Should I make any changes to this Napa itinerary (wine/food)

Regarding traffic from southern Napa Valley to Healdsburg ~ it really all depends. If there are a lot of grape trucks and tourists on Highway 29, it can be a long go. You can use Silverado Trail to shave off some time. Otherwise, it's 1 hour and 15-30 minutes from downtown Napa to Healdsburg without traffic.

Great itinerary. Just a few things to point out:
Tuesday ~
Russian River Brewing Company (if you mean the downtown Santa Rosa brewery) is about one hour from Redd in Yountville.
Also, I've heard great things about Redd Wood, their sister place, which I believe is more casual. Also in Yountville.
Wednesday~
Oxbow is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Jordan Winery over in Healdsburg, Sonoma County.
If you are looking for a place to eat your Oxbow lunch, you could go to the picnic table above the damn at Lake Sonoma. The views are amazing. If you want to grab a picnic lunch in Healdsburg and avoid carrying food for several hours, try Jimtown Store or the Dry Creek General Store. Both of great sandwiches and other gourmet nibbles.

Schramsberg is fantastic!

PS -- I work at Jordan Winery and have lived in this region for 12 years. Enjoy your trip.

Anyone know a Teppan-yaki chef who does private parties?

We are trying to find a teppan-yaki chef to cater a private birthday party in wine country. Haven't found anyone in the Bay Area through phone calls to restaurants or googling. Anyone have any suggestions?

The Tiniest (Functional) Corkscrew in the World

Definitely going to check this out. Agree on the questionable presentation partnership. Could be great for picnics.

What Food to Bring New Parents

I like Jay D's suggestion too.

Our chef makes his own baby food on the weekends. Once the little one gets bigger, homemade baby food could be a great gift too or a fun activity for the parents.
