Both Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry and Gemstone Vineyard have designed a beautiful, gem-covered wine bottle to be auctioned off at the V Foundation Wine Celebration "Momentum 2.0" in August of 2020.

“The work of the V Foundation has always been deeply personal to me and to the Silver family since some of our own loved ones have succumbed to cancer in recent years. That is why our company has made a long-term commitment to supporting the V Foundation and why I am so proud to serve as a Board member alongside Amy Dornbusch. The partnership with Gemstone Vineyard was the natural result of our mutual desire to creatively channel our individual resources and expertise for this unique collaboration. We are excited that auction proceeds from this ruby Jeroboam bottle will help fund even more cancer research,” said Jared Silver, President of Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry.



“This is an incredibly special collaboration and important to us for many reasons. I have been on the board of the V Foundation Wine Celebration for 7 years and my family has supported this phenomenal organization for over 20. Jared and Stephen Silver have become great friends of ours through this community and through our positions on the board. This collaborative project is a testament to our friendship and our shared desire to find a cure for cancer. Named after our daughter, the Ruby Barrel Selection is the most special Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate; a wine that is crafted by tasting through every single one of our barrels and selecting the 4 most distinctive of the vintage. There is as much thought and deliberate attention to quality and detail put into our wines as the Silvers dedicate to crafting their exquisite pieces. We are thrilled to offer this “gem” as it is such a meaningful alignment of the values behind Gemstone, the Stephen Silver brand, and the winning bidder. It is my sincere belief that we will find a cure for cancer long before this Jeroboam reaches its aging potential. I hope the enjoyment of our 2019 Ruby Cabernet serves as the ultimate celebration for finding a cure, and the beautiful Stephen Silver adornment its lasting legacy,” said Amy Dornbusch, Proprietor, Gemstone Vineyard.
