About
Since 1917, the historical San Antonio Winery has been the heart of wine making and wine culture in Los Angeles. It is the last producing winery in Los Angeles and continues to hand craft wines from estate vineyards in Napa Valley, Monterey, Paso Robles, and many viticultural areas throughout California. As the last of more than 100 wineries which once spread throughout Los Angeles, San Antonio produces countless award winning wines and is one of the last wineries owned and operated for four generations by the family who founded it.The Riboli Family traces its wine producing roots to Lombardia, Italy, where founder Santo Cambianica learned to make simple table wines for his family and friends. Once he immigrated to the US, Santo established himself and his new winery in Lincoln Heights, which at that time was the home to many first-generation Italian immigrants. With hard work, determination, and good faith, Santo’s business survived the Prohibition Act by producing sacramental wines for churches and local parishes of Los Angeles County. Nearly every winery in Los Angeles failed during that time, resulting in an explosion of fresh opportunity for Santo. As the wine industry of California moved from Southern to Central and Northern California in the mid 1900’s, Santo and his nephew Stefano Riboli had no intention of leaving their new home in LA. Without this decision, an integral part of LA’s cultural renaissance would have been lost. While Santo and Stefano lived and developed their business in Los Angeles, they kept their focus on the burgeoning wine regions in the North and over time acquired vineyard properties in some of the most prestigious areas. This relationship between growing in the North and producing in the South is a true source of pride for the Winery and the Riboli Family.

I am a huge fan of Stella Rosa so when I found out I could get tastings at their winery, I was ecstatic.

I got the ‘Sweet as Spring’ ($22) semi sweet wines. This tasting flight when up $2 from $20 because they are now served in glass not plastic cups. The flavors are Lemon lime, Orange fusion, Golden honey peach, and Royals.

My mom does not drink but while I was away to the restroom, she took a sip of each. I came back and she asked for a cup of ice so that she could pour the lemon lime wine in to drink. That was shocking. Đít time in history.

Lemon line taste like uncarbonated sprite. They all taste like it sounds. It was hot so we sat inside but outside was very nice with live music.

For food we got Filet mignon stir fry ($23)
and Combination pizza ($19). Both were excellent choices. The filet was so tender and the sauce was to die for. It had a lot of pepper and some jalapeños on which gave a tiny peppery kick. The thin crust pizza had pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions and bell peppers.

The retail shop had all the Stella Rosa wine flavors that you normally can’t find in stores. They sell all kinds of gift and kitchen items. Will definitely check out other locations.

One of our favorite wineries... We decided to have a flight of wines (they have multiple options to choose from) along with a charcuterie. My wife likes a little sweeter wines while I prefer mine more dry. So we selected our flights and they brought over the cheese/meat charcuterie (great variety). We have a great afternoon and were finishing when I noticed (Santos, one of the owners whom I had met in the Los Angeles winery). I introduced myself and he actually remembered meeting me and my wife (he had given us as personal tour of the winey in LA). We spoke a while and he asked if we had seen their new winery nearby. I said no, and without hesitation, he said come on I'll take you over..(are you kidding this guy is one of the owners and he stops everything he's doing, to spent time with us?) So we go over, in his car to their new winery and gives us a private tour of the facility. Who does that??? These are the nicest people you will ever meet and offer great wine a very reasonable prices. While we were there, I had to pick up there 100 year anniversary special blend. Thanks Santos and San Antonio wineries for making their customers feel special.

Last time we were in Paso (Pre- pandemic) and had lunch with these friends, we also had lunch here, and it was decidedly better. I chalk it up to a restaurant struggling to get back to normal, so we will definitely return at a later date. My friend ordered the Wagyu Tri-tip sandwich and I ordered the Meatball Sandwich, and we shared one half of each. Meatball was too bland with little taste; more seasoning would help. Tri-tip didn’t taste like a Wagyu, and really didn’t overwhelm us since there was nothing extra in sandwich to enhance its flavor. We shared a 2018 Cab with the ladies which was very good as they enjoyed there Margarita and Roasted Veggie Pizzas.

