WOW: John Anthony Vineyards

WOW: Wine of the Week

John Anthony Vineyards

Chandon Nautical Summer
The Truchard family is VERY well known in California - their involvement in the wine industry began in 1887.  Since their debut in Texas (yes, Texas) making wine - the family has amassed over 400 acres of which 280 acres are planted.  It is no surprise that John Anthony (Truchard) would also continue in this family business.

Product Description

"John Anthony Vineyards was destine to become a reality. From early on in his life, John Anthony Truchard walked vineyard rows, brushed dirt from his knees, and picked grape skins from his fingernails. He was meant to create handcrafted wines while focusing on growing the best fruit possible. He knew he wanted to do it differently. Gone were the days of purchasing a forty acre estate, building a winery, and planting vines. He instead would lease select land, evaluate soils and microclimates, and plant only what would strive in the choice locations.
Today John and Michele Truchard own and operate this successful brand. They feature small vineyard sites from the Oak Knoll District, Carneros and Coombsville regions, and showcase their wines in the downtown Napa tasting lounge. They manage a small team of dedicated team members and push them to create something special with each and every client interaction. John and Michele have redefined the traditional Napa Valley experience with the introduction of custom vineyard tours, late night tastings, and an incredible line up of events." - Winery Notes

John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Tasting Notes

The 2013 John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc is sourced only from vineyards I planted and farm here in the Napa Valley.  Fermented primarily in stainless steel and likely one of the last Sauvignon Blancs harvested in the Napa Valley the wine exhibits the classic ripe melon and tropical flavors you have come to love.
