Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort & Spa

The Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa is first on this list for good reason. It’s where I stayed during my most recent visit to Livermore Valley, and I would absolutely come back!

You’ll find yourself right in the heart of Wine Country, surrounded by breathtaking vineyard views. They only have ten rooms, so I would highly recommend booking well in advance if you don’t want to miss out on this unique gem.

If you have time between wine tastings, they also have a great pool and hot tub, along with a menu of spa offerings!  For those of you with a jam packed schedule, be sure to at least check out their delicious, free breakfast.
