Winery giants Ernest and Julio Gallo today won the exclusive right to use of their family name, thwarting their younger brother, who had used his name on a brand of cheese. U.S. District Judge Robert E. Coyle ruled that Joseph Gallo's use of his full name on cheese misleads consumers who think the brand is connected with the E & J Gallo Winery. Joseph Gallo has no direct connection with the Modesto-based Gallo Winery, the world's largest, even though he was raised by his older brothers and sells them grapes from his vineyards a few miles south in the San Joaquin Valley in Merced County.

"We have no plans to make any changes," Daniel J. Solomon, a spokesman for Modesto-based Gallo, said Monday. "We'll continue with Bartles and Jaymes."

E & J Gallo Winery of Modesto made good on its promise to a local residents group Friday to temporarily stop selling certain fortified wines, often the drink of choice in this Skid Row section of the city. The ban is intended to see if it will ease the neighborhood's evident alcohol-related social problems.
