EJG_HearBurg_1.5_091713

Wine Snobs may laugh at the concept today, yet when Ernest and Julio Gallo first introduced a wine called ‘Hearty Burgundy’ fifty years ago, it paved the way for America to move from cocktail drinkers to wine drinkers.

To celebrate this golden anniversary of Hearty Burgundy, Gallo Family Vineyards produced a limited edition bottle to pay homage to the original flavor profile that brought Americans into wine in the 1960s and 1970s.

The celebratory party payed homage to the era, with a 1960s throwback Apres Ski theme and food of the era.
