Our friends over at BedandBreakfast.com have just chosen their Top 10 Inns located in vineyards. You can read all about their choices here, but if you just can’t wait, here are my five favorites from their list along with a brief description of each …

Agriturismo Marciano. Located in that most romantic of all Italian regions -- Tuscany -- this B&B lets you watch the workers do their thing in the organic fields while you enjoy the fruits of their labor. Wine tours throughout the region can be arranged.

Girasol Vineyard & Inn. When you’re tasting wine, the last thing you should do is get in your car and drive (that, and phone up an old ex). At this B&B in Washington state, you can walk to 18 wineries in a two-mile radius.

Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard and B&B. You might think of Long Island as a land of big hair instead of a land of big-flavored wines, but a stay at this B&B on the North Fork might just change your mind. You get to learn a lot about the ancient craft of winemaking while staying in a thoroughly modern suite.

Wine Country Inn. While I don’t condone wine tasting and driving, wine tasting and riding a bike through the vineyards seems like a better proposition. At this Napa Valley inn, you’ll get to do exactly that to explore over 50 wineries and 15 restaurants within a 5-mile radius.

Lobenhaus B & B & Vineyard. Lots of wine-country inns let you taste the wines from their region, but this one actually lets you taste the grapes as you stroll past the vines with a resident viticulturist who’ll give you secrets about the soil and educate you on grape-growing techniques.
