|Michael Anthony's has, since its inception,
been instrumental in developing and promoting
unique culinary events here in the South Carolina
Lowcountry. This has led us to the formation of
programs we have offered that highlight the many
foods and wines of our Italian ethnic heritage as
well as many other well noted culinary
regions of the world.
Over the years we have hosted many wine
maker dinners with very well known and
respected winery owners and winemakers such
as Koerner Rombauer, Ferdinando Frescobaldi,
Heidi Barrett, David Ramey and
David Miner among others.
Our familiar wine tastings in our specialty Italian
market have introduced many wine enthusiasts to
more esoteric and enjoyable wines. Our annual
events such as our Christmas Eve Feast of the
Seven Fishes and Winter Truffle Dinner have
become renowned and anticipated each year.

|The Wagner Family of Wine
Four-Course Wine Dinner
featuring Caymus, Conundrum, Belle Glos & Mer Soleil
Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 6:30pm
$90 (plus tax and gratuity)
The Wagner family of wines includes world-acclaimed Caymus, Conundrum, Belle Glos and Mer Soleil. Each
winery represents a unique talent and passion amongst members of the Wagner family.
For five generations, the Wagner family has lived in Napa Valley originally settling in the area in the 1800s.
Caymus Vineyards was established when a mother and father and their son embarked on a family winery in 1972.
Charlie, Lorna and their son, Chuck, began work in 1971 by planning the construction of a barn-like structure for
the winery while they continued farming the already planted vineyards. Charlie and Chuck, along with one other
worker, pruned their 55 acres of grapes. With this initial effort began a bonded relationship which would endure
until Charlie's death in 2002. Charlie died in his 90th year of his hard working yet illustrious career.
Today, son Chuck Wagner is the winemaker and viticulturist for Caymus. Decisions are made lot-by-lot about
maceration times, fermentation temperatures, the type and toast level of French oak barrels, and the length of
barrel aging. Selected lots are blended to make wines Chuck Wagner believes best express the vineyards and
vintage. As Chuck Wagner says, "Growing grapes and winemaking takes a tenacious will and endless spirit to
be successful. I am proud that our family continues this way of life."
Charlie has passed his passion and knowledge onto his three children, Charlie (the second), Joseph and new
winemaking apprentice Jenny. The family tradition continues with Charlie making exquisite Chardonnay at Mer
Soleil in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County and Joseph making fine Pinot Noir under the Belle Glos
label in the coastal areas of California. Jenny has been learning the ropes at Caymus. Jon Bolta, a longtime (yet
unrelated) family friend continues as winemaker for Conundrum, perfecting his craft of making that puzzling, white
We are pleased to present wines from this illustrious family complemented by the fine cuisine of Executive Chef
Chris Johnson. To celebrate their 40th vintage, Caymus vineyards has released a 40th Anniversary Special
Edition of their 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon which will be the centerpiece of this exceptional evening.
Joining us to speak about the family history and their wines is Duane Rose, a representative of the Wagner Family.
