A Nebraska native, Matt’s culinary education began in San Francisco where he interned at Quince and his love for Italian food was born. From there, he gained a deep understanding of food seasonality while working at Foreign Cinema and eventually became Chef de Cuisine at Flour + Water and Salumeria where he honed his pasta and salumi skills. After a brief consulting stint in Chicago, Matt spent much of 2014 cooking and traveling in Colombia and Italy before landing in Portland to join the Renata family.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chris began his career in wine as a server, happily and accurately blind tasting any wine placed before him. While working at the Village Pub in Woodside, he realized that he spent more than half of his time thinking about wine and so decided to focus his career on sharing his passion for wine with guests. He continued to study his subject and went on to direct the wine programs for Aqua and the Delfina Restaurant Group in San Francisco. Chris moved to Portland in 2014 to start working towards the birth of Renata and is excited to share his love for wine with his new city.
