From Boones Farm Strawberry Hill to Pahlmeyer, E. & J. Gallo wines have been part of the fabric of many lives—from that first sip at a family holiday gathering to Tuesday night patio wines with friends. No matter the occasion, the steadfast winery’s goals shine through in their purpose statement: We serve enjoyment in moments that matter.
The family-owned privately held company is proud of the long-standing tradition of crafting quality wines, dating back to 1933 when brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo, sons of Italian immigrants, founded the Modesto, California winery.
Despite the high volume (the company sells over 75 million cases of wine in 100 countries each year), the original focus and care of the founders is evident in every step of the process, from growing to winemaking, making this well-known winery a prominent leader in the industry.
Collaboration is another important tenet for the family—a 2020 partnership led to exclusive distribution and sales support for Maison No. 9, a French rosé developed in part by popular recording artist Post Malone.
The Gallo brothers’ commitment to sustainable practices was de rigueur for the innovative pair long before it became vogue. Boasting 2,500 acres of vines in Sonoma, the company ensures critical coastal wildlife habitats are preserved through its unique “50/50 Give Back” plan.
In keeping with green practices today, the beautiful building that houses its headquarters, completed in 2016, achieved LEED® Gold status by the U.S. Green Building Council. Further, since 2015, the company’s commitment to efficient energy use has resulted in a savings of more than 11 million kilowatt hours.
With a vast library of labels, including Apothic, Barefoot, Clarendon Hills, and La Marca Prosecco, there’s a varietal, blend, or bubbly to fit any occasion, taste, or budget. As the official wine sponsor of the NFL, E. & J. Gallo is also showing ardent tailgaters that wine is affordable, accessible, and eminently quaffable.
E. & J. Gallo wines are easily found in many retailers, bars, and restaurants throughout the state of Nebraska, so treat yourself and pick up a bottle or two today.
