Oakland nonprofit organizes “The Wine Soul Train” after racially-charged incident

OAKLAND (KRON) — There is an alternative to a traditional wine train tour after a racially-charged incident in August on the Napa Valley Wine Train.

You might remember KRON4 reported on an incident in which members of a book group were kicked off the train for talking and laughing too loudly.

Of the 11 women removed, 10 of them were black and train officials apologized.

And now, an Oakland nonprofit has organized another wine tour being called “The Wine Soul Train.”

The trip will take up to 35 people on a tour of black and Latino-owned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.

The tour bus leaves Miss Ollie’s restaurant in Oakland Saturday morning.
