There are very wineries that excite the Nicholas Wines Faithful more than the Caymus’ family’s Belle Glos project. Always the innovators, it seems like they keep adding to their impressive line. Today we’re welcoming another new first from Belle Glos and it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.
Joe Wagner is the man behind the project – the youngest son of wine legend Chuck Wagner, (founder of Caymus) who learned firsthand from his father before he started winemaking himself at the ripe age of 17.
Two years later, at just 19 years of age, Joe told his father he wanted to launch Belle Glos (named after Caymus co-founder and his grandmother Lorna Belle Glos). The Wagners hadn’t branched too far into Pinot Noir, but Joe is the family’s forward thinker.
A few years later he’d launch another successful brand Meomi – which would become so huge, he’d later sell it for over $300 million. He did it to continue to buy vineyards to grow his Belle Glos project, which he’s hoping will continue to change the landscape of wine.
