Cheryl Indelicato grew up in one of California's oldest winemaking families and has been in the wine industry since she was a young girl. Today she is part of the leadership of DFV Wines, the third generation of the family owned and operated vineyards and wineries. As the proprietor of HandCraft wines, she aims to produce fruit forward wines similar to those she fondly remembers at the family dinner table growing up.
The lineup includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Chardonnay, all with a "playful" dash of Italian varieties. The California appellation Pinot Noir is 76% Pinot Noir with 9% Tempranillo, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Sangiovese, and 3% Petite Sirah aged in a combination of French and American oak.
The wines are distributed in the retail marketplace.
