Anthony Truchard II, Truchard Vineyards

Special Guest Speaker

Anthony grew up running between vines and climbing on tractors. As early as the age of 12, he began working among the vines by helping his father with virtually every element of the vineyard—learning which rootstock to select, planting vines, and irrigation to name a few.  In the winery, he racked barrels, punched down wine, and learned the art of blending. Through these hands-on experiences, Anthony learned to appreciate every aspect of winemaking and honed his palate.

His studies took him to Southern California, where he graduated with degrees in Philosophy and Biology from the University of California Santa Barbara. As a university student, he further developed his wine knowledge by working and managing local boutique wine shops and restaurants. These experiences—the interactions with wine lovers in different settings—were his initial lessons in sales and marketing. They helped him gain an ability to appreciate and discern what a customer seeks when selecting a wine, either off a shelf or from a wine list.
Today, alongside his parents, Anthony works incessantly and passionately to maintain the integrity of his family’s wines and loves sharing them with the world.

2021 Live Auction Lots

Every year, the live auction portion of Soirée du Vin features trips, dinners, and unique experiences, as well as wine auction lots carefully selected by the event's Steering Committee.

Your Support Matters

Soirée du Vin aims to maintain the status of Silicon Valley’s premier wine auction. To accomplish this, we look for community partners who not only appreciate gourmet food and fine wines, but also seek to support the mission of an educational institution like the Silicon Valley International School (INTL).

INTL educates children through a rigorous, collaborative, bilingual curriculum that promotes active engagement and responsible international consciousness.

Soirée du Vin is a benefit for INTL's Charlotte de Géry Endowment Fund. By supporting Soirée du Vin, you are helping to ensure that INTL is able to continue its mission indefinitely. Raise a glass at Soirée du Vin, and support the children of the Silicon Valley International School.
