River Terrace Inn living room in Napa City, CA

I’ve written about the Napa Valley Wine Train throughout many years. I’ve had the pleasure to ride this turn-of-the-century train, munch on gourmet appetizers and sip on wines from local vineyards. I’ve also been fortunate enough to dine during a media tour at The River Terrace Inn in Napa City, an eclectically designed boutique hotel with gorgeous garden and a prime spot on the Napa River. These two very special places have combined their unique assets to offer stay-and-ride promotions. From stopping points along the train route at name vineyards such as Charles Krug, to dining riverside at The River Terrace Inn, you can create your own romance or adventure., (707) 320-6910; hotel: 707-320-9000; reservations, (866) 627-2386,

I receive offers for discounts and press releases promoting properties and destinations around the world. Wish I could visit most of them, but I was particularly intrigued by the offer of a 30-minute helicopter ride, two six-course dinners and a bottle of champagne that comes with a two night stay at The Royal Snail in Namur, Belgium.
