Bajadock: Enjoyed Sitara’s Lady In Red Monday evening at a neighborhood dinner.  The dinner was 3 different salads with crab meat and we started with a medium bodied Chardonnay.  In 20 minutes, we poured the Lady In Red, with its fruity aromas seducing us.  This Rhone style wine(Mourvedre base with Grenache and Syrah) is the perfect pairing for lighter dishes or sip it on its own for a refreshing happy hour, no matter what the clock says.  I MOAN for RHONE!  So, whytheheck did we only have one bottle???

With a Little Help From my Friends  , by Sitara Monica Perez

Posted on January 22, 2014 17 Comments

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written about life in my wine-drenched world. The 2013 harvest and crush was stressful, exhilarating, satisfying and altogether exhausting but sweetened by the help of two amazing friends, Diana and Chente. Post-harvest had a few moments of rest and recuperation, but only a few …

Last year at this time I had no wine for sale. My new beauties were all resting in their barrels and there wasn’t much for me to do but play with the dogs and explore the valley, chatting with other winemakers and developing my palette for Guadalupe Valley wines. This year, however, I have INVENTORY! I bottled what was in last year’s barrels to make room for this year’s wine and now have finished bottled wine everywhere in my house. The living room has cases stacked four high, five wide. A whole wall in my bedroom is dedicated to cases of finished wine. My hallway is lined with cases of labeled and capsuled wine that is ready to sell. Not being one to sit on my heels for long, I knew I had to get back into marketing and sales or drown in my own creation.

Thankfully I have a brilliant marketing guy on my side. Yep, you know him. He lifted heavy crates of grapes during harvest, built my front porch tasting bar with his son, Jack, and has created a style guide for Valley Girl Baja Wine that has lent polish, sophistication and a touch of glamour to my branding. London born, Chente has elevated my marketing efforts with his eye-popping graphics, attention to detail and phenomenal sense for design.

Having top shelf labels and a vision of what VGBW could be is not enough in itself however. I’ve got the drive and the dedication to take my developing wine business to the next level but do I have the experience? I’m a Liberal Arts major, kids! Business? Boring! I’m pretty sloppy when it comes to accounting to be honest with you. Money comes in, money goes out. That’s my Zen approach to bookkeeping in lieu of keeping a ledger. Fortunately, without consciously intending to I managed to make friends with a retired accountant who has tons of experience with start-up companies. My buddy, Tom’s got the background to speak with authority on what makes a business strong, and a firm grasp on what keeps a business moving forward and thriving. Plus he likes wine, and though I drive him crazy with my multi-focused experiments and shotgun approach to making money, he manages to keep me on track. I fondly refer to Tom as my Business Manager, and he … well, he puts up with me!

El Corcho Rosa

El Corcho Rosa, Valley Girl Baja Wine

Stop #4 of 11, September 2013 Valle de Guadalupe Cork Trail Tour

Needed a change up this early afternoon, so made a VIP reservation at a small  Valle de Guadalupe wine bar, El Corcho Rosa.

There was a crowd of Sitara’s friends there to help her with her Sunday afternoon grape crush.  Errr, make that a gang of grape juice drinkers were hanging at El Corcho Rosa for intensive quality control studies.

Sitara is in year two of her wine making and Valle de Guadalupe adventure.  She also provides tailored wine tours of the wine valley’s eclectic wine offerings.  I had the recent pleasure of two very different Sitara wine tours.  In addition to excellent wine, I learned a lot more about grapes and met some of the most interesting wine makers in the Valle de Guadalupe.c

But, back to wine DRINKING!, Sitara’s current cellar offerings from Valley Girl Baja Wine…


ALSO, Lady in Red: Mourvedre base with Grenache and Syrah

50 Shades of Red: Grenache base with Mourvedre, Cabernet, Syrah and Barbera

Tattoo Lady: Cabernet

We sampled the Sauvignon Blanc(Gold Sister) which was perfect for the warming afternoon sun.  The valley has cooled considerably this week, so that the high temperature today only hit 80F/27C.

Met a handful of locals and some Rosarito Beach invaders at Sitara’s.  Seemed that this gang has been around each other before, but, everyone welcomed us and gave us the wine descriptions.  Nice people to meet and chat, as you would expect of friends of Sitara.

Enjoyed the Tempranillo(Bold Sister), which is a very good wine value, bursting with bold flavors.

Sitara really was working her grapes off that day, as she has been all month.  I was able to catch her for about 30 seconds.

Had to fly to our next victim, so said goodbye to El Corcho Rosa and will invade again soon.  Here is the location:
