So many reasons to go to Napa this weekend.

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.
