Rombauer Vineyards

Richie Allen, Director of Viticulture & Winemaking

“If you need to move a mountain, call Renteria. They'll move it for you.”



Our Role

All aspects of vineyard management, from development to fruit delivery


Since 2003

“Part of Rombauer’s success is based on our relationship with the Renterias,” says Rombauer’s Director of Viticulture & Winemaking Richie Allen -- a big statement, considering that Rombauer Vineyards is one of Napa Valley’s most successful and iconic family-owned wineries. “Of all the vineyard management companies I’ve worked with – and I’ve worked all over the world – Renteria is the most responsive.”

With estate vineyards spread throughout Napa Valley, Allen works closely with Renteria’s vineyard operations and viticultural teams, and cites their professionalism, level of expertise and use of new technology as the company’s greatest strengths. But Oscar Renteria – “the only person I can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during harvest” -- is Allen’s primary contact. “Oscar and I have something in common; we both say yes to everything.”
