The Wagners come from a long line of grape growers and winemakers in Napa Valley, with a farming tradition dating back to the 1850s. Chuck Wagner's parents, Lorna Belle Glos and Charlie Wagner Sr., were both born to families that helped shape Napa Valley's wine industry in the late 1800's and beyond, through their hard work, dedication, pioneering spirit and resilience in the face of adversity. They are the Glos, Stice and Wagner families.
It was in 1972 that Charlie and Lorna -along with their son Chuck - decided to go "all in" and formalize the family's long-standing tradition of winemaking when they recognized they could make a better living by selling the great quality "home" wines they had been making from grapes they were growing on their property. They established their own winery and decided to name it "Caymus Vineyards," after a Mexican land grant owned by George Yount that had once encompassed their land.
In 1975, Chuck and his dad noticed that there were a few barrels that tasted better than the rest, so they decided to separate them from the batch and bottle them under a new label called "Special Selection." In 1989, Wine Spectator awarded the prestigious "Wine of the Year Award" for their 1984 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, and again five years later for their 1990 vintage. While it's true that Caymus Vineyards is the only winery in the world to have twice earned Wine Spectator's highest accolade, the Wagners did not stop there - it motivated them to keep striving to make better and better wines each and every year.
