Simi Winery is part of the heart and history of Sonoma County. Two brothers from Tuscany immigrated to Sonoma County and fell in love with the region since it reminded them so much of their home region in Tuscany. In 1876, as the rest of the country was celebration America’s centennial these brothers founded Simi Winery. Now 136 years later, Simi Winery is the oldest continuing operating winery in Sonoma County and they still make wine in the original stone cellar built by the Simi brothers in 1890.
Two recently released wines show that Simi continues to lead the way for Sonoma County. The 2014 Simi Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious wine that integrates the old world complexities of minerality, acidity and finish with the new world fruit flavors of lime, grapefruit, lemon grass and tropical fruits with a hint of the grassy qualities you expect in a Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is a blend of 98% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Viognier and 1% Semillon. It has a great refreshing quality that makes it the perfect summer wine.
The 2014 Sonoma County Dry Rose is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Malbec, and 1% Syrah from various vineyards in Sonoma County but primarily from Alexander Valley. It delivers the strength of a Cab, softness of a Merlot and spiciness of Malbec to produce a nice summer wine. With a vivid pink rose-petal hue, the SIMI Sonoma County Dry Rosé offers fresh and delicate aromas of strawberry, pineapple, tart cherry, fresh tarragon, and a hint of white pepper; a perfect pairing for your wide-brimmed hat or seersucker suit!
