Fires Leave 2020 Vintage in the Balance

September 18, 2020

A spokesperson for Gallo said the company is "optimistic". "While most of our vineyards were not directly impacted, some locations experienced significant smoke exposure based on their close proximity to the fires and the prevailing winds. As a result we will have portions of vineyards which will not be harvested in 2020, and in some cases we may not bottle a 2020 vintage for select single-vineyard wines."
