Bronco Wine Company is a corporation that owns dozens of wine brands, based out of Ceres, California. It was founded in 1973 by brothers Fred and Joseph Franzia with their cousin John, relatives of area legend Ernest Gallo (Bronco is a contraction of the words “brothers” and “cousin”). According to Wikipedia, it owns 35,000 acres of land, mostly in the Central Valley, with storage and production in Ceres, Napa, Sonoma, Escalon and Madera. They are primarily known for their bulk and inexpensive California wines, many of them proprietary supermarket and restaurant labels. The most successful of these is Charles Shaw “Two Buck Chuck” sold at Trader Joes. Some of their many other wines include Estrella, Oak Ridge, Dona Sol, Napa (Creek, Crossing, Landing, Ridge and River), Salmon Creek, Rutherford Vintners, Sea Ridge and Thousand Oaks. These and others are produced under the subheadings of Classic Wines of CA, Domaine Napa Wine Co., Antares Wine Co., and 585 Wine Partners Read more »

  • Dakine Bronco Glove 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was recommended by the wine guy at Trader Joe's as one of their top sellers for $5. GREAT VALUE if you like a clean, clear wine with nice balanced pear and citrus without being too fruity. It was a hit as a nice refreshing wine, very easy drinking and nothing cheap about the experience. Read More
