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 Read more »

    Forum post in the topic A purposely 'bretted' wine?

  • Just went and checked that Wine Berserker thread again, and it looks to be picking up a head of steam. Got a pointer there to a Wine Spectator article that I hadn't seen, which spotlights a recent UC Davis report on brettanomyces in wine. The article's a good one, not too long, and bears reading. Some highlights: 'Mousey. Wet Dog. Burnt plastic.... Read More

    Forum post in the topic A purposely 'bretted' wine?

  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... Read More

  • Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Landslide Vineyard 2011


    Fruit forward, light cabernet from Simi. Although no one else I was with seemed to like it, I though this cab was quite drinkable with my only complaint being the drying tannins. Would repeat, though I am not sure the wife would agree. Read More

  • We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect.  We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season.  Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid?

  • Simi Sauvignon Blanc 2012


    A more subtle style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both light and refreshing. Pear, apple and a hint of spice set off with medium acidity and good balance. A very nice mid week drinker. Read More

  • Testimonial: I bought a '95 Cab in a grocery store in St. Thomas in U.S. Virgin Islands in 2006, brought it home and stored until Aug. 15,2010. The cork was saturated to the top and disinagrated when opened, tryed the wine anyway and no surprise it was drinkable. That is some kind of good wine making!! or luck. Thank you for your world class win...
