“It is a testament to your discerning taste and appreciation for the finest wines that California has to offer; a badge of honor that represents the pinnacle of winemaking excellence.”
The Caymus story is one of two families with extraordinarily long histories of winemaking in Napa Valley being joined by marriage. Its founders, Charlie and Lorna Wagner can trace their ancestors’ Napa viticulture legacy back a collective 400 years.
In 1972, after decades of making wine under the Wagner Family Winery label, Charlie, Lorna, and their son Chuck launched Caymus Vineyards. It was only one vintage later when their 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon struck gold. Wine critics raved over the rich complexity, and the praise they received has not been quieted since.
As one of the most celebrated wineries in the region, their continued excellence, innovation, and dedication to the region are captured in each vintage. To this day, they remain a 100% family-owned company, even as they have branched out, now producing more than a half-dozen labels, most of which are also already household names.
Every bottle of Caymus in your cellar is a piece of Napa Valley’s great history. It is a testament to your discerning taste and appreciation for the finest wines that California has to offer; a badge of honor that represents the pinnacle of winemaking excellence.
