E&J Gallo Wines Tasting: La Marca and Louis Martini
December 29, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Stories have it that what was once a modest winery became a global empire known as E&J Gallo Wines.
Ernest and Julio Gallo lived long enough to see what their company E&J Gallo Wines has become. From selling cases of their eponymously named wines to some of the most recognizable names in the wine industry. It’s difficult to say that their wines aren’t for you because their reach is extensive. From Australia to New Zealand to Italy and back to the states the wines are only bound by the imagination. Looking for something light and exciting? They have it. How about a rich red with layers of flavor? Better yet, a highly acclaimed Italian winery? Three of them if not more.
E&J Gallo wanted to be more than just another large wine company, they wanted to be standard bearers. Having wine wasn’t enough, they wanted the best wines. Sure, Livingston may not have been featured at your last wine dinner. But the 2013 Louis Martini Lot 1 might one day. However, none of this matters if you don’t like the wine which is why we will be sampling a couple.
La Marca a.k.a the ‘Tiffany Blue’ Prosecco is making waves in the Prosecco market. Its catchy label and easy-drinking bubbles make it an easy choice to make.
Louis Martini might as well be synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon-focused winery in California that doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
