Lisa Evich, a Sonoma County native hailing from Santa Rosa, CA, fell in love with the rich food and wine culture surrounding her at an early age.
At Sonoma State University, Lisa studied Environmental Studies and Planning with a dual emphasis in Water Quality and Hazardous Materials Management. Serving as a lab technician at William Hill Winery during harvest season, Lisa became enchanted with the world of winemaking.
Captivated by the art and science of winemaking, Lisa spent the next nine years at SIMI Winery before transitioning to work as an Enologist at Pine Ridge, followed by a term as Assistant Winemaker at Arrowood. Three years later, SIMI is happy to welcome Lisa back as Winemaker. In her new position, Lisa works alongside Director of Winemaking, Susan Lueker, and the SIMI winemaking team.
