Looking for a story book way to propose to your beloved or rekindle that spark this Valentine's Day?

Story Winery, nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills, is offering a private section of their winery to lovebirds hoping to pop the big question this weekend.

The $65 fee includes use of a private table overlooking the picturesque vineyard for one hour, pre-set appetizers, a bottle of Story Raspberry Champagne on ice, two Champagne flutes and a bouquet of flowers to take home.

"There is a fantastic view of the Cosumnes valley and the vineyards, which are just starting to bud a little," said Cinde Dolphin, the winery's marketing representative.

The deal is available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

A violinist also will be available at no extra charge on Saturday, she said.
