Over 40 years ago, The Wagner Family first made a name for themselves producing quality Cabernet Sauvignon under their Caymus Vineyards label in 1972. It was the 1973 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon that put them on the map as one of the lead Napa Valley Wineries. Twenty Five years later, as the next generation of Wagners followed in the footsteps of their parents; the Wagner Family’s portfolio of quality wines has expanded. Oldest son, Charlie Wagner Jr. produces high quality wines from the Mer Soleil, Conundrum and Red Schooner labels and daughter Jenny Wagner producing top Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot from her family’s Rutherford and Oak Knoll estates under Emmolo.

Attendees will enjoy a guided tasting by Danielle Christensen, Florida Representative of Caymus Vineyards, that includes the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignons we’ve all come to cherish (especially when it comes to celebrating special occasions!) as well an introduction to the expanded portfolio of next generation Wagner Family wines.

The tasting will be paired with a light lunch.

Where will the festival events take place?
Check individual event listings to identify the various locales where events will be held throughout Ocala/Marion County. In a few event instances, the locales will not be disclosed until tickets are purchased.

How do I attend the Ocala Culinary Festival?
All events require tickets, which can be purchased on this website as the event lineup is unveiled. Tickets for certain events will start to go on sale on November 1, 2017.

Can my diet restrictions be accommodated during festival events?
No. Unfortunately, the logistics of carrying off these events in various locales do not give chefs the room to be flexible with their menus. Chefs participating in the festival are given creative license to serve whatever inspires them—without the need to anticipate various diet restrictions.

What happens if an event is sold out?
Tickets are very limited, especially in regards to some of the smaller, more intimate festival experiences. We encourage you to consider other events in the lineup if your first choice gets sold out. If an event has been sold out and you’d like to have your name added to a wait list in case we have a cancellation, please feel free to email us this request at [email protected].

What should I wear?
Check each individual event listing for suggestions on attire.

Can I bring my children to the festival?
We love children! However, we cannot allow anyone under 21 to attend the festival.
