The deal includes the Orin Swift Cellars brand, related inventory, and control of the tasting room in St Helena. Financial details were not disclosed. 

"This purchase supports the company's strategy for continued growth in the luxury wine segment," said Roger Nabedian, SVP & GM of Gallo's Premium Wine Division. "We are excited to work with Dave Phinney who has a long history of creating memorable and bold brands."

Nabedian said Phinney will continue to provide creative and winemaking direction for the brand.  

The Orin Swift purchase follows a raft of acquisitions in the area. In July, Gallo acquired the Californian Asti winery from Treasury Wine Estates. A month later, the company bought the Talbott Vineyards in California's Santa Lucia Highlands. Then in December, Gallo acquired The Ranch Winery, also in St Helena.
