Napa Valley Black-Owned Winery Partners With Delta Air Lines

What started out as a way to celebrate Black History Month has now turned into a long-term partnership between a black-owned winery and a major United States airline.

Napa Valley’s Brown Estate Vineyards is partnering with Delta Air Lines to be featured on Delta’s 2019–2020 winter wine menu aboard its domestic Delta One flights. Featured wines will include Brown Estate’s 2017 Betelgeuse Sauvignon Blanc and 2017 Chaos Theory red blend, selected by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. Yesterday, Delta hosted a surprise tasting with Brown Estate owners and Robinson in the San Francisco Sky Club and onboard for customers traveling on a flight to New York.

“Partnering with innovative, diverse suppliers from certified small, minority, and women-owned businesses like Brown Estate is fundamental to Delta’s strategy to keep climbing year-round,” said Heather Ostis, Vice President of Supply Chain Management. “Seeking employee perspectives and leveraging unique ideas brings us closer to meeting that goal, while creating the highest quality experience for our customers.”

Brown Estate was founded in 1996 and is headed by president Doreen Brown and winemaker David Brown. According to their website, in April 2017 Brown Estate opened their Brown Downtown tasting room on the re-emerging First Street corridor in the heart of downtown Napa.

“We are delighted to partner with Delta Air Lines,” said Deneen Brown. “Delta’s all-in commitments to the spirit of inclusion and to their wine program are perfectly aligned with our core values at Brown Estate.”

The 2017 Betelgeuse Sauvignon Blanc is described “endless summer in a bottle” — straw gold in color, with refreshing clarity. Tropical fruit comingles with subtle citrus, fever grass and lemon verbena, while night-blooming jasmine and honeysuckle are complemented by a cascade of stone fruit, lychee, pineapple and guava.

Brown Estate’s 2017 Chaos Theory is a well-balanced red blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel, greets the nose with a lively aroma of ripe Rainer cherries, blackberry compote, winter spice and heavy cream. Hints of Asian apple and Meyer lemon are followed by dark chocolate, tiramisu and fresh-baked croissants.
