The Team

David Gibbs

David Gibbs is co-owner of Augustine Wine Bar, one of Food & Wine Magazines “10 Best Wine Bars in America”, as well as Mirabelle Wine Bar, Sushi Note, and music venue Syd Norman’s Pour House.

When not pouring wine, he can occasionally be seen pursuing his other passions: playing guitar, and washing dishes.

Not necessarily at the same time.

Matthew Weaver

Matthew is a veteran producer of television, film and theater has served as the head of Media Weaver Entertainment since it’s founding in 2012. Emmy, Grammy and Tony nominated, his credits include Chef’s Table, Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Broadway’s Rock of Ages.

He is also an investor in Augustine Wine Bar and an investor/minority owner in Sushi Note.

Andy Paxson

Andy brings his many years working in restaurant operations to the Augustine Wine Car team. After leaving his corporate restaurant career in 2010, Andy co-founded Simplethings Restaurants in Los Angeles.

Andy teamed with Dave Gibbs of Augustine Wine Bar to open Sushi Note in Sherman Oaks, CA in 2018 and The Bourbon Room in Hollywood, CA in 2019.
