If nothing else, Jim DiMenna, President of Red Sun Farms, is true to himself. Between a dedication to greenhouse growing, a love for fine wine, and an aptitude for procuring knowledge, this industry veteran has his cake and eats it, too. But, in an alternate reality, here are a few IFs that he just might indulge…
If I could alter time, I would enjoy being 20 years younger. The greenhouse business is just now getting a lot of traction and having 20 more years to be a part of it would be exciting for me.
I would have a chef’s collection tomato blend with feta cheese and Greek dressing, an Anthony’s pizza with spicy oil, and a Bevan Cabernet glass of red wine.
A winemaker and vineyard owner in Napa Valley, California—crafting a 100-point Cabernet Sauvignon and knowing how to accomplish that treasure would be a dream beyond imagination.
Robert Mondavi—to hear how he decided to immigrate to the United States from Italy and his dreams and inspirations of becoming a global legend in the wine industry.
A corkscrew, a case of my best wine, and a bathing suit.
The chance to say goodbye to my father before he passed away.
Where We Started and Where We Are Now: The Life and Times of a Vegetable Seller from Childhood to Adulthood.
Lady Sings the Blues: The Billie Holiday story with Diana Ross and Billy D. Williams. It features amazing blues music and is a true-life story that is very impactful.
I would choose the first day of the rest of my life.
Knowledge—to have the right answer to every question I was asked.
