E & J Gallo Winery is a winery and distributor headquartered in Modesto, California. By 1993, E. & J. Gallo was the country's largest winery, with a 25% share of the American wine market.
In 1986, the Gallo brothers sued their younger brother Joseph for selling cheese branded with the Joseph Gallo Farms name. Joseph Gallo lost two suits and was forced to change the name of his business to Joseph Farms - brotherly love!
E&J Brandy is made from French Colombard, Grenache, Barbera, Pinot Grigio and Muscat grapes. Using a process that distills their dry wine for 45 days, ensuring the aromas and complex flavours of each grape they use remains within each sip. The wine is then transferred into American Oak barrels to allow for ageing.
