“We feel extremely fortunate to spend our days farming grapes and making wine, following a path laid out by past generations of our family. One of our biggest fortunes is sharing good company, great food and delicious wine.”Chuck, Charlie and Jenny Wagner
A long history in Napa Valley
Charlie Wagner Sr. (1912-2002)
Charlie was a farmer through-and-through. Before co-founding Caymus, he grew captivated by wine and winemaking, becoming a serious home winemaker. For Charlie, working hard was never something to avoid. He showed us what it means to endure and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
Lorna Belle Glos Wagner (1915-2013)
Without Lorna, Caymus would not have succeeded. She did not receive much public attention. But whether working the bottling line (or keeping everyone in line), she built a solid foundation to build on. Lorna set an example for living a farming life, quietly caring for the land and people around her.
Everyone who comes to Caymus has a story and has made us what we are today. Thank you all for being a part of our Caymus family.
