E&J Gallo Acquires Hahn Family Wines

The acquisition complements Gallo's existing Central Coast offerings, including the Smith & Hook, Hahn, and Hahn SLH brands. Terms weren't disclosed. The transaction excludes the Hahn family's vineyard assets.

"For over forty years, the Hahn family and their incredible team have produced expressive terroir-driven, quality wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco, Paso Robles and throughout the Central Coast. We are honored to welcome their brands into our portfolio," said Steve Carlotti, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Brands at Gallo. "This acquisition reinforces Gallo's strategy for continued growth while supporting our goal of delivering superior quality at great value to our consumers across all usage occasions."

Thomas Duhameau, president of Hahn Family Wines, said both firms share similar family values and are deeply committed to creating a sustainable future.

The Hahn Family Wines portfolio includes Smith & Hook, which has long stood for spirited, layered, and luscious Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux red blends from Paso Robles and the Central Coast. It also includes Hahn wines which are rooted in the terroir of Monterey County and offer a fresh, approachable style in an array of varietals, and the Hahn SLH wines which showcase the character of the Santa Lucia Highlands.

Zepponi & Company served as the exclusive financial advisor to Hahn Family Wines.
