History

Gallo combines four generations of winemaking expertise from the world's largest family owned winery to always bring you great¿tasting wine. If you love wine you'll love Gallo, for all your wine moments. When it's time for wine, say Hello to Gallo.
Regional Information
The 2016 growing season saw its 1st wet winter in 4 years. Thanks to the extreme El Niño weather pattern, the grapes received just above normal rainfall for the season. A relatively warm, wet spring contributed to an early budbreak and quick early growth from the vines. The overall growing season saw many extended heat spikes. These spikes slowed the maturity of the reds giving them more hang time, which resulted in outstanding fruit flavour development and increased colour.
Current Vintage
2012
Vinification Details
The grapes for Gallo Family Vineyards Merlot were harvested at optimum ripeness, which allowed for easy extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins. The winemaker selected aromatic yeast strains and employed a warm fermentation process, which has resulted in a wine with more flavour and fruitier aromatics.

Great bottle of red

I love this smooth wine, it never disappoints and is better than wine costing much more, I have converted a few non red drinkers with this little beauty.

Sat on the patio on this hot July night drinking it and watching the world go by I have already put two bottles on my next Morrisons delivery. Thank you Morrisons for introducing me to a new wine free of charge. Love Morrison's X
