Classical Music Question - There was a wine commercial on TV

This answer was rated:

Classical Music Question - There was a wine commercial on TV in the 1980's that played a classical song. It was a joyful uplifting song with crescendos while people toasted wine at an event like a formal party. I think it was a popular brand wine.
I did have a friend a long time ago that had this song on a compilation record. I don't think it was Mozart or Beethoven.
Any idea what song and artist this was?
Hello rbell,

I think you must be talking about the 1980 wine commercial for Ernest and Julio Gallo Wine.

The musical piece they used was "Hymne" by Vangelis.

Here is a link to a clip of that music.
