Growing Up Gallo (VIDEO)

Monique Soltani Interviews Gina Gallo

In 1933, two brothers one Ernest and the other Julio Gallo, turned their dream of winemaking into a reality. Now nearly 80 years later, E. & J. Gallo Winery is still alive and thriving thanks to the commitment of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Gina Gallo is the grand-daughter of Julio Gallo. By following in her grandfather’s footsteps and helping her family legacy live on, she has become one of the most powerful women in wine.

By now, the name Gallo likely rolls off your tongue like a bottle of Bartles and Jaymes, but you might not know the story behind the bottle. Our video series on the Historic Wineries of California continues with E. & J. Gallo Winery, the largest family-owned winery in the world and the largest exporter of California wine.

In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani sits down with wine goddess Gina Gallo, gets to the bottom of her new signature series, and finds out how she is balancing life winemaking and taking care of twin girls.

Gina Gallo’s advice to working Moms

“Breathe and having a glass of wine at five o’clock is perfectly fine!”
