SIMI in the Cellar on 11/10/18 11:00 AM

Simi Winery, was a typical big winery tour. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable about the winery which is fun. The samples given on the tour were very small and the bottle was corked almost as the last guess glass was being poured, not a chance of getting another taste if you missed a flavor or a smell that the guide was talking about. I enjoy wineries that allow you to walk sample.

Sorry to say that we were disappointed here. First, the location is off a busy road which doesn't do much for the quiet and relaxing winery ambiance that most people are looking for. Second, the wines were not very good. We were really surprised! They were also under staffed so we didn't get much time with the server to be able to discuss the wines. We won't be going back

WINE & CHEESE PAIRING on 5/19/18 3:00 PM

Worst experience of the 16 we visited. Host seemed annoyed at us for their miscommunication on a winery tour. They put our 'private' tasting in the middle of their tasting room even though it was a beautiful day with no one outside. The place sounded like a frat party and people were walking around us shopping. We could not hear our host, and she dressed very unprofessionally for a nice place

We had wanted to visit Simi because it looks very pretty from outside and we had friends visiting from out of town who wanted a winery tour and tasting experience. Unfortunately, there was no one to greet us, the person who eventually gave the tour was very inexperienced and kept referring to a piece of paper, certain parts of the winery were closed to the tours and the wine wasn't very good.

Tasting was set up on a table in the middle of merchandise in the TR. Wine was poured all at once to start and the host left to attend the tasting room bar. Hardly any info about the wine and the vintages on the notes were not what was poured. Had to go up to the bar to check out after waiting a long time with no wine. Ordered 2 bottles of white-they gave us diff. vintage than was poured :-(

It was 110 degrees out the day we were doing a cheese and wine pairing outside under the trees. Happily, SIMI changed it to an indoor event for the 6 of us. We sat in a lovely room at a table set and ready for our tasting. Our wines were paired with cheeses and jellies. Jim was wonderful in his explanations of the wine's complexities. We signed up for the Club and look forward to our 1st delivery.
