Ernest and Julio Gallo have rarely spoken publicly about their lives - until now. Ernest and Julio: Our Story is the candid and powerful autobiography of two brothers who truly went from rags to riches. Here they tell for the first time of how they learned to make wine by reading pamphlets found in a public library, and of how their winery grew from nothing to become the largest and most successful in the world. Like Henry Ford, the Gallos created an industry where one had never before existed, and their life story reads like a great epic novel. Full of drama and wonderful characters, their memoir is a celebration of life, of brotherhood, of wine and business, of America and its dreams.
