Chuck Wagner

Chuck Wagner


Owner, Caymus Vinyards & Wagner Family of Wines

Chuck Wagner was born into a family of farmers and winemakers with deep roots in Napa Valley. In 1857, his great-great grandfather captained a wagon train to California from Bible Grove, Missouri.

Chuck was just 19 when he started Caymus Vineyards with his late parents, Charlie and Lorna Wagner, and they spent many wonderful years working side-by-side. Chuck continues to make two renowned Cabernet Sauvignons, Caymus Napa Valley and Caymus Special Selection. 

Several years ago, he introduced Bonanza, a California Cabernet Sauvignon that reflects his spirit of discovery and celebrates good wine as a simple pleasure of life. Chuck also produces Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif from Suisun Valley, a “hidden gem” wine region only a short drive southeast of Napa Valley. “Durif” is synonymous with Petite Sirah, and we added “Grand” to the name for this wine’s grand style and luxurious softness.

Today, Caymus remains family-run, and two of Chuck’s children, Charlie and Jenny Wagner, work alongside him. Instilling his love of the land in his kids, Chuck remains a farmer at heart. He believes that at the end of the day, wine is meant to be shared with family and friends. And he marvels at his good fortune to be living in Napa Valley and working in the wine business.
