Touching Lives

This year marks the eleventh anniversary of J. Lohr’s heartfelt partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. The Touching Lives initiative began when the Lohr family designated the J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon a commemorative release in honor of founder Jerry Lohr’s late wife. Carol Lohr passed away in 2008 due to complications from breast cancer.

Since the program’s inception, sales from J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard releases have supported early breast cancer detection, access to mammograms, patient navigation systems, and the delivery of HOPE Kits (a gift box of comforting items) to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. These programs continue to build on a partnership that has funded over 7,800 mammograms for women who otherwise would not be able to afford them.

#1 Enjoy a bottle from Carol's Vineyard

Today, $3 from every purchase of J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, whether at your local restaurant, wine shop, online or at our Wine Centers, is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The limited Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our 35-acre property in Napa Valley’s St. Helena appellation.

Steve Peck, Director of Winemaking, declares, “The 2014 vintage expresses this classic valley floor site in an approachable way. Flavors of savory fruit elements are wrapped in a barrel signature of hazelnut and cocoa powder. Firm and angular in structure with red and blue fruits on the finish.”

Fans of Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon can take heart that their purchase aids in providing comfort, support, and needed services for women at every step of the arduous breast cancer journey.
