Partner Spotlight : John Anthony Vineyards

John Anthony Vineyards is built on heritage, winegrowing and winemaking. Vintners and Founders Michele and John Anthony Truchard have been active supporters of the V Foundation Wine Celebration for over 10 years. John and his wife Michele first attended the celebration as guests at the gala and auction, quickly became involved and have been a significant contributor and sponsor of the event ever since.

John’s Mother, Jo-Ann Truchard is a cancer survivor, having been diagnosed in 2003. John and Michele were drawn to the organization’s mission to fund early-stage research into curing various forms of cancer, research that might otherwise not be pursued. The V Foundation’s role, described as being “the venture capitalist of cancer research” felt like an extension of the Truchard’s beliefs and values.

The V Foundation Wine Celebration Family is a highly productive network of vintners, donors, brilliant scientists, administrators, organizers and volunteers who together are making powerful strides in cutting-edge cancer research. The celebration itself is a wonderful experience to be surrounded by this family, but an important annual reminder of how much our help is needed and the incredible advancements being made as a result.

As this year’s Vintner Grant Honorees, John and Michele join Chad and Sage Steele to taste through a personally curated selection of their small-production, estate wines. This collection will be available as a special 2020 V Foundation Wine Celebration Tasting Package, exclusively available to our supporters. 100% of proceeds from the collection will be donated to support V Foundation’s mission to finding a cure for cancer through research. Join us for this LIVE Facebook event on Wednesday, July 1st at 5:00pm PST! Click the link here to reserve your spot.

  • 2019 John Anthony Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2018 John Anthony Napa Valley Chardonnay
  • 2016 John Anthony Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Thank you to John & Michele, and the entire John Anthony Family of Wines for their unwavering support to our cause!
