Return Guest Reunion

Many of our Wine Country Inn guests return to the Inn year after year. Of course, our staff becomes quite close with this new friends.... With these guests in mind, we decided to say "thank you" by offering a "Return Guest Reunion" in early 2009. Even if people didn’t know each other at the beginning of the weekend, we figure that they would by the end! Here are the details:

~ Our Return Guest Reunion weekend will be February 27-28, 2009.

~ You and a guest will receive two nights lodging, all regular Inn amenities (breakfast, etc.), and on the Saturday night a return guest party in our common room complete with cocktails, wine, and a four-course catered dinner.

~ The package price for the weekend, for two people, varies by room type:
Traditional Room: $700
Suites: $870
Cottages: $1,190

Please visit our web site or call toll-free 1-888-465-4608 for availability or to make a reservation. We hope to see you --again! -- soon!

New Year's Eve Party

What, a New Year's Eve party that's... free? Oh, wait--they'll just raise the room rates, right? No!

That's right: this year the Wine Country Inn will be offering our guests a special New Year’s Eve party on December 31. Highlights of the event include:
~ Our New Year’s Eve party will be complimentary for guests of the Inn that night. That’s right—while most places mark up (significantly!) their fees for New Year’s Eve, we’re going to throw a party at no additional cost to you.

~ In keeping with our old-fashioned holiday theme, the Inn’s room rates for that night will not increase.

~ Our New Year’s Eve Party will run from approximately 10:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. (or so), and include a champagne toast and dessert bar loaded with all sorts of homemade goodies.

~ Of course, you’ll avoid driving hazards by simply walking to your room.

Come celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of a new one with old friends... or make some new ones in our cozy common room complete with roaring fire. Visit our web site our call toll-free 1-888-465-4608 for room availability and rates.

Ode to the Olive

Yes, the Napa Valley has awesome wine. But we also have many other food producers, including many ultra-premium olive oil companies. To help our Wine Country Inn guests experience this wonderful fruit, we’ve created what we hope will become an annual celebration: the Ode to the Olive, to be held Nov. 12-15 at the Wine Country Inn.

Wine Country Inn guests will have a multitude of ways to experience the olive, including:
~ Numerous tasting opportunities, from spreads to tapenades to olive oils ~ The opportunity to visit one or more nearby olive oil producers
~ A complimentary copy of our Ode to the Olive Collector’s Book
~ An “ode to the martini” evening event, complete with stuffed olives
~ Special discounts or goodies from nearby participating restaurants
The nearly-week long celebration will culminate in our Saturday afternoon Olive Oil Taste-Off, in which three celebrity judges (stay tuned!) will taste from numerous Napa Valley and local olive oil producers. The winner will become the Wine Country Inn’s featured olive oil for 2009.
