of the most indulgent—and classic—rejuvenating destinations. The resort’s spa is famous for being one of the only luxury spas in the country with its own source of thermal mineral water, rising from 1,100 feet beneath the earth. Spoil yourself with the elaborate Wine Country Wind-Down, which includes a Crushed Cabernet body scrub, followed by a Fleur de Vigne warm oil massage, sparkling wine, and a VinoPerfect brightening facial.

At Spa Solage, part of the chic 89-room Solage Calistoga resort in the Napa Valley, look for an interesting and ecologically conscious twist on traditional mud and thermal therapies. Go for the signature Mudslide, a three-part treatment that starts with a trip to the Mud Bar, which offers several blends of mineral-enriched clay and volcanic ash that you slather on as a rejuvenating mask. Then, soak in an oversized tub featuring geothermal mineral water from Solage’s own spring. Finally, wrap it up—literally—while swathed in cozy blankets and nestled in one of the spa’s state-of-the-art reclining vibration chairs, meant to mimic zero gravity.

Tucked away in the town of Freestone, a scenic 30-mile drive south of Santa Rosa, Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary lets you melt away in its signature Cedar Enzyme Bath in the calm of a serene Japanese garden. Also on offer are organic facials, rejuvenating massages—including one that employ the traditional Chinese blockage-clearing T’ui Na technique—and overnight packages with partnering local hotels.
