50th Anniversary of Gallo Family Vineyards’ Hearty Burgundy Wine

Gallo Family Vineyards has been family-owned and operated since 1933. Family values are extremely important to the Gallo Family. Every wine they craft is sealed with a Best Taste Promise - certifying the highest quality in each bottle. The Gallo Family has always made wine accessible – easy to find and easy to enjoy. Even today, Gallo Family Vineyards are part of family gatherings across the country and across the world.

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Ernest and Julio Gallo’s HeartyBurgundy, described as “a great tasting American red blend with big, generous flavors and a value proposition that helped put wine on America’s dinner table”. Gallo Family Vineyards has produced a limited edition bottle to commemorate the golden anniversary of this original flavor profile that first got Americans into wine in the 1960s and 1970s. Hearty Burgundy was the favorite wine of the founding brothers, paying homage to Italian wines enjoyed at the dinner table with family and friends. Hearty Burgundy even graced the cover of TIME in 1972 bolstering the boom of the California wine industry. The wine outscored more expensive California and French wines by the TIME Board of Oenologists.
