Tom "T.L" Scheidt, Central Valley Liaison and Master Craftsman
Tom or T.L., grew up in Sanger, CA and has a rural industriousness. An electrician by trade, T.L. is a self-taught carpenter, mechanic, welder, dry-waller, gardener, plumber, concrete and soil specialist, and stained glass designer. Tom continues his vigorous career of over 40 years in the telecommunications industry.
Currently, T.L. refuses to retire and designs wine storage furniture from old oak barrels and custom BBQ’s in the backyard workshop he built. And rest assured, with his name on the label, Tom will be telling everyone in the Central Valley where you can find Mastro SCHEIDT Family Cellars!
Tom's wife, Judy Mastro Scheidt is the proud Italian mother to David and John. As both a professional and home cook, the kitchen is Judy’s workshop. Specializing in Italian-American cuisine, other influences include Mexican and French. Whether it's dinner for 4 or 40, managing the kitchen for Judy is like a day at the beach.
Tom and Judy reside in Fresno, California. T.L. has yet to upgrade the kitchen and Judy still doesn’t cook German food. Tom and Judy have been married over 40 years.
