Caymus Wine Dinner

A winery owned, grown and operated by the Wagner Family.


For the Wagners, winemaking isn’t just a passion—it’s in their blood. Chuck Wagner’s
parents, Lorna Belle Glos and Charlie Wagner, were both born to families who helped
shaped Napa Valley’s wine industry in the late 1800s and beyond. At 19, he joined his
parents to create Caymus Vineyard in 1972. Today, he and his children carry on the Napa
Valley family winemaking legacy that can be traced back over 150 years and eight generations. 

The Wagners’ wines have long been hallmarks of the Ruth’s Chris wine list. And for this dinner,
we’ll be showcasing their collection alongside five incredible courses, like Ruth’s signature filet
paired with their world-famous Cabernet. Don’t miss your chance to try five family-made wines
over the course of one unique evening.
