Ackley Brands acquires two wineries from E&J Gallo

Ackley Brands has announced the acquisition of Columbia Winery and Hogue Cellars from E&J Gallo. The sale includes all assets from both wineries, including the brands, intellectual property, inventory, equipment and facilities. According to the company, Ackley intends to keep all staff members from both Columbia and Hogue. In addition, Ackley aims to expand the brands and reopen Columbia's wine club, which closed in late 2023. With the acquisition, Ackley Brands is said to instantly become a 'major player' in Washington, with Columbia and Hogue together producing 130,000 cases annually. “Both these brands are icon, heritage brands,” said Brandon Ackley, founder and president of Ackley Brands. “We’re interested in running good culture companies and investing for the long-term.” Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
