Aengus Wagner

Big Sur native Aengus Wagner moved back to Big Sur in the summer of ’91 and never left. He helped run the Big Sur Jazzfest for 8 years, until ’03. In 2000, he met Karen MacNeil through famed wine maker and friend Gary Pisoni. There laid the grounds for total inspiration in the world of wine. Their passions got him. Aengus works at Nepenthe, where he received much education about wine and service. Now, with the Festival team, he’s pleased to raise needed funds for the community through friendships fostered over years of of making friends as he goes about his daily life. These talented winemakers, chefs and volunteers all seem to have the same inspiration to celebrate the good life here in our “town.”
