In 1972, Chuck Wagner started Caymus Vineyards with his parents, Charlie and Lorna, with a bold plan and an uncharted future. Having already established deep roots as farmers in Napa Valley since 1857, The Wagner family became synonymous with the locals. Working together for decades, Chuck Wagner and his parents established the family’s work ethic, appetite for innovation, down-to-earth sensibility, and deep appreciation of the pleasures of good food and wine enjoyed with family and friends.
Today, Caymus Cabernet is one of Napa Valley’s most celebrated wines, made from grapes farmed in 8 of Napa Valley’s 16 appellations. The signature style of Caymus is unavoidable as each sip of rich, dark fruit and ripe tannins wraps the palate in a soft blanket of pleasurable flavors.
