Good article! I always look forward to the competition, it's a great experience for any wine lover!

I just came across this really cool site called "Giving through Growing!" Basically, Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi is partnering with the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA) in an effort to increase awareness of the community gardening movement. When you visit, you can send friends and family "e-seeds" to help raise money for the cause, without spending your own cash, and grow virtual gardens. I think they'll get a real kick out of them, try it out!
