E&J Gallo is to buy Courtside Cellars' San Miguel winery to boost its growth in California's Central Coast.
The deal, which is expected to close next week, includes 34 acres of land and a winery able to crush 60,000 tonnes of grapes a year, Gallo said on Friday (10 August). The purchase price has not been disclosed.
Earlier this year, Gallo purchased 300 acres of vineyards in Monterey County and last year bought Edna Valley Vineyard from Diageo.
