Founded by brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo in 1933 in Modesto, California, E&J Gallo Winery is the world’s largest family-owned winery. Its portfolio is comprised of more than 100 brands, including Apothic, La Marca, Columbia Winery, Ecco Domani, Whitehaven, J Vineyards & Winery, Louis M. Martini, MacMurray Estate Vineyards and Orin Swift.

On its partnership with the institute, chief marketing officer Stephanie Gallo said: “E&J Gallo Winery has three Masters of Wine in integral roles within our organisation – Edouard Baijot MW, Nicholas Paris MW and Nigel Sneyd MW. We applaud the IMW’s commitment to professional excellence. Their dedication to promoting education in the wine industry is exemplary.”

The IMW now has 28 supporters from around the world, who work jointly with the IMW to promote its mission of “excellence, interaction and learning” across all sectors of the global wine community.

Adrian Garforth MW, chairman of the IMW, added: “At a time when our student base has never had such a global dimension and with more students in the USA than any other market, we are delighted to have E&J Gallo Winery as a Major Supporter of the IMW.

“As a family business, Gallo has a unique understanding of the wine world and has shared their insights with our students and Members alike, through a variety of seminars and more recently as part of the successful MW trip to California.

“With an increasing focus on the premium sector, Gallo’s portfolio breadth and commitment to quality demonstrate the same values that underpin the activities of the IMW.”
