show us your cakebread!

In the 50s, Jack Cakebread had a car repair business, Cakebread’s Garage. But he’d also studied with photographer Ansel Adams and, in 1972, was hired to take wine country photos for a book. While snapping pictures in Napa, Jack visited some old family friends and wound up buying their property. Cakebread Cellars was born.

Now it’s an iconic Napa winery that’s celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this fall. Every year they get tons of photos from all over the country of people drinking Cakebread. People have taken it hiking in the Himalayas: 2001Second_Place_Himalayas
