Legendary Wine Country restaurateur Cindy Pawlcyn alerts us to a getaway deal that creams a great Napa Valley experience into a single -price package.
It starts with a one night in a King room at the The Inn at Southbridge, a boutique hotel hiding in plain sight on Main Street in St. Helena. The elegant and off-the-radar inn has enviable neighbors — Pizzeria Tra Vigne and Tra Vigne restaurant and Merryvale Winery.
Toast your arrival with a complimentary half bottle of Tamber Bey Cabernet Sauvignon. Then stroll over to either Brassica Mediterranean Kitchen & Wine Bar, Pawlcyn’s newest culinary destination, or Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen, both within an easy walk of the hotel. The eateries are offering a complimentary glass of Mumm’s along with a tasty “first bite” such as Eggplant Fries with za’atar and spiced yoghurt at Brassica or Crispy Backstreet Flatbread with grilled red onions, radicchio and Bellwether Farms Carmody Cheese at Cindy’s.
Wake up to a complimentary breakfast of fresh fruit and pastries. Then book a 50-minute treatment at the Health Spa Napa Valley next door to the hotel for $99, a discount of $21. Maximize the indulgence by arriving early and staying late to take advantage of the treatment lounge, Spa Garden, pool, hot tub and eucalyptus steam rooms.
Afterward, take a walk through downtown St. Helena, stopping in for a complimentary tasting for two at the Tamber Bey tasting room.
The package, a $490 value, can be booked starting at $349. And unlike many hotel specials, it’s good any night of the week. To reserve visit innatsouthbridge.com or call (707) 967-9400.
