By January 30, 2014Top News, New Products

Pioneering American winemakers Ernest and Julio Gallo introduced a wine called Hearty Burgundy fifty years ago. GALLO FAMILY VINEYARDS HEARTY BURGUNDY WINEHearty Burgundy was the favorite wine of the Winery’s founders Ernest and Julio Gallo, who created it as an “ode to the wines they enjoyed in Italy.” To celebrate the golden anniversary of Hearty Burgundy, Gallo Family Vineyards has produced a limited edition bottle paying homage to the original flavor profile that “first brought Americans into wine” in the 1960s and 1970s. Hearty Burgundy has been credited with introducing Americans to wine and “for putting American wines on the map during an era when spirits dominated consumption.” Hearty Burgundy graced the cover of TIME in 1972 as part of an article about the booming California wine industry.
