Vinos Pijoan is a small family winery established in 2002, in the up and coming region of Valle de Guadalupe of Baja. Less than 20 miles north of Ensenada, at just over 1,000 feet in elevation, the winery was founded by Pau Pijoan. Mexican of Catalan origin, and a veterinarian by profession, Dr. Pijoan made his first barrel of Cabernet-Merlot in 1999, while approaching his retirement, and decided to fully immerse himself in the winemaking trade. He credits his training as a scientist for informing his discipline and methodical study of winemaking. Named after his daughter, “Paula,” an Oceanographer, who works closely on her parents’ estate, Valle de Guadalupe "Paula," is a red summer wine blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah, coming from a 25-year old vineyard.

Aged for five months in barrel, the Petite Sirah undergoes carbonic fermentation before all three varieties are blended together. It’s young, light and aromatic, with notes of raspberries, cherries, and wild strawberries, with hints of vanilla, soft tannins and vibrant acidity.
