Taste of Wine and Food had the pleasure of meeting with Joe Wagner, Copper Cane Wine and Provisions owner. Joe is one of Napa Valley's most intriguing and innovative winemakers. We had great tastings across the Belle Glos, Boen, and Quilt brands. Note that the 2016 Boen Pinot Noir was one of Taste of Wine and Food's Top 10 Best for the first half of 2018. We loved our candid interview with Joe at his hunting cabin retreat. Joe shared his love of winemaking along with the science and finesse of his outside of the box thinking when he creates Copper Cane's wines. A truly inspiring meeting!
Thank you Joe and Lloyd, Copper Cane Guest Relations, for your time!
