About This Producer


A project initiated by Chuck Wagner of Caymus fame, Belle Glos represents a dramatic shift in California winemaking practices. Wagner had grown Pinot Noir on his Napa property in the 1960s and bottled it under the Caymus label until 1990, but realized Napa Valley did not provide optimal conditions for this cool-climate varietal. Shifting the focus from winemaking techniques to winegrowing location, Wagner's son Joseph sourced the first fruit for the Belle Glos label in 2001 from a 30 year-old vineyard in the much cooler, and coastal, Santa Maria Valley. The Wagner family had taken over that vineyard in 2000 and subsequently dropped fruit to reduce yields, creating the foundation for a wine of balance and purity. Joesph Wagner oversees winemaking at Belle Glos, producing a Pinot Blanc, a Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir blend, and three single vineyard Pinots: Taylor Lane Vineyard (Sonoma Coast); Clark & Telephone Vineyard (Santa Maria Valley); Las Alturas Vineyard (Santa Lucia Highlands).
