As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
Tag: Napa Wine Train
When my friend Karen asked me if I was interested in taking a trip on the Napa Valley Wine Train, I thought she was joking. She’s a rather sophisticated woman– one who lived in the Napa Valley for ten years. She must know something I don’t. Or someone. That someone turned out to be Ryan Graham, director of the Wine Train’s wine program– an old friend of Karen’s from her time at the infamous Bistro Don Giovanni.
My initial reaction was snobbish. I’d always considered the Wine Train as a gimmicky tourist attraction, upon which the locals would never ride or, at least, openly admit to riding. Sort of like the Disneyland Railroad, but with alcohol.
