Another Acquisition For E. & J. Gallo Winery

E. & J. Gallo Winery (Gallo) has purchased the Hahn Family Wines portfolio, complementing Gallo’s existing Central Coast offerings. The strategic investment includes the Smith & Hook, Hahn, and Hahn SLH brands.

“For over forty years, the Hahn family and their incredible team have produced expressive terroir-driven, quality wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco, Paso Robles and throughout the Central Coast. We are honoured to welcome their brands into our portfolio,” said Steve Carlotti, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Brands at Gallo.

“This acquisition reinforces Gallo’s strategy for continued growth while supporting our goal of delivering superior quality at great value to our consumers across all usage occasions.”

“I am pleased to transition our Hahn Family Wines portfolio to the E. & J. Gallo Winery. Not only do we share similar family values, but both organizations are deeply committed to creating a sustainable future,” said Thomas Duhameau, President of Hahn Family Wines.

“I am confident the Hahn family’s Central Coast wine legacy is in the best hands with the Gallo family.”

The Hahn Family Wines portfolio includes Smith & Hook, which has long stood for spirited, layered, and luscious Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux red blends from Paso Robles and the Central Coast. It also includes Hahn wines which are rooted in the terroir of Monterey County and offer a fresh, approachable style in an array of varietals, and the Hahn SLH wines which showcase the character of the Santa Lucia Highlands.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The transaction excludes the Hahn family’s vineyard assets. Zepponi & Company served as the exclusive financial advisor to Hahn Family Wines.
