Don’t stress about making the perfect Thanksgiving meal this year. Instead, leave the cooking up to some of LoCoVa’s top chefs and get away for a relaxing holiday in wine country.

Many of our restaurants and resorts have created special menus and packages so you can kick back, watch football and connect with family and friends.
