4 New Wine Country Hotels

Wine Country Hotels: Delaire Graff Estate

The latest wine country hotels come in several varietals—some bold, others more subtle. Below, four of our favorites.

Delaire Graff Estate, South Africa (pictured): British jewelry baron Laurence Graff brings a new level of sophistication (doting butlers; world-class art) to rural Stellenbosch with his 10-villa estate, an hour from Cape Town. After a walk through the Keith Kirsten–designed gardens, take a dip in your private plunge pool. $$$$

Entre Cielos, Argentina: This airy, 16-room property in Luján de Cuyo offers more than just easy access to some of Mendoza’s top producers. Linger over perfectly grilled sirloin paired with a glass of the hotel’s own Malbec at the on-site restaurant, or lose yourself in the hammam, where Bacchus-themed treatments include a grape-seed body scrub. $$$

Nicaragua’s New Mukul Resort

Mukul Nicaragua

With its dense jungles and secluded beaches, Nicaragua is a raw paradise begging to be explored—but its limited infrastructure has kept many travelers away. Enter Mukul, part of a $250 million luxury development dreamed up by local magnate Carlos Pellas. Set on an untouched stretch of the Pacific coast, the airy accommodations have handmade mahogany furniture, private pools, and spacious decks. If you can bear to leave your beachside villa or tree-house-like bohio, the spa offers Turkish baths and Indonesian massages. And when Pellas isn’t in residence, guests can lounge at his 20,000-square-foot compound—a glass of the family’s slow-aged Flor de Caña rum in hand. $$$$
