I was appalled at what happened to the Reading Edge book club on the Napa Valley Wine Train. What happened to them is a prime example of why I wrote THE UNDERWOOD’S OF NAPA VALLEY SERIES. I wrote this series about an African-American winery in Napa Valley when I became aware of the presence of Black wineries in the Valley. I never knew they existed, and my question was why. I felt if I never wrote the series, how would people ever know. I have a list of African American wineries, past and present, listed in the back of KENTON’S VINTAGE AFFAIR, book 1 in the series. The book establishes the title character as an African-American vintner and the obstacles he overcomes in the wine industry. I am sorry for what happened to the ladies on the Napa Valley Wine Train.
