DOWNTOWN OAKLAND'S NEWEST WINE SHOP AND BAR, COCO NOIR, IS BLACK AND WOMAN OWNED

Opening just in time for the holiday season, downtown Oakland premiered its newest food & wine experience called CoCo Noir Wine Shop and Bar which opened this past Friday. This new and promising establishment is a woman and minority-owned urban Wine Shop, eatery, tasting room, event space, and online store (with its own app to come in the near future). CoCo Noir will be the perfect go place for indoor and outdoor dining as well as private events.

With years of wine entrepreneurship and industry experience under her belt, Alicia Kidd, who is the creator and founder of this newest hot spot, CoCo Noir, specializes in providing retail, distribution, wholesale, importing, and tech solutions for minority and women winemakers. 

Located in one of the premiere downtown locations for dining and inside the sleek, high end Atlas building and nestled in Oakland's Black Arts Movement Business District, CoCo Noir will offer wine tasting and of course the opportunity to purchase wine (including champagne and beer) from prominent winemakers, worldwide. In addition, to offering diverse wine brands, the shop will also offer beer, non alcoholic beverages, and small tapas bites also curated by BIPOC, POC, and women chefs and other women companies. This is an amazing and unique opportunity to have a full, well-rounded experience of both wine and small bites curated by some of the best winemakers and chefs of color in their industries.

Ms. Kidd's mission with CoCo Noir Wine Shop and Bar and with all of her business entities, is to create diversity, inclusivity, with a social impact focus while providing an integrated approach comprised of selling wines offered by BIPOC, POC, Women, and other diverse winemakers & negotiants. 

In addition, Alicia Kidd has designed a mobile app for CoCo Noir Wine Shop and Bar as well.The app will be a digital center for the wine novice and enthusiast to the aficionado and connoisseur. It will be accessible on both IOS and Andriod Cell phones.

The mobile app features will focus on two groups of wine and business consumers in both the wine and food space. The wine consumer features will include access to the winemaker's directory, interactive discussion boards, rating/reviews/tasting notes options, and access to so much more. The business consumer includes winemakers, sommeliers, wineshops, and chefs. The mobile app benefit offerings include personalizing profile options on our mobile app platform, access to additional marketing services, access to CoCo Noir's growing customer network, and so much more. 

Coco Noire Wine Shop & Bar will not only be the premier wine shop in the Bay Area but will definitely make its mark worldwide.
