Bodega Del Sur Winery Description

Bodega del Sur is the culmination of a dream of Evelyn and Victor Reyes-Umana. Victor began his love affair with wine in his native El Salvador.  Moving to California and later in life, traveling around the world,  solidified his appreciation for wines and increased his curiosity for the various wine styles of the different regions of the world. While visiting some friends in Chile in 1993, Victor and Evelyn had the great opportunity to visit many of the small, family owned wineries, and it was then that Victor uttered the fateful words, "This is what I would like  to do when I retire". 
His remark took Evelyn completely by surprise. She thought it was a pipe dream, and mentioned something about him being out of his mind.  After all, Victor was already a successful electrical engineer in California's Silicon Valley, and Evelyn was busy raising their sons, Victor Manuel and Luis Edgardo, with a full-time job teaching Spanish at Saint Matthew's Catholic School in San Mateo, CA.  What did they know about making wine? But this "nutty" idea started to flourish.Through the years, Victor had learned to appreciate and admire the wines the [Sierra Foothills] produced, and particularly liked the consistent quality and style of the wine produced by Chuck Hovey for another local Winery. It was through Chuck's wines that Victor learned that great wines could be made from Spanish varietals grown locally.  It was an incredible thrill for Victor and Evelyn to be able to team up with  Chuck, to produce the Bodega del Sur wines. Truly a dream coming true.
