Delta to serve wine from black-owned winery

Delta Air Lines said in business class on some flights, it will serve wine from Napa Valley’s first black-owned estate winery.

Atlanta-based Delta said wines from Brown Estate, whose president is Deneen Brown, will be on domestic Delta One class wine menus for winter 2019-2020. The two Brown Estate wines on that menu will be Betelgeuse Sauvignon Blanc and Chaos Theory red blend.

The airline said the move is part of its supplier diversity program.

Delta will hold a tasting Tuesday with its master sommelier Andrea Robinson and Brown Estate owners in its Sky Club at San Francisco International Airport and on a flight from San Francisco to New York.

According to Delta, the idea to partner with Brown Estate came from an employee, Carlyne Scott, who is part of the airline’s black community resource group.
