I've always thought Cakebread's long-running annual Photo Contest is a simple but fun and absolutely effective way to engender brand loyalty among its customers. And so when I heard that the Rutherford winery would be offering a photography workshop with standout shutterbug Andy Katz followed by lunch this weekend, it struck me as a logical - and compelling - extension of the winery's branding initiatives.

Family Fun in the Wine Country

The addition to our family of a baby--our beautiful daughter--had countless positive effects. However, there was one drawback. It turned the Golden Gate Bridge, over which we previously had skipped so effortlessly into Wine Country into a Bridge Too Far.

For several months on end, not only did we not make one of our favorite day trips or easy weekend getaways, we scarcely even let the prospect enter our minds.  So recently when we had occasion to try it again--owing mostly to being forced out of our house to make way for some minor construction--we weren't quite sure what to expect.
