John Anthony Truchard is the son of famed Napa Valley winemaker Tony Truchard who is approaching 50 successful years at the family’s namesake winery. He spent most of his childhood helping his father in the vineyard, including driving the tractor and picking grapes starting at age 12(!) but eventually ran off to become an IP lawyer in the Big Apple.
But the wine industry (and his mother) beckoned him home. When he finally made the call, he dove in with both feet. He returned to Carneros to help run the family business, learn all about vineyard management and take on General Manager responsibilities.
Then – a few short years later – he’d hang up his own shingle, founding the John Anthony Family of Wines and he developed the concept of an unapologetically Napa Chard called, “Butter” that would grow to become one of the world’s most popular wines.
But like many recent Napa upstarts, the opportunities in Paso were too enormous to ignore, so he took his executive winemaker, Jeff Kandarian (Justin, King Estate) along with him and is launching his flagship Cabernet. After tasting it, I can assure you that the sky’s the limit.
