Ms. Dalese has worked as the Marketing Director at Chateau Chantal since 2009. Prior to returning to the winery, she obtained an undergraduate degree in Marketing and Management from DePaul University, a Graduate Diploma from the University of Adelaide, Australia in Wine Business, and completed 5 years of employment in the Chicago wine trade. During her recent time with the company, she has worked closely with Mr. Krupka in preparation for this transition. She comments, “I’m absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to move Chateau Chantal forward into the next generation. We have a dedicated long-term staff and team of leaders that make our operation possible. It’s a very exciting time right now for Michigan wine and there are many interesting challenges and opportunities in our path.” At 36, Ms. Dalese is the youngest, and only female, of the second generation winery leadership among the nine Old Mission Peninsula wineries.
