Finally. After more than a year of dreaming, René Rentería was on his way to California.
For René—wine consultant, sommelier and wine journalist—this was more than just a trip to the Golden State. It was a distinct achievement that will undoubtedly change the rest of his life. After recently giving up a career as an international tax lawyer to pursue his true passion and a new career in the wine industry, he is finally fulfilling his dream. And the five-hour flight from Mexico City to Sacramento to study wine marketing at UC Davis Extension must have felt like an eternity.
