Live jazz music? Check. Beautiful people mingling? Check. Hors d’oeuvres? Check. Amazing cabernets and pinots? Check. Live owls? Check…wait, what?! Live owls were the centerpiece of an amazing wine tasting event held by Davis & Dyke Winery for their line of wines: Three Hoots. The event took place with a packed crowd at the ritzy Bloomingdale’s Mission View Room at the San Francisco Westfield Shopping Center. In attendance was co-founder Charles “Jiggs” Davis, co-founder Jim Dyke, Davis & Dyke Winery President Jim Chouinard, and Davis & Dyke Winery Chief Winemaker Gustavo A. Gonzalez who all spent the night being very personable and approachable to all the wine aficionados.
Davis & Dyke Winery is a new winery, having only started in 2009, and located in the beautiful, picturesque St. Helena, heart of the Napa Valley. A partnership between two life-long friends, Jim Dyke and Jiggs Davis, Three Hoots wine was born. With their commitment to nature and sustainable farmed vineyards, Three Hoots wine is the result of a life-long passion and dream.
The special wine tasting event at Bloomingdale’s was a packed house event with many people sampling the amazing offerings from Davis & Dyke Winery. Below are just a small sample of shots from the event. A special thanks to Gershoni and Chi Pak of Three Hoots Winery.
