A railway tour of wine country was derailed Sunday afternoon when the Napa Valley Wine Train crashed into a stretch limousine bus near St. Helena. No one was “seriously injured” in the collision, according to Rick Evanich, the managing director of Napa Valley Wine Train. The crash was initially reported to the California Highway Patrol about 12:45 p.m. in front of V. Sattui Winery, at 1111 White Lane, just south of St. Helena. The limousine, which was about 40-feet long, appeared to have gotten stuck on the tracks, according to CHP. The vehicle, which was T-boned by the slow-moving train, incurred the most damage, officials said.

Romance language led to love for French-U.S. coupleThe two were gathered with a large group of international friends, and clearly some didn’t understand the significance — or the importance — of watching a Super Bowl game with respect.Chasa, 29, who grew up in San Diego and Minneapolis, shot the Parisian a look, but he and his friends seemed not to notice.[...] the next time they really met up was with the same gang, again experiencing a slice of Americana:By the time they jumped on their return flight to San Francisco, Chasa was thinking, “I’m with this guy.”Dating was easy and instant.Chasa, who works as the public-relations coordinator for Gensler, a global architecture and design firm, hadn’t been looking for a boyfriend.[...] it wasn’t long before she could imagine herself making a family with Sébastien, who works for Apple as an operations manager.“Sébastien is like the boy in elementary school who teases you and you know it’s because he likes you,” she said.Within the next two years, the couple moved in together and also visited France, where Chasa met her future in-laws.When he returned, he fell on two knees and grabbed her right hand.When Chasa tried to direct him upwards — “It looked a little like begging,” she said — and urged him to take her left hand, he insisted it was in the French tradition.Despite the cultural differences, the gesture held truth; Chasa said an unequivocal “yes” to his proposal.The couple’s May wedding in Napa Valley began with a service at St. Helena Catholic Church.The reception, at the Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in St. Helena, was accented with floral blue toile and celebrated the couple’s American and French cultures.The bride wore an elegant handcrafted Trish Lee fitted and flared gown with a crystal beaded belt, draped with a lace off-the-shoulder capelet.Four bridesmaids wore blue floral pleated chiffon floor-length gowns, a tip of the hat to the French theme.Desserts from both cultures were plentiful: chocolate cream pies, lavender-infused wedding cake, pot de crème and beignents.Just over a hundred guests played games outdoors, danced and, when evening fell, roasted marshmallows over open fires.Louise Rafkin is a Bay Area freelance writer.St. Helena Catholic Church (ceremony) and Farmstead Long Meadow Ranch and Winery (reception)
