The craft of winemaking is deeply rooted in a sense of place, and conservation is embedded within Frei Brothers Reserve’s culture and belief system; as part of the winery’s 50/50 Giveback Program, for every acre planted in vines the brand sets aside another acre for land and habitat preservation. Honoring Frei Brothers Reserve’s commitment to land and habitat preservation, the mission of Places Worth Preserving is to increase awareness of the importance of conservation and sustainability, both at and beyond Frei Ranch – from favorite backyard picnic spots to soaring redwood groves.

This year, the winery is working with Bon Appétit’s executive chef Mary Nolan to introduce a fun twist to the photo contest. The five top scoring finalist photos will not only inspire sustainable recipes developed by Chef Mary Nolan, but will be featured on the pages of Bon Appétit’s December issue.

“Our partnership with Bon Appétit this year celebrates sustainable wine, food, and the places they come from,” says Jim Collins, chief viticulturist at Frei Brothers Reserve. “We’re excited to launch our Places Worth Preserving photo contest for the second year and are asking our fans to submit photos of places that are special to them, that they want to see preserved for generations to come. I’m passionate about preserving Frei Ranch, and am honored and humbled to see our fan’s passion come through in the photos of their special places.”

Entering the Places Worth Preserving photo contest is easy:

  • Step One: Take a photo of a place that’s special, that’s worthy of being preserved for generations to come. It can be as magnificent as a national monument, or as intimate as your own backyard.
  • Step Two: Visit Frei Brothers Reserve on Facebook at and upload the picture and short caption to the Places Worth Preserving contest tab Enter up to once a day.

As part of the photo contest, prize packs will be awarded on a weekly basis and all entries are entered to win the grand prize. Each week Frei Brothers Reserve will randomly award entries with gifts and gadgets that are designed to help us preserve, protect and enjoy places worth preserving. In September, the five finalist submissions will be put up for a fan vote to determine the grand prize winner. That winner and a guest will win a California wine country getaway that includes a private tour and tasting at Frei Ranch in Healdsburg, Calif.
