Ernest & Julio Gallo

An American Vintage

Without any knowledge of the winery business, Ernest and Julio Gallo built one of the largest family-owned wineries in the world. Ernest had a talent for business and Julio specialized in farming and making wine. For years, the brothers grew and sold grapes like their Italian ancestors. After prohibition in the United States was lifted, they started a winery in Modesto, Calif. Today, the Gallo family continues to operate the business, carrying on Ernest and Julio's passion for wine-making.
