St. Helena, California
$$$

Talk about a makeover. Much loved but styled along the lines of a ’70s dentist office, Raymond has been reinvented by Jean-Charles Boisset, scion of one of France’s prominent winemaking families and husband to California wine aristocrat Gina Gallo-Boisset. “We don’t just make wine … we create dreams!” Boisset says. At Raymond, the dreams now include a Champagne lounge with a gold-flecked resin floor and karaoke, and Louis XIV–style furniture under the trees. But there’s also a serious appellation-education room, a lab for blending your own wine, and a demonstration biodynamic garden with an app to guide you through it. And you can even bring your pooch to the doggie winery run by Boisset’s French bulldog, Frenchie.
