Wagner Family of Wine
Paws Up is pleased to present a family of exceptional California wines from a family of exceptional winemakers: the Wagners. More than 45 years ago, Chuck Wagner founded Caymus Vineyards with his father in Napa Valley. Their collection of wines, with a strong reputation for quality and consistency, is produced from the premier winegrowing regions in California—with family-grown Cabernet grapes from eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations. Wagner Special Selection Cabernet has brought particular acclaim—in fact, it’s the only wine in the world twice honored as Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year.
Today, three of Chuck’s children—Charlie, Jenny and Joey—represent a third generation in the family business. The Wagner wine family has grown to multiple labels and several varietals. Besides Caymus, wine lovers can now choose from labels Mer Soleil (Chardonnay), Conundrum (red and white blends), Emmolo (Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc) and Red Schooner (Malbec, among others). Obviously, the Wagners share a love of wine and continue to balance the family tradition of pushing the boundaries to make ever-better wine.
