Wine baron Julio Gallo, who along with his brother Ernest founded what is now the largest winery in the world, was killed Sunday when his Jeep plunged off a remote, hilltop road on his son's ranch in San Joaquin County. He was 83. Julio Gallo--whose personal fortune was believed to exceed $300 million--was the winemaker half of the lucrative sibling partnership who parlayed a small family business into a company that sells one of every four bottles of wine in the United States.

I am writing to commend you on the excellent article describing how the third generation of the Gallo family is taking their leadership role within the historic context of the Ernest and Julio Gallo winemaking legacy ("Not Your Grandfather's Gallo," by Barry Stavro, March 2). It was my privilege to know all of the Gallo families when I served as Bishop of Stockton from 1980 to 1985, and you have captured well the vision and spirit of these wonderful families and their commitment to provide excellent wines.

Julio Gallo, who with his brother Ernest revolutionized and popularized wine in the United States, was remembered Friday for his love of the land and the grapes it grows. Hundreds of mourners, many of them employees of E&J Gallo Winery, filed past his casket to pay last respects to Gallo, 83, who was killed when his Jeep overturned Sunday. There are to be no eulogies at Gallo's funeral Mass on Saturday.

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.

The sudden death of 82-year-old Julio Gallo in an auto accident will not radically change the landscape at the world's largest winery, which will continue to be dominated by his iron-fisted older brother, Ernest, according to followers of the E&J Gallo Winery. But if history is any guide, the passing of Julio Gallo hastens the prospect of management turmoil as the children of the two brothers--who already reportedly have their differences--prepare to step into the shoes set out for them.

One foggy morning in May, 1986, wine barons Ernest and Julio Gallo seated themselves side by side in the conference room of the Gallo Winery in Modesto, California. On the other side of the table sat their younger brother, Joseph Jr.--the unknown Gallo--a grape grower, rancher and dairyman who had started his own cheese company in 1983.

Massive earth movers scrape at the reddish soil. Enormous trucks shift tons of dirt. Mountains are being moved here. Nearby, huge plastic sheets blanket hundreds of acres of newly fumigated earth. It may look as if this northern Sonoma County landscape is being prepared for battle, but for the E. and J. Gallo Winery of Modesto, this little project is merely the beginning of a frontal assault on the premium wine market.
