In the late 1800’s Jean Marie Truchard arrived in the US from France and with gold bullion, purchased 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. After generations of farming and raising cattle the family purchased property in Napa in the early 1970’s. John Anthony Truchard was raised in his family’s 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 the early 1970’s Silver Oak Cellars began with a simple philosophy to focus production on one varietal- Cabernet Sauvignon. This philosophy also encompassed the idea that Cabernet Sauvignon should be fully developed with a velvety soft texture on the day it is released for sale, leading to an extensive aging program where the wine is aged 24 to 30 months in American oak barrels, then cellared another 18 months in the bottle. Their Cabernets are allowed to fully develop a vivid bouquet and softness that comes from lengthy bottle age.

Just three years later, the winery’s 1976 Chardonnay earned “Best Chardonnay in the World” honors at the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics in Paris.
