John Anthony Vineyards Gives Back in Celebration of 20th Anniversary
Each year at John Anthony Vineyards, we renew and celebrate our fundraising efforts in support of philanthropic events that positively impact the community and beyond. We proudly announce the upcoming partnerships in the continued celebration of John Anthony Vineyard’s 20th anniversary.
John Anthony Vineyards has been an active supporter of the V Foundation for Cancer Research for over 10 years. We are honored to be a part of the 25th year of the V Foundation’s Wine Celebration weekend in the heart of Napa Valley on August 3-6, 2023.
John Anthony will bring a taste of the 20th Anniversary Dinner Series to the Rock the V party and concert on August 4, 2023, with special pourings and gourmet pairings including Regiis Ova caviar and Hog Island oysters. Paired alongside exclusive John Anthony wines like La Dame Michele Blanc de Mélange, Sauvignon Blanc from Los Carneros, Reserve Chardonnay, Syrah from Los Carneros, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. All proceeds from this premier wine country fundraiser will benefit the V Foundation for Cancer Research, a non-profit organization founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach, Jim Valvano, to support cutting-edge cancer research with one collective goal–Victory Over Cancer.
“John and Michele have been long-time supporters of the V Foundation, both at the Wine Celebration and our other events held across the country,” said Jane Baer, Managing Director of V Foundation Wine Celebration. “In our milestone 30th year as a foundation and 25th anniversary of the Wine Celebration, we are grateful for their advocacy and generosity as we work to create a world where no one will fear the word cancer again.”
John Anthony Vineyards will also support as the Presenting Partner of Harvest STOMP, a beloved fundraising event supporting Napa Valley Grapegrowers and the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation, taking place on August 26, 2023. Throughout the event, John Anthony will be pouring exclusive John Anthony wines like La Dame Michele Blanc de Mélange, Sauvignon Blanc from Los Carneros, Reserve Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville.
As STOMP’s Presenting Partner, John Anthony Vineyards will dedicate funds, resources, and wines to the event which raises millions of dollars each year to provide education that supports the preservation of ag land and addresses wildfire, water, soil and climate concerns, as well as support and promote Napa Valley’s vineyard workers with education and professional development, including adult literacy, management training, and mentorship programs to foster the next generations of industry leaders.
“We’re thrilled to have John Anthony Vineyards celebrate their 20th Anniversary at Harvest STOMP as Presenting Partner,” said Sonya DeLuca, Interim Executive Director at Napa Valley Grapegrowers. “As grape growers, vintners, and vineyard managers, John Anthony Family of Wines understands the importance of supporting farmworkers and their families, and being an active part of the Napa Valley community.”
In addition to sponsoring these philanthropic-focused fundraisers, John Anthony Vineyards will continue hosting a series of intimate dinners to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
“Giving back to our community has always gone hand in hand with growing the John Anthony Family of Wines portfolio here in Napa Valley,” said John Anthony Truchard, Founder and CEO of John Anthony Family of Wines. “It’s an honor to expand our partnerships with both the V Foundation Wine Celebration and Harvest STOMP fundraising events whose missions mean so much to Michele and me personally. We hope to only increase our efforts in supporting these incredible organizations for many more years to come.”
