The one word that Lisa Evich would use to describe SIMI wines is “timeless.” Through meticulous care and attention in both the vineyards and the winery, she works to maintain the timelessness of both SIMI and Sonoma County.
Hailing from Santa Rosa, Lisa fell in love with food and wine at an early age. While at Sonoma State University, her focus was on Environmental Studies and Planning. But there was something about the vineyards that called to her. It wasn’t just the science of winemaking, but the art as well, the craft that could translate a place into a bottle.
Lisa began her career at SIMI, spending nine years with the winery before diversifying her experience with positions at Pine Ridge and Arrowood. SIMI welcomed her home as winemaker creating world-class wines. And while Lisa would never require her friends and family to exclusively drink SIMI, there’s no greater compliment than for someone to tell her that SIMI is their house wine.
