Deep Roots Grow A Legacy

Our founder, Gaspare Indelicato came to America more than a century ago and planted a vineyard in Manteca, California. It reminded him of Sicily where his family had grown wine grapes for generations in Italy. With his three sons, he established a vineyard and winery while simultaneously building a solid reputation for making quality wines. Gaspare passed along a tireless work ethic and dedication to excellence to his sons, the second generation. They expanded the winery and purchased prime vineyard land, further rooting the family’s legacy in California wine.

Today, third generation family members run the company with the fourth generation in training to join their parents, aunts and uncles within the next few years.

“My grandfather Gaspare came to this country with nothing more than a dream. It took decades of hard work, but he was able to make that dream come true,” says Chris Indelicato, CEO and President of Delicato Family Vineyards.
