Despite a demanding career in the tech industry, he has been creating art for many years. An inspiring trip to Mexico City in 2006 unlocked his creativity after seeing murals by famous political Mexican muralists, David Alfaro Siqueros, Jorge Gonzalez Camarena, and José Clemente Orozco at the “Castillo De Chapultepec” and “Bellas Artes”.
A variety of limited edition prints by Saul are available at the tasting roon, This print shown became the prototype for a Bodega Del Sur label for their Merlot.
“When I visit Evelyn in the Bodega del Sur tasting room, I like to sip her Cabernet Sauvignon,” Saul notes. He is also a Wine Club member at the winery.
