The Harvest Inn's resident pup Peanut is the perfect ambassador to promote the Inn's 'Love Me, Love My Dog' package, introduced just in time for spring travelers and their four-legged friends to bask in the beauty and romance of the Napa Valley.

'Love Me, Love My Dog’ includes all of the creature comforts a canine could want – an elegant doggie bed, food and water bowls, bow-wow tasty treats, a list of pet-friendly wineries and restaurants and a 10% off coupon at Fideaux, a boutique pet store with locations in St. Helena and Healdsburg. Peanut has also teamed up with his neighbors at dog friendly V. Sattui Winery to add a $50 certificate to the package, perfect for a premium wine tasting for two and picnic lunch on their beautiful grounds.

V. Sattui Winery is a fourth-generation family-owned winery. V. Sattui makes 45 different wines. Recent recognition of the winery’s commitment to excellence is its selection as "Winery of the Year" at the 2012 Winemaker Challenge and “Best of the Bay” winner in the 2011 San Francisco Bay Guardian.

The 'Love Me, Love My Dog' package also includes a $10 donation to Napa Humane in their important work.

The Harvest Inn sits on eight beautifully landscaped acres inspiring romps and the vineyard's adjacent trail is perfect for sunset walks. Stretch your legs and leash at V.Sattui’s two-acre picnic grounds with expansive grass lawn and beautiful gardens. Use your certificate to enjoy a premium wine tasting for two and then select a picnic from the winery’s well-stocked Marketplace with over 200 artisanal cheeses, charcuterie and locally baked breads.

The newly renovated Harvest Inn is a world-renowned AAA Four Diamond country-style estate located in St. Helena, surrounded by premium wineries and extraordinary dining. Charming brick and wood cottages, guest rooms and suites are spread over eight acres of gorgeously landscaped gardens, making the Inn an ideal setting for a well-deserved, relaxing vacation getaway with your four-legged friend. The Inn also features two heated swimming pools and massage treatment rooms tucked into the gardens and Redwoods.

All accommodations include breakfast daily, a wealth of amenities including aromatherapy personal care items, large flat screen televisions with DVD players, refrigerated mini-bar with coffee/tea maker, high-speed Internet access and more. With stunning vineyard views and the Mayacamas Mountains just beyond, guests, four- and two-legged alike, long to linger in the warm atmosphere with hand-crafted fireplaces, intricate woodwork and country estate ambience.

The Main Lodge features a welcoming lobby with singular 20-foot ceilings and custom carved woodwork throughout. Just beyond the lobby is the Inn’s spacious Great Room where you can enjoy fireside wine tastings beside the massive cobblestone hearth. The cozy wine bar is open daily until 11p.m., offering samples of local vintages as well as tranquil views, handsome leather sofas, a grand piano and backgammon tables. Complimentary guided wine and cheese tastings from local producers are offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in The Great Room.

Following your stay, guests and their beloved dogs can enter the Pretty Pucci Contest – simply send a photo of your "Pucci Pooch" enjoying the newly renovated Harvest Inn for a chance to win a one night stay for Fido (with owners, of course) on your next visit, a $100 value. Each month one winner will be selected by Peanut and the Inn’s staff. Peanut even has his own email address where you can submit your photos: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
