2011 was a successful year for E&J Gallo and saw the launch of Gallo Family Vineyards Summer Red in the UK market.

The red was developed with a fruity palate and a lighter, softer, sweeter taste profile.

Best served chilled, the wine was produced to drive new consumers into the wine category and generate renewed excitement around the vineyard’s portfolio. A Merlot Rosé was launched the same year, the third addition to their rosé portfolio, which also includes White Zinfandel and White Grenache. 2012 is another important year for the company with the launch of a Moscato taking centre stage. Moscato supports the growing demand for approachable wines that are lighter in alcohol and sweeter in style.

Four years after its launch in the UK wine market, Barefoot Wine is also now one of the most successful brands in the winery’s portfolio.

    Offsale wines are always going to be in top 10 because they are cheap.. Where’s the top 10 on trade wines??

    Thanks for sharing. Great inspiration to the wine business. It is tough even to grow a brand to a million case level. Australia and US brands have really made it happen on the Global state. I wont be surprised to see a brand from Argentina in the list in few years. What you can take from here is ‘price, product, package and promotion’ makes it happen if you want to build the brand. We also want to add penetration separately here as lot of credit goes to their importers and distributors.

    they are the top 10 BRANDS?? it is keating! Brands may include several different wines under it, if top Brand, which means all wines under that brand are top? if you say 10 top RED WINES, or 10 top WHITE WINES, or even 10 top Moscato/Shiraz (any particular taste), I would think it is more relavent and believeable.

    @ricky johnston I think Ricky has a good point! I understand this includes both on-trade and off-trade! I think a ranking like this, but done according to value instead of volume could be very interesting, and im sure a french wine would pop into the ranking!
