California winemaking is a family affair for Wagner. The youngest son of Chuck Wagner (Caymus Vineyards), this father of six is a fifth-generation Napa Valley winemaker. At 19, Joe launched Belle Glos, dedicated to producing vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from California’s top coastal regions. He then developed Meiomi Pinot Noir, a brand that Constellation purchased for $315 million in 2015. Today, he manages Copper Cane Wines & Provisions’ portfolio of five wine brands. He’s also focused on purchasing prime vineyard locations, including a parcel in the Santa Rita Hills that he hopes to plant to Pinot Noir.
