“J Vineyards & Winery is well known for their award-winning sparkling wines and we look forward to carrying on the winery’s reputation of making elegant, luxurious wines.”

“I am proud to announce today that I have found the perfect fit to take this beautiful company to even greater heights. E&J Gallo is also privately owned and shares similar core values as both companies are dedicated to a balance of quality, community, and financial sustainability. I look forward to my new chapter of building a mentorship platform as I honour and salute the outstanding new stewards of J Vineyards & Winery.”
