By December 25, 2019Top News

E. & J. Gallo Winery announced in November 2019 that it purchased Pahlmeyer Winery, which includes Pahlmeyer and Jayson by Pahlmeyer, two Napa Valley luxury brands known for producing iconic Bordeaux-style wines. Recognized by critics around the world, Pahlmeyer wines have received notable acclaim since the 1980s, garnering numerous 90-plus-point scores and two 100-point scores from the last three vintages of Pahlmeyer’s limited releases. “I am thrilled to transition ownership of Pahlmeyer Winery to the Gallo Family,” said Founder Jayson Pahlmeyer. “The two companies share similar principles and, with Gallo’s long-standing commitment to quality, I am confident they will take Pahlmeyer to even greater heights in the future.” As part of the agreement, Gallo will lease Waters Ranch, a vineyard in Atlas Peak, and will continue to operate the Jayson tasting room that opened in The Village at Vista Collina Resort in August 2018.
