E. & J. Gallo Winery has created the first stand-alone tasting room dedicated solely to luxury California brandies. The California Brandy House is set to open on Nov. 6, 2020 for outdoor tastings at First Street Napa, a collection of artisan retail and dining in downtown Napa.
The California Brandy House will showcase Gallo’s two leading brandy portfolios, Germain-Robin and Argonaut. Guests will discover California brandy through expert guided tasting flights, including limited offerings and single-barrel samples not available anywhere else. Tastings will initially take place by reservation in the California Brandy House outdoor parklet.
Visitors can also purchase from the full Germain-Robin and Argonaut portfolio, including exclusive releases as well as the ability to customize every bottle with laser engraving. Gallo plans to offer additional experiences for guests at the California Brandy House in the future.
The world’s largest family-owned winery, Gallo has more than 7,000 global employees and over 100 unique brands in its portfolio. The Gallo family has been building a library of premium brandy lots during the past four decades, exploring what could be achieved through a diverse selection of barrels, varieties, ages and distillation techniques. The California Brandy House will enable guests to learn more about brandy’s pivotal role in the state’s drinks history.
