Caymus Vineyards Joins Pietro Fittipaldi for Rolex 24 at Daytona
As the 2023 motorsport season kicks off at Daytona, Caymus Vineyards enters its 10th year of motor racing involvement. To celebrate, the Napa-based winery is announcing a partnership with Haas F1 and World Endurance Championship (WEC) driver Pietro Fittipaldi at the upcoming Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Fittipaldi comes from a famous racing family and is widely regarded as one of the best racing drivers in the world. At just 26 years old, the Brazilian-born driver lists the 2021 Indianapolis 500 (Fastest Rookie Award), the 2022 24 Hours of Le Mans and his time as a Formula 1 driver as credits on his CV. As proof of his versatility, Fittipaldi claimed the 2011 NASCAR Late Model Championship, as well as a victory in NASCAR’s legendary Pepsi Fall Brawl.
“We are proud to partner with Pietro Fittipaldi as he competes in one of motorsports most iconic endurance events,” said Karen Perry, executive vice president of Caymus Vineyards. “Pietro’s high level of success is reflected in his global fan base and extensive social media presence – his level of excellence is a perfect match for our own passion to produce exceptional wine. Partnering with Pietro in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and connecting with dedicated racing fans is exciting for everyone at Caymus Vineyards and we look forward to cheering him on.”
The Rolex 24 at Daytona takes place at the historic Daytona International Speedway and is one of the most prestigious endurance races in the world. This iconic event is the next tick in Fittipaldi’s quest for the crown jewels of motorsport racing. He’s thrilled to have Caymus Vineyards on his helmet as he sets off on the 3.56-mile road course at the World Center of Racing.
“I am thrilled to partner with Caymus Vineyards for the Rolex 24, an elite race that aligns well with a luxury brand like theirs,” said Fittipaldi. “They have been in motorsport for a long time and have worked with great drivers, so I am honored to have Caymus on board. The Caymus brand is synonymous with special moments, and we hope to celebrate ours when the race ends on Sunday.
The Wagner family has a history in Napa Valley dating back to the 1850s. Over the years, they have adopted a hands-on work ethic and are constantly trying new ideas with the goal of creating exceptional wines. Whether venturing into different regions to find diverse sources of premium grapes or experimenting with new farming techniques, the result is a marriage of tradition with innovation, respect for the old and the promise of the new.
Chuck Wagner and his late parents, Lorna and Charlie, founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972. They were a family of farmers who worked together for decades to create a signature style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, the family’s two Cabernets – Caymus Napa Valley and Caymus Special Selection – are among the region’s most celebrated wines. Chuck now works alongside two of his children, Charlie and Jenny, and the family produces various wines from Napa Valley, other parts of California and beyond. Continually looking for new ideas, they feel extremely lucky to spend their days growing grapes and making wine. For more information, please visit caymus.com or wagnerfamilyofwine.com.
