Environmental Sustainability


As a family-owned winery, it is a priority to us that future generations can experience the natural resources we enjoy today. In fact, our commitment to the environment began in the 1930s when co-founders Ernest and Julio Gallo introduced an innovative approach to land conservation in the North Coast known as the “50/50 Give Back” plan. For every acre of land planted in vineyard, one acre of property was set aside for wildlife habitat — a practice that continues today in the North Coast. We also proudly support the American Farmland Trust in their efforts to help protect our nation’s farm and ranch land, promote environmentally sound farming practices, and improve the economic viability of agriculture.

Dry Creek Building

The Dry Creek Building brings together key business partners in a common location and is designed to help drive collaboration and innovation. E. & J. Gallo Winery believes in the importance of preserving and enhancing the land for future generations and wanted the Dry Creek Building to be classic, timeless, and of the earth. The Dry Creek Building was completed in 2016, and achieved LEED® Gold status by the U.S. Green Building Council.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certifications

Gallo was the first winery in the United States to receive the ISO 14001 certification. Created to assist companies throughout the world to reduce their impacts on the environment, our winemaking facilities and related businesses have been certified to be in conformance with these rigorous standards. These standards are incorporated in an environmental management system (EMS) developed by Gallo, which guides all processes at our wineries and spirits facilities throughout California and Washington. The EMS translates Gallo environmental policy into action at every staff level and encourages similar efforts with our suppliers and trading partners.

Energy / Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Our commitment to energy efficiency has resulted in significant savings in energy use. Since 2015, we have saved more than 11 million kilowatt hours in electricity.

Responsibility for the stewardship of our planet is a growing challenge — it's one we work hard to champion.

Water Stewardship

At Gallo, water stewardship is critical to our long-term business growth and has always been a top priority for our company.
