“Wine is all about the nose, and putting it to the grindstone.”
– Isabelle Simi
Isabelle Simi knew this better than anyone. She steered the winery with defiant determination for over 70 years, persevering to better every last drop. In fact, in 1920, when the government threw down a deadly blow, in the form of Prohibition, she didn’t give up. She rolled up her sleeves and applied her wit. She held strong. And came out even stronger in the end.
