Wine Wednesday: Dinner with the Road 31 vintner



Winemaker Kent Fortner is both one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the wine industry, as well as one of its most talented winemakers. 

On Friday, December 4th, Kent will be in town as Finca hosts a wine dinner featuring Mare Island Brewing Co., Road 31 Wine Co., and Tricycle Wines. 

Fortner's Road 31 Wine Co. is best known for making outstanding Napa Pinot Noir, which he's famous for delivering in his old green pickup truck whenever possible. "I'm a tiny, one-man show, and I like it that way," says Kent. 

The dinner will begin at Finca at 6:30 PM and the cost is $35 for the tasting menu and $35 for the optional beverage pairings, plus tax/service charge. Tickets can be purchased here
