Simi Roseto 2008
Sonoma County’s Simi Winery is one of California’s oldest wineries. It was founded in 1876 by Giuseppe and Pietro Simi. Giuseppe’s daughter, Isabelle, took over management of the winery at the age of 18 and ran it successfully until 1970 when she retired. Over the years, Isabelle planted her “Roseto,” Italian for rose garden, with a new rose planted in honor of each new U.S. President (except, of course, for President Herbert Hoover, who enacted Prohibition in 1920). To this day, Isabelle’s Roseto blooms fragrantly for visitors at the winery’s century-old cellars in Healdsburg. A tribute to Isabelle, the wine’s dry, delightfully fresh, crisp and juicy style honors her legacy.
