    E &J Gallo Winery said it has reached an agreement with the Rombauer family to purchase Rombauer Vineyards, producer of critically acclaimed wines from Napa Valley, Sonoma County, the Sierra Foothills, and the Santa Lucia Highlands in in California, US.

    Founded in 1980 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer, Rombauer Vineyards is known for its high-quality wines, exceptional vineyard sites, and commitment to sustainability, as well as family-style hospitality.

    The acquisition includes the Rombauer Vineyards brand, three winery and production facilities, two tasting rooms with breathtaking vineyard views, along with over 700 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards in Carneros, Atlas Peak, St. Helena, Calistoga, Sonoma Valley, and the Sierra Foothills.

    “On behalf of the Rombauer family, we are thrilled that we were able to find a dedicated, multi-generational family who share in our vision and passion of providing exceptional wines with a long-term focus on quality and reinforcing community. Gallo places great importance in stewardship of the land, the Rombauer brand, and their employees,” said K.R. Rombauer, owner, and son of Rombauer founders, Koerner and Joan Rombauer.

    Joseph C. Gallo, vice president and general manager of Gallo’s Luxury Wine Group, added: “The Rombauer brand and family have built a reputation around quality and integrity. It’s an iconic brand rooted in distinctive and respected wines.

    “We are excited to work on this next chapter alongside the very talented Rombauer Leadership and Winemaking team. Their values, along with their long-term focus, align seamlessly with our culture. Our shared goal is to honor and build on this legacy.”

    E &J Gallo, whose wine brands in the UK include Apothic, Dark Horse and Barefoot, is one of the world’s largest family-owned wineries and the largest exporters of California wine.
