"Conundrum Red is a non traditional blend of Californiared grapes. What are the varietals used? It's proprietary and we believe the fun is in exploring this intriguing wine. I am proud to be able to continue my grandfather's practices.... for three generations we have been breaking the rules. This wine tastes great with many foods; best with highly flavored foods, especially spicy tomatoe based sauces, dark spices or foods enhance with BBQ sauce... and really... anything that will fit on your grill. Serve slightly to well chilled. I hope your family and friends enjoy this wine as much as mine do." - Charlie Wagner
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.
