Wine Country Blog: Innsights to the Wine Country


Posted by Farmhouse Concierge Staff on January 18, 2014


If you haven’t checked your calendar since the New Year, than you may not have realized that Valentine’s Day is less than a month from now. Not to worry - if you haven’t started planning yet...because Farmhouse Inn is declaring the whole month of February as the Month of Romance.  Tell your significant other that you don't want to limit the celebration of your love to a single day- you want to celebrate all month long- then sneak in a little trip to the wine country.

If you’re a last minute planner than you may have noticed that restaurants, romantic getaways and hotels are already sold out Valentine’s Day weekend. Ah yes, did you forget that Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year? You have the whole weekend to celebrate we are suggesting, the whole month. (Oh, what the heck, let's make  a year of it!





Not to toot our own horns (ok, maybe a little) but here at Farmhouse Inn we consider ourselves to be the romance experts. From honeymoons, to proposals, to last minute elopements, and special anniversary celebrations, we know how to create a romantic getaway for any couple who needs it.

A little spa getaway? A couple of nights away from the kids?
Early morning hot air balloon ride with champagne brunch to follow? A romantic stroll in the redwoods...or just get away from the "to-do" list with a good book in front of the fireplace?  Farmhouse Inn is just the place. 









A small wedding or elopement at Farmhouse Inn shouts romance from the rooftops. If you were engaged over the holiday don’t rule out on a small wedding- these intimate celebrations are personal, special, and truly bring on the waterworks  (not saying who is crying but no one's denying that we go through an awful lot of waterproof mascara).


One of our recent elopements was a couple coming together from opposite sides of the world- Australia and the United Kingdom. This is in fact the second international wedding we’ve had in less than a month. Last Christmas holiday we were fortunate enough to play host to a couple from Dubai and their guests from the United Kingdom. We look forward to all of our 2016 weddings and proposals. Here's a look at one of our elopement couples from this past year... daring, spontaneous, and oh, so romantic.

For those of you who have already tied the knot or need assistance in asking the question, be sure to check out our Make Him a Hero Menu and Romance Packages. We don’t reference Prince Charming for nothing. These packages range from a private winery proposal and dinner to our very popular Candlelight Tub Turndown, a romantic setting all ready for you once you return from dinner.  Rose petals, candles throughout, champagne on ice and chocolate truffles await you. All we need from you is a date and time and we’ll do the rest.

Other options include our popular Alone Time Wine Tour and our “We’ll take one for you” package. Did you mess up recently? Forget a special anniversary? Call our Concierges and we’ll take one for you; a sure-fire way to get the romance back and you off the couch.


And for the local couples who can only get a sitter for one night consider a romantic dinner for two. No matter the date, our Restaurant offers a wonderfully romantic setting. And yes, we are happy to coordinate a proposal, flowers on the table or a special menu in our Restaurant if you give us a call. From our Chocolate Soufflé (maybe our favorite thing on the menu) to the addition of caviar in a main course dish, the Restaurant is ideal for the couple who can only sneak away for an evening. For the wine lover be sure to check out our wine list online so you can plan ahead accordingly! 18 pages of bubbles, Chardonnay, Pinot, Chianti and wonderful dessert wines await you.

 Here’s to February and a month long celebration of all things romantic.
