John Anthony is a small production winery owned an operated by Michele & John Anthony Truchard. In the late 1800's Jean Marie Truchard, the great grandfather of John Anthony Truchard, arrived in the US from France and purchased, with gold bullion, 500 acres in Texas with the idea of making wine to serve the local community of Cat Springs. The vineyards were planted and the winery was built but as the grapes began to ripen they rotted on the vine due to the humidity of the region. For his generation and the next the Truchard family lived off the land raising cattle and farming. Tony Truchard, the grandson of Jean Marie and the father of John Anthony, picked up where Jean Marie left off and through a twist of fate purchased property in Napa California in the early 1970's. John Anthony was raised in family tradition of farming and worked hand in hand with his father learning the wine business. It was during this time he learned to enjoy the hard work, dedication, and focus required to produce world class grapes that yield world class wines.
In 1997 John Anthony Truchard began leasing and managing vineyard property with the goal of one day producing a small quantity of high end wines to share with friends and family. The idea was simple - pick the ideal climate and locations for the fruit, choose the best vine stock available, care and tend to each vine's needs, work with the best winemaker available, and share the end result with those who will most appreciate it. Fortunately his wife Michele shared his passion and together in 2003 they crushed what would become their first vintage of Cabernet and Syrah.
The fruit that goes into the wines is sourced only from vineyards leased or managed by John Anthony Truchard. This level of viticultural control provides the foundation for the wines produced.
