WERC members will received a specialized tour for industry professionals in warehouse, distribution, logistics and material handling.

Founded in 1933, E. & J. Gallo Winery is headquartered in Modesto, CA and is a pioneer in the art of grape growing, winemaking, sustainable practices, marketing, and worldwide distribution. The Gallo portfolio is comprised of more than 100 unique brands and distributes to 90 countries worldwide. The tour begins with an overview and history of the 85 year old company, followed by a walk through the underground cellar, warehouse areas and various production facilities. The site features a glass bottle manufacturing plant, in addition to over 2 million square feet of warehouse, logistics, and distribution space. Inside Gallo loads trucks, railcars, and containers for international shipment. Automation is a must with Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), that pull trains of pallets of finished goods and components to many locations around the sprawling campus.

In addition to the tour, the day will feature networking, a buffet lunch and wine tasting. We will receive a Winery overview of present and planned automation by Michelle Creevan, Sr. Director of Supply Chain Logistics. We will meet at G3 Logistics and Distribution Center about 6 miles from E.& J. Gallo Winery. Guests will board a bus for transport to the winery and will return to G3 at the end of the day.
