KQED Arts' five-part Bay Brilliant audio series continues this week with a focus on theater artist Lisa Marie Rollins.

Lisa Marie and the KQED crew (reporter Chloe Veltman and producer Ashleyanne Krigbaum) visit Brown Downtown in Napa—the tasting room of Brown Estate Vineyards—for wine imbibing and conversation.

Run by siblings David, Deneen and Coral Brown, Brown Estate is one of very few black-owned wineries in our region's wine country.

Click the play button above to listen to a discussion between Lisa Marie and Coral about the surprising connections between their work, their interest in ghost stories, and, of course, their love of a good glass of wine.

The segment is part of a special series in which Chloe and Ashleyanne take part in cultural adventures around the Bay Area with select KQED's Bay Brilliant honorees.
