( james ) recently, kron four's philippe djegal made the trip up north to spotlight the first black- owned estate winery in the napa valley. halle lewis/wine educator- "pictured above is dr. brown and mrs. brown and mohammed ali checking out mrs. brown at a party." and, over the years, that's the kind of company bassett brown and his wife marcela have kept. not bad for a man from jamaica and a woman from panama.nats- in 1980, soon after the couple bought an abandoned ranch in
saint helena... they transformed the property nats- putting their hearts and souls into growing and selling grapes to local winemakers... nats- blazing a trail and setting the standard for aspiring black wine connoisseurs in the napa valley.halle lewis/wine educator- "being a black-owned winery and being family-owned, um, and just starting from the bottom and making their way up, now having two, two businesses, um, to run, i think is the allure, and just people wanting to support them." doctor and misses brown have since retired... staying mainly at their estate and vineyard in saint helena. the family business is now in the hands of their children.halle lewis/wi the pink shirt is deneen, our president." originally, brown estate wine educator halle (hal-ee) lewis says the brown's wished their kids would become doctors... but the trio had other plans, and it looks like they made the right choice. in 1996,
they officially launched the brown label... and, 20 years later, the brown's produced their 20th vintage. nats- "haha." to date, the elder brown's mainly keep to themselves... occasionally hosting some members at the estate -- boasting a wine cave.halle lewis/wine educator- "this is a really fun wine. rosemary's a lot of bright acidity." almost two years ago -- the family opened brown downtown. nats- "cheers to you." a second-floor wine tasting room in the heart napa... at the corner of coombs and first streets.nats- "haha." here -- the brown label and it's reputation continues to grow... the family specializing in zinfandel and attracting people from all walks of life... inspiring young professionals to dream big. chynna steele-johnson/visitor- "for many black people, we've either been excluded from many businesses or, you know, um, career paths. so, it's important for us to have representation in every area, and to understand we can do anything that we want." and, if you're really good at what you do -- word of mouth
travels fast.anita thrower/visitor- "we heard about it through some friends and relatives about this being here, and we're actually celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary. so, we said, hey, lets go check that winery out, you know, african american winery."arnold thrower/visito r- "i think it's a perfect example of what we as a people have been able to do, uh, with what we were afforded with." a valley treasure -- the product of heart and determination... generationally sustained by a deep sense of family. in napa, philippe djegal, kron four news. ( james ) coming up ... we take a look at some of the biggest winners from last night's oscars. ( james ) plus ... check your freezer. the boston market brand is recalling one of its frozen dinners. we'll explain why. (robin)
morning. 173-thousand pounds of frozen meals are being recalled because of glass and plastic in the meals. the recall involves the boston market homestyle meal brand of boneless pork ribs. they were made from dec. 7, 2018 to feb. 15, 2019. so far there have been no reports of injuries from the glass and plastic. if you have the meals ... you are urged to throw them away or return them to the store. ( darya ) coming up on the kron 4 morning buzz... the best oscars ever.. less shtick, more stars and more diversity than ever..
which won for best song. ( darya )the show was great because there were fewer stupid scripted jokes and more stars doing unpredictable things.. like samuel l. jackson interrupting the show to tell spike lee the knicks had finally won. (sot) "after 18 straight losing games the knicks won. the score was 130 to 118" spike was excited about that.. but he was even more excited to hear he won the oscar for best adapted screen play for black of my 3 favorite movies this year: the other that i loved was green book.. which won for best picture and best supporting actor mahershala ali.. shout out to oakland
where he grew up and to st. mary's where he played basketball on a scholarship from 1992-94. he was solid on the court.. but obviously even better on the big screen.. he won an oscar for moonlight in 2017.. and he was great in hidden figures, house of cards, the place beyond the pines, and the third season of true detective. i said i had three favorite movies this year: the third is: bohemian rapsody.. here's rami malek sans fake teeth.. accepting the best male actor award for embodying freddie murcury the flamboyant frontman for queen.. the movie takes you on his wildly entertaining and tragic ride to stardome. then there's the x-rated video starring patriots owner robert kraft getting umm.. "serviced" at a florida "day spa".. what? this is a family show i'm trying to spare you the details, but if the video is as graphic as the police say it is.. it's going to be hard for kraft to maintain his innocence.. which he's doing
right now. it's only a misdomeanor charge.. but this is a huge fall from grace for the nfl owner who gets a superbowl win and an arrest warrant in the same month. the chief of police says he was as stunned as everybody else to see kraft caught up in the sting to bust human traffickers. they say the video shows kraft getting out of chaffeured car.. and everything he did inside from start to finish. if that video hits the internet it will be even worse for him than whatever punishment the nfl decides to do. sorry to end the buzz on such a down note, but that's it for today.
