  • Conclusion

    Not much complexity but for the 6 euro your paying i am not complaining. I would buy this Gallo again and it goes great with red meet and some cheese. Prohibition had just ended. Ernest and Julio Gallo were traveling the country selling grapes from their family vineyard. But what they really wanted to do was start a winery. So they devoured books on winemaking in the local Modesto library and taught themselves the craft. Then they borrowed from Ernest’s mother-in-law, because that’s what families do. They help make dreams become a reality. And Ernest and Julio’s dream happened with the founding of the E. & J. Gallo Winery in 1933.
