     In light of recent news of the book club, Sistahs on the Reading Edge, being criminalized and removed from the Napa Valley Wine Train, OFPC would like to extend a thanks to the vineyards in the region who have created welcoming spaces to gather, celebrate and organize.

    To show our gratitude and highlight the businesses whose values are rooted in racial and economic justice, we have joined forces with The Mexican Bus to offer a tour of Black and Latino owned vineyards! Join us for a magical ride on our Wine Soul Train. Meet business leaders defining our food culture. Learn about agricultural practices, labor issues, and economic leadership to create a just food system.

    What: The Wine Soul Train Tour

    When: September 26th 2015, 10AM-6PM

    Where: Napa and Sonoma Valley Vineyards

    Cost: $100 per seat (snacks, lunch, and wine tastings provided)

    What to Expect:

    We will begin and end our tour at the corner of 9th Street and Washington Street in Oakland, in front of Miss Ollie's. We will first enjoy some of Chef Sarah Kirnon's Creole Donuts and coffee before we launch at 10AM sharp. We head north to visit various vineyards for wine tasting and discussion. We will enjoy our lunch against a panoramic backdrop. We will have the opportunity to taste and purchase wines, as well as meet business leaders in the wine country who are paving the way for black and brown ownership of vineyards and wineries. We expect to return to Oakland at 6PM.

    Council Director, Esperanza Pallana, will be following up with day of logistics when you purchase your ticket. If you have further questions, feel free to contact her at
