For an astonishing eight years in a row, Post Ranch Inn atop Big Sur was voted No. 1 U.S. Hideaway. This year it was finally dethroned.

Topping the list of the Best Food and Wine Resorts is LEED-certified Bardessono in Yountville, CA, which claimed first place after being unranked last year.

For an unprecedented eighth year in a row, no U.S. hideaway with 50 rooms or fewer has managed to dislodge the Post Ranch Inn from the top of the list.

As in 2014, Auberge du Soleil and Blackberry Farm jostled for the top spot. Here, too, California dominated the list, claiming five of the top six rankings.

Each year, we ask our readers to vote for the best Food & Wine resorts around the world. From the exquisite Napa Valley to the grandeur of France’s Champagne country, enjoy the delicious results of Andrew Harper’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

Congratulations to 2013 Hideaway Report Reader Survey favorite The Inn at Little Washington.
