Job Description

Simi Winery - Location Summary

Simi Winery has been producing wines in Sonoma County since 1876, and continuously making wine in the same stone cellar in Healdsburg since 1890. It was founded by Giuseppe and Pietro Simi after they left Tuscany in search of gold in California. Over the past 140 years Simi continued to produce fine wines, first under Giuseppe and Pietro and then after 1904 by Giuseppe's daughter Isabel. It was one of the few wineries in California that survived Prohibition and they kept 500,000 cases in their cellar ready to be sold as soon as Prohibition was repealed. Today Simi has several vineyards in Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley, each with a unique terroir that provides distinguished wines depicting those regions. As we have from the beginning, our wines reflect Sonoma County - a small, scenic, and stunningly diverse region along the Pacific Coast.
