Hotel Fasano Las Piedras, Punta del Este, Uruguay

From the Barossa Valley in South Australia to Portugal’s Alentejo region, each of these five resorts is a wine lover’s paradise.

Hotel Fasano Las Piedras, Punta del Este, Uruguay
With growing interest in this emerging wine region’s tannat varietal, the timing was right for this 32-bungalow resort to be created by the Brazil-based Fasano group. The 2-year-old, ultramodern property boasts plenty of distractions for the jet-set crowd it attracts: the first Arnold Palmer-designed, 18-hole golf course in South America; a private beach; and a pool carved out of natural rock. From $390,

Kingsford Homestead, Barossa Valley, South Australia
This 225-acre sandstone estate, a former sheep station, was converted into an elegant seven-suite boutique hotel last year. The pastoral outback setting still allows for plenty of indulgence, from five-course tasting menus served on the veranda to an al fresco private bath overlooking the North Para River. And of course, you can explore the dozens of wineries dotting the region. $774,

L’and Vineyards, Alentejo, Portugal
Danish-inspired design meets Portuguese wine country at this 22-suite boutique resort. By day, take a hot air balloon ride over the vineyard-covered hills and finish with green asparagus risotto and carrot duet with pistachio crumble at the restaurant. By night, sleep under the stars in one of the 10 Sky View suites, which boast retracting skylights above beds. Doubles from $255,

Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany, Italy
Originally a private club for Massimo Ferragamo and his close friends, this exclusive estate now welcomes all to its 23 cozy suites, most featuring terraces, four-poster beds, and clawfoot tubs. The property’s private winery is one of the largest producers of the Brunello di Montalcino varietal; there’s also an on-site cooking school with a kitchen garden growing some 180 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. From $750,

Calistoga Ranch, Napa Valley
There’s no shortage of romantic inns and oak-studded resorts in California’s most revered wine region, but the cedar-shingled lodges at this 157-acre property offer a privacy and magic all their own. The grounds also include a greenhouse garden (that supplies the restaurant with everything from cantaloupe to squash), hiking trails, and naturally, a vineyard. From $875,
