If Ernest and Julio Gallo thought a lawsuit would convince their brother Joseph to amicably leave the family name to their wines and remove it from his cheeses, they were wrong. Joseph Gallo's attorney, John Whiting, accused the two brothers Thursday of waging "a vendetta" against his client and "anyone who tries to use the family name." Whiting predicted a bitter legal battle over use of the family name and promised to file a countersuit against E&J Winery within 20 days.

Secrecy has always surrounded the E. and J. Gallo Winery operations. But a few intimate Gallo family details have been revealed via court records over the last two years. Ernest and Julio Gallo sued their younger brother, Joseph Gallo Jr., when he tried to market his own line of cheese with the Gallo name. "I have only got one name," Joseph Gallo told the press at the time. "I don't know how I'm supposed to look for another one." It was a messy legal battle.

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.

On June 21, 1933, the Fresno Bee's front page was dominated by a story of domestic violence. The bodies of a farmer and his wife had been discovered that morning outside town. Detectives surmised that the man, despondent over "ill health," had approached his wife as she was feeding the pigs and shot her dead. He then returned to the farmhouse, positioned himself before a mirror and took his own life. The farmer was identified as Joseph Gallo.
