Screaming Chief is the pride of Jeff and Denise Bowman. Jeff, who retired as Fire Chief of Anaheim and San Diego, is now “Co-Chief” with Denise of the Bowmans’ estate (JD Vineyard) in the gentle, rolling hills of northwest Escondido, where the long, mild growing season and mineral-rich soil provide ideal conditions for Malbec and Cabernet Franc to thrive on the vines.
The grapes are tended by hand, and after harvest, the wine is handcrafted just a stone’s throw away at Belle Marie Winery, a family-run boutique operation that is one of Southern California’s most respected wine producers.
The name, “Screaming Chief” is a tribute to firefighting in the 19th century. Without the luxury of radios and other modern electronic tools, a fire ground commander of the period would shout his orders through a “speaking trumpet’, so he was referred to as a “Screaming Chief.”
Screaming Chief Wines are poured at the following local Restaurants:
Vintana Wine + Dine, Escondido
Donovan’s Steak and Chop House, La Jolla
Dolce, Rancho Santa Fe
Anaheim White House, Orange County
