2021 Fuel Your Dreams Award Winner - CA

I enjoy my new role as Creative Manager with Delicato Family Wines, working closely with many talented, cross-functional teams. As Creative Manager, I support and guide my team. I apply my design skills to various projects for the Delicato portfolio of wine brands. The Delicato portfolio of brands now includes various Coppola brands. It is my pleasure to continue to design for the Coppola brands that reside within Delicato Family Wines, as well as the wonderful brands that Delicato is best known for.

I am continually inspired by fine art, packaging, branding, architecture, and innovation. I studied fine art, art history, and language while living in Italy for a year as a student (while attending Accademia di Belli Arti, Firenze.) I speak Italian as a way to stay connected with my family heritage. (My maiden name is Arigoni.) I am currently earning my Executive MBA degree in Wine Business. I received my Bachelor of Science degree with Cum Laude Honors from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

I apply my 27+ years of professional experience in wine label design and packaging, to every project. I have an eye for refined detail and a penchant for the luxury goods category. I forge relationships with team members while guiding and supporting a talented team of designers. I ensure that the creative assets that we design are innovative and authentic to the Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Delicato.

I live in Santa Rosa with my husband Dennis and two teenage sons, Connor and Liam. I enjoy cycling, hiking, swimming, tennis, camping, wine tasting, skiing, and traveling. I was born and raised in San Jose and we have enjoyed living in beautiful Sonoma County since 2006.

One of the top priorities that I support within the Wine industry is identifying ways to implement sustainable initatives. Living in Sonoma County, I value our environment and precious natural resources. I support initiatives that help our environment become carbon neutral and ideally, carbon negative. It's crucial tthat we preserve our environment, protecting our natural resources for future generations.
