"George has been with me about 25 years. It's a natural progression for him to buy the place and I retire from it," he said. "I put my time in a good business and I know he will carry it on as I did."
Mr. Wagner, who lives in Monterey, will continue a job as the production manager for the Monterey Jazz Festival.
