Frey Ranch Dinner

May 27 @ 5:00 pm

$125

Bistro Napa presents the Frey Ranch Dinner.
The Freys have been in Nevada for longer than Nevada has been in the Union. The first Frey ranch was established in Genoa, Nevada in 1854, a full decade before the land it stood upon became a state.

The present Frey ranch was built in the 1860s and purchased in 1944 by Colby’s grandfather, who saved up the money over three years while living in a dugout with a dirt floor and a tin roof. It sits in Churchill County, which is home to just over 24,000 individuals. My drive from Reno that morning was a 70 mile trek through some of the driest land I’d ever seen: the idea that anything could be growing around these parts seemed unbelievable.

By Colby’s telling, it just takes experience and old-fashioned family know-how.

“We’re in the driest state in the nation, so not everybody can farm in the desert,” he says. “What’s unique about our situation is that my forefathers passed on the knowledge of what to do—and more importantly, what not to do—over the last 150 years.”
