As a longtime leader in the wine industry, Francis Ford Coppola will have an equity stake in Delicato Family Wines and join Delicato’s Board of Directors, “pivotal in guiding the continued growth of Delicato for years to come,” said a news release. The company will continue to be managed by President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Indelicato and Corey Beck will join Delicato’s executive leadership team as EVP, Production and Chief Winemaker.

Inglenook and Domaine de Broglie Winery and vineyard will remain separately owned and run by Francis and the Coppola family.
