Napa Valley, CA – Delta Airlines ended Black History Month on a high note by announcing a partnership with Brown Estate Winery during a wine tasting at the San Francisco Delta Sky Club.

Brown Estate Winery is the only and first black-owned winery in the United States wine capital of Napa Valley.

A selection of Brown Estate wines were passed to Andrea Robinson, Delta’s Master Sommelier, for consideration in the airline’s seasonally rotating wine menu. Only the very best selections earn Robinson’s stamp of approval. Two Brown Estate selections made the cut.

Deneen Brown, who founded the company with her siblings 24 years ago and now serves as president of Brown Estate Vineyards, calls the selection is a major win for her and her family.

“We are delighted to partner with Delta Air Lines,” Deneen Brown said. “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.”

Delta will feature Brown Estate wines in the winter of 2019-2020 as part of its commitment to supplier diversity.
