Wagner Family - Wine Tasting today at Forsyth

Taste today Saturday October 19 - at Forsyth:

Wagner Family of Wines (and a Nephew)
Join us this Saturday for an amazing tasting of The Wagner Family of Wines along with the second release of Carne Humana from Chuck Wagner’s Nephew, this is a lineup not to be missed (11-3 or until the bottles run out) at our Forsyth location 7435 Forsyth Blvd in Clayton.  317.727.8788

Carne Humana- Named for the historic Rancho Carne Humana (Human Flesh), granted to Dr. Edward Turner Bale inn 1841 by Mexican Governor Juan Alvarado, for services rendered to the California forces. Rancho Carne Humana stretched from stretching from present-day Rutherford northward to Calistoga, ending at Tubbs Lane and including present-day St. Helena, starting just North of George C. Yount’s Rancho Caymus. In 1861 Dr. Bales daughter and her Charles Krug founded Charles Krug Winery, Napa Valley’s oldest operating winery.

Wagner Family of Wines: For five generations, my family has lived and loved the Napa Valley. Our grandfather settled here in the 1800s and from that moment forward, we've grown to understand there is simply no substitute for an intimate knowledge of the land that only comes by "living" in the vineyard. Working the land with our own hands has given us insights into California winemaking that can't be found in any book or corporate farm manual

We are the Wagner Family of Wine: Chuck Wagner continues to direct the world-reknown Cabernet program at Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley; Charlie is making exquisite Chardonnay at Mer Soleil in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County; Joseph is making fine Pinot Noir under the Belle Glos label in the coastal areas of California; Jenny is learning the ropes here at Caymus and ah yes, our longtime winemaker for Conundrum, Jon Bolta, continues his craft of making that puzzling, white wine blend
