The oh so private Relais & Chateaux Meadowood Resort estate is the perfect gift for spending twenty-two hours of quiet relaxation with someone special. Enjoy the benefits of an early check-in time to settle into a romantic guest room, snuggle up in front of a roaring fire and emerge just in time for your private, one-hour wine tasting of exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons with a member of Meadowood’s wine education staff. Dinner is yours to plan. You might consider The Restaurant at Meadowood, which earned two stars from the esteemed Michelin Guide, or one of the Valley’s other celebrated restaurants. After breakfast the next morning, enjoy a fitness class, a morning run or hike. Then, venture off the estate to visit a favorite winery or explore charming downtown St. Helena. Pricing is $500 Sunday through Thursday nights or $575 weekends through April 16, 2009. http://www.meadowood.com/lodging/;
