Most Sinful New Year's Eve Getaways

The best spots to indulge in gluttony, greed, and the other deadly sins this New Year’s (and how to atone).

Gluttony: Napa Valley

3 of 12

Why It’s Sinful: A bacchanal must include wine, and if you’re staying in the United States, California’s Napa Valley is your mecca. Of course, some of the country’s best dining also dots the valley’s rolling hills. Book a table at the French Laundry (a few months in advance), Bistro Jeanty, Bouchon, and Terra, or at celebrity chef Michael Chiarello’s new restaurant, Bottega.

Where to Stay: Splurge on one of the Auberge du Soleil’s private maisons, suitably named Champagne and Loire. With its expansive grounds and country-manor ambience, Meadowood puts you in an extravagant state of mind. And both properties have Michelin-starred restaurants to boot.

How to Atone: Sober up on a day hike in the Bothe-Napa Valley State Park, near St. Helena.
