Is this a vineyard of the set of a Jane Austen novel? Domaine Carneros is a stunning winery known for its sparkling wine and pinot noir, which visitors can taste inside or on the terrace of a picturesque chateau inspired by the Château de la Marquetterie in Champagne, France. After climbing the estate's grand staircase, rewards yourself with a glass or a full flight that includes samples of sparkling wine, like a late disgorged (when sediment is removed from the bottle) brut or a Verméil demi-sec.
How to visit: Domaine Carneros is open seven days a week from 10am to 5:30pm. A four-wine flight tasting costs $30; cheese, charcuterie and caviar (ooh la la) pairings start at $19. Tastings are by appointment only.
In short: Stunning scenery, elegant, fantastic bubbly
