A lot of what we do at Simi is based on tradition, enhanced with cutting-edge innovation. Our philosophy has always been to maintain the quality and style that we're recognized for, while at the same time improve our methods for growing grapes and crafting wines to reflect the experience and knowledge we are accumulating and have been throughout the winery's 125-year history. Long ago we also realized the importance of Alexander Valley and knew that it would be a leading appellation for growing Bordeaux varietals. Today we showcase the region with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as our vineyard-designated Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1989 we purchased our Russian River Valley Goldfields Vineyard and planted it to hand-selected original cuttings from some of the best and oldest vineyards in California. This innovative technique gives us the amazing diversity of flavors that has made Simi's Russian River Reserve Chardonnay famous. Simi's unique vineyards are the genesis of our distinct wines. Our warm Alexander Valley Estate Vineyards are planted primarily to red Bordeaux varietals and are the source of Simi's Cabernet Sauvignon. These vineyards encompass nearly 600 acres and possess some of the most diverse soils of any wine-growing region, resulting from eons of geologic activity including a catastrophic landslide which changed the course of the Russian River. Complementing the Alexander Valley Vineyards, Simi's 120-acre Goldfields Vineyard in the Russian River Valley is the backbone of the Simi Chardonnay. Planted with a wide array of clones and field selections, Goldfields Vineyard is one of the most diverse vineyards in the Russian River Valley and all of California. With every taste of Simi wines you'll discover our devotion to tradition that is enhanced by our pursuit of the best vineyards, the best grape-growing methods, and the best winemaking techniques. Tasting Room Open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm for tasting and sales. Read less

Crisp and grassy-citrusy, with fig and melon overtones and a touch of wildflower honey in the finish, this is textbook Sauvignon Blanc. It has a streamlined elegance that makes it easy to drink, and will be versatile with an enormous range of foods.

Tangy, with very good depth to honeysuckle, fig and green apple flavors accented by lively citrus acidity and a hint of fennel on the finish. Drink now.

Tangy lemon-lime, pear and melon notes are direct and refreshing, with clean acidity and a lingering finish. Drink now.

Nice, stylish white wine, with plenty of well-ripened citrus and melon fruit, and a rich overlay of toasty oak. Zesty acidity refreshes the palate. Finishes a bit sweet, with a palate-coating honeyed flavor.

Lemony fresh on the nose. Then it fans out to reveal hints of gooseberry, melon, grapefruit and mineral tones. Quite delicate and lovely.

Intense, with lingering concentration to the nicely focused flavors of lemon, melon, fig and yellow apple. Drink now.

Easy and tasty, this is a nice everyday wine, with citrus, vanilla and grass flavors, a tangy bite of acid, and a dry, lemon-and-lime finish.
