On June 8, the NFL and E. & J. Gallo Winery announced a partnership that makes Gallo the official wine sponsor of the league. The multi-year and multi-branded partnership aims to engage NFL fans in a variety of activities and opportunities from opening kickoff through the Super Bowl.

Gallo’s extensive portfolio of wines, including its iconic brand Barefoot, with our fans, clubs and premiere events for memorable NFL experiences.”
Throughout this partnership, Gallo will also introduce its 360-degree programming throughout the customer purchasing process, giving its businesses full exposure to demands and behaviors of customers.
“As an industry leader our role is to welcome new consumers to the wine category in unique and relevant ways. This partnership will do just that by bringing our avid fan bases together. The notion of togetherness seems more relevant now more than ever,” said Gallo’s Chief Marketing Officer, Stephanie Gallo.
