1) An extra day for dinner and wine overlooking Mount Saint Helena at Charlie Palmer’s new spot inside the Harvest Inn.
We’ll just stop there.
Your three-day weekend begins and ends at Harvest Table, the property’s first restaurant ever, open now. Here’s a slideshow that beckons. And here’s the menu.
First, drop your bags in a new room and explore the grounds: sculpture garden, massage cabana, blown-glass chandeliers...
Wait, you were here for dinner. Man. This place can really distract you.
Okay. After a day at the vineyards, early evenings should happen outside: the terrace exists solely for you to get started on some grilled octopus, calamari and something from the garden.
Correction: gardens. There are five, full of arugula, licorice basil and other greens to go on and around your chateau sirloin or whole roasted chicken for two.
And wine-wise: tons of Napa bottles, and a “Blind Vine” non-Napa tasting situation. For that, you’ll choose based on a coy description, grape and price. Then you’ll have to guess what it is.
Or just nod appreciatively, then talk about Peggy and Stan.
