SIMI Winery Partners With Reese’s Book Club on Their First Wine Collaboration To Celebrate the Heroines of Today’s Stories

HEALDSBURG, Calif., Nov. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SIMI Winery, one of the original pioneers of Sonoma County, announced a novel partnership with Reese’s Book Club (RBC), the online book club founded by Hello Sunshine founder Reese Witherspoon. Together, these brands will spotlight diverse female narratives and deepen connections within the community by offering book club members, wine drinkers and lovers of literature more ways to engage with stories and each other.

To inspire people to embrace the ritual of sharing wine and books, SIMI and Reese’s Book Club are kicking off the partnership with the Editor’s Collection, a limited-edition holiday box set of two SIMI wines, beautifully packaged and labeled, along with a personal note from Reese. The curated collection is available for presale exclusively at SimiWinery.com/the-editors-collection.

“We are thrilled to kick off SIMI Winery’s partnership with Reese’s Book Club. These brands are united by two inspiring female leaders — Isabelle Simi and Reese Witherspoon — who carved their own paths and, through sheer grit and determination, shared their passions with the world,” said Mallika Monteiro, EVP, chief growth, strategy and digital officer, Constellation Brands, the parent company of SIMI Winery. “Together, these female-led brands will spotlight diverse narratives and deepen connections within the community by offering readers and drinkers more ways to engage with these stories and each other. The Editor’s Collection was inspired by the quality and thoughtful craftsmanship behind both of our brands, and this is just the start of much more to come.”

Founded in 2015, Reese’s Book Club seeks to be the most meaningful book club community for women by celebrating narratives that place women at the center. Founded in 1876, SIMI is known for its legacy of female winemakers, starting with its namesake, Isabelle Simi, and continues its storied tradition of female leadership in winemaking today. Isabelle famously persevered after losing her father and uncle, and in the wake of Prohibition was able to create a thriving business when other wineries were struggling to survive.

“We’re always looking for ways to deepen our relationship with our wonderful reading community,” said Sarah Harden, CEO, Hello Sunshine. “When our members shared that wine was a top product they were seeking to enjoy alongside books, we knew that SIMI’s incredible female founder’s story and commitment to her craft would make a perfect pairing!”

Available for a limited time only, the Editor’s Collection will feature Sonoma County Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each box retails for $55 for a two-pack and $135 for a six-pack. Preorders are available now, and packages will ship beginning Nov. 15, 2021.
