A coconut to those who said Gallo.
Jamie Goode’s post today has some amazing statistics and photo’s
and following the link to the company’ website and ‘Our Portfolio’ shows 72 brands. Now, not all of them are owned by the company, some non-US names are wineries they represent in the US, but the vast majority are brands Gallo make and own.
If you stand looking at a supermarket’s wine shelves impressed by the large and varied range that outlet has for you, it’s sobering to see that their buyer needed to deal with one rep to get so many different brand names.
Jamie’s post says that Gallo’s factory also make the bottles they use. I have previously read they also have a cardboard factory to make cases for the wine.
