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.
