There’s a revision to a blockbuster deal set to shake up the wine industry. Constellation Brands and E.J. Gallo say they have revised the terms of their merger agreement to satisfy anti-trust concerns. That merger is now valued at 1.1 billion dollars, down from the initial value of 1.7 billion after Constellation says it will hang on to its sparkling wine, brandy, concentrate, and dessert wine lines, instead of selling them to Gallo.
