Joseph Wagner Launches Copper Cane Wines & Provisions, With New Products Upcoming

September 25, 2014

Joseph Wagner, founder of the Wagner Family of Wine’s Belle Glos and Meiomi Pinot Noir brands, has officially launched his new Copper Cane Wines & Provisions company. The group will adopt Wagner’s Meiomi brand, while Belle Glos will remain within the Chuck Wagner-led Wagner Family of Wine. Additionally, the Copper Cane portfolio will include the recently-launched Meiomi Chardonnay, which began shipping in May, and Elouan, a new Oregon Pinot Noir.

In the coming months, the company plans to also add Carne Humana, a new Napa red blend, and a range of high-end Zinfandel from California. Launched by Wagner in 2009, Meiomi has reported steady 40% growth over the past several years, and is projected to reach well over a half-million cases this year. The brand was named the Market Watch “Wine Brand of the Year” for 2014.
