Tyler Rodde discovered his love of pure Italian cooking in the kitchen at Oliveto Restaurant and Cafe in Oakland, CA. In 2010, Tyler returned to his roots in the Napa Valley to open Oenotri, a southern-Italian restaurant featuring a daily-changing menu of rustic dishes built around the freshest local products available.
Reflective of Tyler’s passion for handcrafted food, Oenotri offers a menu with more than 20 different types of house-made salami, an array of handmade fresh and dry pasta as well as exclusive olive oil sourced from within the Napa Valley.
Tyler’s vision for Oenotri continues to grow and expand. Tyler has joined other local chefs in preserving and managing the gardens surrounding the Copia Center for Wine, Food & the Arts in Napa and has also launched an exclusive 4-acre culinary garden. These two projects provide an ever-increasing portion of the produce featured each day on Oenotri’s menu.
Tyler has established Oenotri as one the Bay Area’s premier venues for Italian cuisine as well as an essential component of any Wine Country itinerary. This rock star chef will be serving his amazing cuisine to music & food fans at BottleRock Napa Valley from Friday May 30th – June 1st in the Platinum tent. See you in Napa.
Meantime enjoy the tasty podcast where Chef Tyler rocks out one of his amazing pasta dishes.
