Boycott of E&J Gallo

We are pledging to boycott all E&J Gallo brands.

Why? Gallo is proposing to build a massive processing and distribution plant in South Carolina.

Gallo is pressuring the South Carolina assembly to change the state ABL laws in their favor.

The big issue is that current prevents licensed wineries from having more than one tasting room. The “Gallo” bill introduced in the South Carolina State Legislator provides for allowing E&J Gallo to open up three satellite tasting rooms.

The proposed bill reads, a winery producing or bottling at least thirty million gallons of wine and alcoholic beverages per calendar year in this State may operate three tasting-room premises;

In other words, Gallo is free to compete with the existing small craft family wineries licensed across the state.

Not only that, the is changed to allow for Gallo to serve in their tasting rooms, any wine brand under it’s corporate ownership, even if not produced in South Carolina.

An egregious example of big corporation sticking it to small business!

Following is the exhaustive list of brands owned by E&J Gallo! It’s alphabetical for your convenience!
