Modesto, Calif.-based G3, a multi-tasking wine industry service supplier, has purchased Tapp Label, a California-based printer for the alcohol beverage industry and beyond. The deal includes Tapp’s California printing plants in Livermore and Paso Robles, as well as one in Portland, Ore.—but not the Tapp facility in Toronto, Can., which has changed names to Ingenious Packaging Group. David Bowyer, former owner and CEO of Tapp, is now CEO if Ingenious.
Started by members of the Gallo family, G3 produces bottles, labels, corks, screwcaps, and alternative closures and containers; sells oak alternatives; provides bottling and filling services; hauls grapes from vineyard to winery; and handles logistics and storage for packaging and finished beverages. It contracts with E&J Gallo as well as wine companies not affiliated with the Gallo family.
