Delicato Family Vineyards, based in California, is a family-owned company founded in 1924, with four generations tending its vineyards over nearly a century.
Dorothy began working in the family business in 1956, with her husband Vincent Indelicato. During her 60-year career in the wine industry, she served on the family Board of Directors, was an active member of the audit and finance committee as well as corporate treasurer.
She had been “retired” from the company before her passing, but still came to work every day and took part in many philanthropic projects, including sponsoring the annual Delicato art shows.
Dorothy was the official Indelicato family historian and took great pride in documenting her family history to ensure future generations appreciated the Indelicato heritage. She co-authored the Delicato Family Cookbook, which chronicles the family history told through stories and traditional family recipes.
“My aunt Dorothy brought joy and caring to not just our family, but our community, our employees and their families,” commented Chris Indelicato, President and CEO of Delicato Family Vineyards. “We will miss her smile, laughter, and especially her cooking.”
Dorothy is survived by her husband of 62 years, Vincent Indelicato; her children Marie Mathews and husband Kim, Robert Indelicato and wife Leslie; her brother Edward Cardoza and wife Dolores; and grandchildren Stephen Mathews, Mollie Bloudoff-Indelicato, Katie Bloudoff-Indelicato, and Kyle Bloudoff-Indelicato.
