PROPRIETOR, HANDCRAFT ARTISAN COLLECTION
The launch of HandCraft Artisan Collection wines is the ultimate expression of Cheryl Indelicato's lifestyle and history. Growing up in one of California's premier winegrowing families, Cheryl developed a caring attitude about people and wine. Today, along with her siblings and cousins - the third generation, Cheryl is leading the family business into a new era. Cheryl's lifestyle is a perfect blend of artful California living and traditional Italian values. When away from the winery, she enjoys pursuing her passions for cooking, entertaining and gardening. Her menus are fresh and simple, and often made from ingredients picked from her own garden. Cheryl, a health professional and vintner, makes wellness a top priority for herself and her family.
As part of her passion to make a positive difference in people's lives, Cheryl created the program "HandCraft Cares" to support important causes with financial and in-kind donations. She is involved in a number of initiatives at the community level to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer. Since 2012, HandCraft has contributed $220,000, to support breast cancer research, prevention and awareness.
Cheryl serves as Monterey representative to the California Wine Institute, is a past President of the Monterey County Vintners and Growers Association, and is a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier. She lives in Monterey, CA with her husband and son.
