Wine and spirits maker E. & J.

The complaint alleges that unremedied, the proposed acquisition would eliminate head-to-head competition between Gallo and Constellation and thereby was likely to substantially lessen competition in the United States for six types of wine-and-spirits products: entry-level on-premise sparkling wine, low-priced sparkling wine, low-priced brandy, low-priced port, low-priced sherry, and high color concentrates.The FTC announced approval of the final order in April 2021.
