Cheap California wine is not as popular as it once was, as a recent round of layoffs at a Sonoma County winery shows. E. & J. Gallo, the country's largest wine corporation, let go 32 workers at Clos du Bois Winery in Geyserville, leaving only 5 on staff, former employee Kevin McDonald told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Gallo spokesperson Lon Gallagher confirmed the layoffs, adding that the Geyserville facility would no longer be used to produce wine, with Clos du Bois production moving to other Gallo-owned facilities in Sonoma County.
