Edio Delfino was passionate about agriculture as a way of life and instilled that into his family. Our winery pays homage to our patriarch and is a way to ensure his name lives on!
Frank & Secondina Delfino come over from Italy to Ellis Island. They make their way to St. Helena and settle on 20 acres of land along the Calistoga Highway. 1930-Edio Peter Delfino is born.
Edio attends and graduates from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He joins the Airforce during this time, takes a job in the Sonoma County Agricultural Department, and starts a family with Joan.
Edio and Joan move to El Dorado County when Edio receives the job as Agricultural Commissioner. They establish Kids Incorporated (now Delfino Farms) with their seven children and become co-founders of the Apple Hill Growers Association. They become extremely involved in the agriculture industry of the county.
Chris and Robyn Delfino purchase the farm and start running Kids Incorporated. They establish the vineyards in 2007. During this time, Christine, Peter and Derek move to San Luis Obispo and graduate in Agriculture Business/Wine and Viticulture. After graduating, they become immersed in the wine industries of Paso Robles/Edna Valley for many years.
Christine, Peter, and Derek move home to start Edio Vineyards at Delfino Farms with their brother Ben and parents. In 2018, Peter makes his first vintage of wine and, in 2020, the tasting room opens!
