For her venture into the Sonoma Coast, Gina sourcednearly 100% of these Chardonnay grapes from the famed Two Rock Vineyard. Named for two nearby rocks the Miwuk and Pomo tribes passed through for good luck on trips inland, Two Rock Vineyard has a unique climate with warm winters and cooler summers. The Petaluma Wind Gap ushers cool wind and fog into the vineyard, extending the growing season and giving the grapes extra time on the vine to develop complex flavors of lime, green apple and tropical fruit.
Since brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo began to turn their dream into reality over 75 years ago, the roots of the Gallo family tree have extended deep into the Winery. Today their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren work in the Winery, carrying on the family tradition and values – a strong work ethic, a drive for perfection and a focus on quality.
The Gallo family still believes family ownership is the most effective way for the Winery to continue as a world leader in the wine industry.
Today, E. & J. Gallo Winery is the world’s largest family-owned winery and the largest exporter of California wine.
