More to do tonight: wine dinner at 1924 Main
There’s already a beer movie and a bourbon tasting tonight so why not a wine dinner to complete the booze trifecta?
Readers of our Pitch Forks newsletter already know that starting at 6:30 tonight, 1924 Main hosts a wine dinner with Oscar Renteria of
Renteria is a second-generation wine maker. His father, Salvador Renteria, was a Mexican immigrant who worked as a barber and pool-hall hustler before moving to California and becoming a vineyard farm hand. After years in the business, Salvador opened his own vineyard management company in 1987. Some of the better-known wineries in Napa Valley and surrounding areas, like Screaming Eagle and Chandon, quickly signed up as his clients.
Oscar started helping his father pick grapes when he was 12, left to attend college and took over operations from his old man in 1993. But in addition to taking care of other people’s grapes, Oscar wanted to take care of his own. He started Renteria wine in Napa Valley in 1997.
The Renterias worked from the ground up, and it will be interesting to hear Oscar’s tales of living and working all over one of the world’s greatest wine areas. The wine be good, too. The dinner is a special four-course menu prepared by chef-owner Rob Dalzell, while Renteria features two cabernet sauvignons, a chardonnay and a pinot noir, all of which retail in the $30 to $50 range.
