Legends Aren't Born; They Are Made.

The Bogaty family has traditionally hailed from the Italian Alps where extended relatives of the Bogaty family own and operate a small vineyard. Two generations after Ludwig Bogati immigrated to the United States, James “Jim” Charles Bogaty decided it was time to return to his family's roots.

Three generations of the Bogaty family; Jim and Della, along with their son, Justin and daughters, Tiffany and Ashley, and numerous grandchildren continue the legacy.

Growing a Legacy

Our family foundation and determination are only the beginning; the legacy lives on through our valued guests and customers, like you! When you join our legacy, you can endure in complimentary tastings, access to our private, members-only room, an invitation to exclusive private events, and first claim to our small production wines.



Whether you're hosting a meeting with coworkers or kicking back with friends after a long days work, James Charles welcomes you to enjoy the best of both worlds! Stop by for an evening full of laughs with friends or make a reservation to treat your staff to a day out of the office.


You've met your soulmate and now you are diving head first into planning the wedding of your dreams. Let us say...Congratulations! Celebrate your forever after at James Charles. With gorgeous indoor and outdoor options, we will guide you every step of the way, from the Engagement party to the "I do."
