“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.
Introducing a new Cabernet from the state of California
A small, inaugural release from Caymus Vineyards, this wine is a California-appellation Cabernet Sauvignon – supple, dark and rich, bearing the signature hallmarks of Caymus. It is sourced from sites throughout the state which feature climatic conditions, soils and topography that are ideally suited to Cabernet. This project stems from excitement over California’s diverse vineyard land, often in lesser-known areas, with the potential to produce exceptional Cabernet. You can watch a video and learn more by scanning the QR code on the back label of this wine.
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.
