2. Harry Allen Smith was able to take the first sip of alcohol once it became legal after Prohibition had been repealed in 1933. To pull this feat off, Smith bribed the telegraph operator to send a "three-click" advanced warning before announcing the repeal of Prohibition.
3. Three Clicks sources its grapes from Napa Valley vineyards.
4. Bruce and Danielle first began Three Clicks with Sauvignon Blanc and Petite Syrah.
