E. & J. Gallo Winery

  1. 1. Since brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo began to turn their dream into reality over 80 years ago, the roots of the Gallo family tree have extended deep into the Winery. Today their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren work in the Winery, carrying on the family tradition and values – a strong work ethic, a drive for perfection and a focus on quality. The Gallo family still believes family ownership is the most effective way for the Winery to continue as a world leader in the wine industry. Today, E. & J. Gallo Winery is the world's largest family-owned winery and the largest exporter of California wine.

People of different cultures and customs include wine in celebrations, ceremonies and social events big and small.

  3. 3. Environmental Stewardship As a family-owned winery, it is important to us that future generations can enjoy the natural resources we take pleasure in today. Our commitment to the environment started in the 1930s with co-founders Ernest and Julio Gallo. Julio Gallo introduced an innovative approach to land conservation known as the “50/50 Give Back” plan in Sonoma County. For every acre of land planted in vineyard, Julio set aside one acre of property for wildlife habitat. This is a practice we continue today. E. & J. Gallo Winery took the lead in drafting the Code of Sustainable Wine Growing Practices as part of a collaborative effort with the Wine Institute and the California Association of Winegrape Growers. We were also the first winery in the U.S. to receive the International Organization of Standards ISO 14001 certification for our implementation of an environmental management system to enhance our efforts to protect the environment. We proudly support American Farmland Trust in their efforts to help protect our nation’s farm and ranch land, promote environmentally sound farming practices and improve the economic viability of agriculture.

  5. 5. Training and Development If there’s one thing that all Gallo employees have in common – and that we consider to be a key ingredient to our success – it’s the drive to keep getting better at what we do. In our entrepreneurial, performance-driven environment, you can expect to find the resources, and support to realize your full potential. You’ll find we count our people—and their continual growth-- among our most important assets. It’s why we encourage mentorship, peer-to-peer training and provide opportunities to gain on-the-job experience—even across functional areas.

So we keep a continuous dialog open, setting performance expectations, monitoring your progress, and assessing your results. It may sound counter-intuitive, but your manager’s or supervisor’s goal is to help you grow beyond your team. Because that’s what helps our entire organization to grow.

That’s why, at Gallo, you’ll find a variety of programs to help you live healthier…convenience perks that help you use your time wisely…and social activities that can help you and your family have more fun! Some of our most popular programs in- clude:  Family-friendly policies like our Enhanced Maternity/ Paternity Leave We strive to continually enhance policies that will offer parents more flexibility so they can meet the needs of their growing families.  Meeting-Free Days to help you maximize your time Heavy meeting schedules often fill daytime schedules and require long work hours to catch up.

  7. 7. Recognition and Rewards Recognizing each other’s contributions is an important part of our culture at Gallo. For some people, recognition can be as simple as a pat on the back or a team celebration that assures them of a job well done. For others, it’s being invited to work on a special project. Our more formal program, All the Best, is designed to rec- ognize employees who go above and beyond, and whose contribution has a meaningful impact on our work, and on our business. All The Best awards prizes and financial incentives at five different levels to reflect the different type and level of contribution being recognized, from recognizing Individual achievement (the Varietal Award) to recognizing contributions that have a significant impact on the company at large (the Estate Award). The winners receive either gifts or financial incentives, depending on the level of award; Estate Award recipients may be award- ed up to $1,000.
