News Alert: Gallo Acquires Napa Valley’s Pahlmeyer Winery

November 19, 2019

E.&J. Gallo has acquired Napa Valley-based Pahlmeyer Winery for an undisclosed sum. With the deal, Gallo gains the Pahlmeyer and Jayson by Pahlmeyer brands, which are known for Bordeaux-style wines and range in price from $30-$350 at retail.

“Pahlmeyer complements our portfolio nicely, allowing Gallo to continue competing in luxury wine and fueling strategic growth for the company,” said Roger Nabedian, senior vice president and general manager of Gallo’s Premium Wine Division.

Gallo said in a statement that it would continue working with founder Jayson Pahlmeyer and his daughter Cleo as it assimilates the brand into its expanding luxury portfolio, which also includes Louis M. Martini, Orin Swift, William Hill Estate, MacMurray Estate Vineyards, J Vineyards & Winery, and Talbott Vineyards.

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 Napa just over a year ago. Pahlmeyer’s Wayfarer brand and Wayfarer Vineyard are not part of the sale and will continue to be run by Cleo Pahlmeyer.—Daniel Marsteller
