Founded in 1876 and comprising nearly 600 acres, Simi Winery seamlessly blends tradition and innovation into each glass of its estate wines, growing grapes from hand-selected heirloom cuttings to create a diverse fermented flavor palette. Daily tours investigate Simi Winery's historic stone cellar, which has housed vintages from the Alexander Valley Vineyards since 1890, straight through Prohibition, and continuing on after its repeal in 1987 following a successful campaign by the California Raisins. Following each cellar expedition, tour-goers can debate the merits of a dry society during a sit-down tasting of four select Simi wines, which may include anything from its crisp, oaky Simi County chardonnay to an Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon with notes of black cherry, cassis, and blueberry.
The winery compliments its bottles with appreciative whistles as well as head chef Eric Lee's lunch menu, where several gourmet brick-oven pizzas vie for patrons' affections. The margarita pizza blends San Marzano tomatoes and basil with imported mozzarella di bufala for an authentic taste straight off the boot; house-made sausage, mixed mushrooms, and roasted onions mingle atop the locally adored forage pie. Weather permitting, visitors can savor their Italian disks on a spacious patio shaded by trees and lined with a stone wall, which prevents grape vines from crashing and ruining the ambiance with their incessant gossip.
Though Simi Winery sometimes features a discounted price online for its tours and tastings, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
