David Trone
Total Wine & More

David Trone is an American success. Born in Cheverly, Maryland, David spent his childhood feeding hogs and cleaning chicken pens on a struggling family farm, and showing animals at local fairs as a member of the 4H.  He went to graduate school on student loans and opened his first store during his second semester.  From one store, Total Wine & More has become the largest independent wine retailer in the United States, with 6,000 team members in 172 stores across 22 states and $2.7 billion in annual revenue.  Their national headquarters and two stores are here in Maryland.

David believes that with success comes an obligation to pay it forward. Total Wine & More leads their industry in wages and benefits for workers, and were among the first to offer partner benefits and to ban the box on employment applications.  Total Wine has contributed over $50 million to charities, and David and June are incredibly generous philanthropists as well.  David Trone is a major supporter of progressive causes in Maryland and nationwide.

David and June live in Potomac and have four adult children.
