History

Established in 1906 and named after Joseph Wagner’s, head winemaker, grandmother Lorna Belle Glos Wagner,  Belle Glos produces top quality and very distinctive Pinot Noirs from the top wine growing regions of California.

Made up of four different but equally high quality vineyards, the location of each is very much coastal but climatic conditions can vary significantly, with cooling fog and wind very much helping the growing of the fruit.

The four vineyards are Dairyman, Clark & Telephone, Las Alturas, and Taylor Lane. Each produce Pinot Noir but with each come subtle differences that make each wine a little different while, at the same time, demonstrate the highest quality and classic characteristics of this prized varietal.

Belle Glos is part of the Wagner Family of Wines which include, amongst others, Caymus and Mer Soleil.

Interesting Facts

Belle Glos is named after Joseph Wagner’s grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, and is made up of 4 distinctive vineyards named Dairyman, Clark & Telephone, Las Alturas and Taylor Lane.

Dairyman, previously a dairy farm hence the name, is located in the south of the Russian River Valley, and the closeness to the Pacific coast results in a longer growing season due to the early morning fogs and the cool Pacific breezes. The fruit produced is small but with concentrated flavourful berries.

Las Alturas lies in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County - one of the highest-plantable sites in the county. The location ensures cool coastal conditions mixed with almost permanent sunshine and great soils – the combination produces the superb fruit that goes into Las Alturas Pinot Noir.

Clark & Telephone is named after its location close to the corner of Clark Avenue and Telephone Road and is in the Santa Maria Valley. It benefits from cooling fogs and winds from the Pacific.

Taylor Lane is only 6 miles from the Pacific Coast – that grapes of any quality are grown here is testament to the skill and determination of the growers.