We had a fantastic wine tasting experience with Gerrie at San Antonio, but the Italian cuisine was also on point...good times..

I came in here kinda buzzed from a previous tasting so I can't recall all the wines I sampled. Doh! All were tasty but these are the wines that were purchased.

2017 Viognier - Fruity, flowery and fun.
2014 Opaque Malbec - A solid Malbec that had to be shipped home.
2016 Opaque Darkness - This red blend was my favorite. Deep in flavor and ready to paired up with a fat prime rib. (medium rare=)

All the Italian dishes were ordered were packed with delish. We started off with pizzas then moved quickly to the pastas. All the pastas were fresh and the sauces savory. The chicken marsala and the lasagna were my favorite. That lasagna was perfectly baked and savory af. If I had to order only dish, (I'd be sad) it would be the lasagna.

Gerrie was a phenomenal host throughout our tasting. We learned a ton about Stefano & Maddalena Riboli and she incorporated their history into the numerous wines we tasted. Gerrie also ensured our dishes made it to the table timely which they did because the kitchen was on point.

The showroom had tons of wine accessories, gifts, snacks, etc in addition to the the bottles themselves. If you're doing the Paso Robles wine tour thing, you should definitely stop by the San Antonio Winery. It's located in the city so it's be a great first stop of grabbing a full lunch before heading out to the vineyards in the mountains. Cheers!

My wife and I are from Orange County and have visited San Antonio Winery in downtown LA. We were told that Paso was where the grapes were grown. We love sweet and fruity wines and SA winery does not let us down. We ended up buying 6 wines and tasted many more. The bistro food looked great but we did not partake. The patio area was nice to sit and sip with a breeze. We would vote this winery very high.

Paso Robles is one of the vivid Wine Region of California and has become quite famous for Wine tours. It's just half an hour from the Pacific Ocean and home to relishing local wineries and amazing bars and restaurants. But from a Wine lover perspective, the main highlight of my trip was San Antonio Winery. As I entered the winery, there were lots of wine barrel adornments with outdoor seating for relaxation. After entering the building, you'll see a long counter where you can taste their selection of wines. Going towards the right is the restaurant where you can buy food items or wine goods. Being accredited as the American Winery of the Year Award, San Antonio Winery has a huge assortment of wines from Sweet to exclusive Paso drywines. For foodies, San Antonio has an amazing bistro restaurant with hot and heavenly Italian food coupled with live music to make you go mesmerized. I also visited other wineries such as, Daou Vineyards, which has beautiful scenery from the top of Hidden Mountain Road, Justin Vineyards also with superb wine and gourmet dining, Eberle Winery with amazing wine cave and lively tasting room and L'Aventure Winery with a delightful wine tasting spots in Paso Robles. Overall, I enjoyed my trip and visiting wineries is an absolute delight.

This winery represents 3 different wineries. Their pricing for tasting is very reasonable and the wines are excellent. They have special pricing if purchasing more than one bottle. I especially liked there Opaque wine and the San Simeon Syrah wine. They also have an excellent lunch menu and a gift shop with hand crafted items. I enjoyed eating lunch by their fireplace and enjoying the wine tasting.

After tasting at one local winery, we decided to stop by the Bistro for a early relaxing lunch. What a great choice! The place was all ours with one other couple leaving as we came in. Stoped at the wine bar to order our lunch and wine, and when it’s ready the Seaver brings it to you.my wife and I decided to share a margarita pizza,and my friend and I also split a Wagu Tri- Tip sandwich. These were entrées were both very good and so was the wine. The decor was very nice and comfortable and relaxing.

Extensive wine selection available. Unsure what you want? Wine tasting is the answer, and they offer that as well. Hungry? They have a cafe to satiate your appetite.

Stop by and check them out.

We visited the San Antonio winery for a late lunch during the week. We were just about the only people there. The chardonnay was very nice. The sandwiches were great-particularly the meatball sandwich. We enjoyed hearing the story of the founders of the winery. The staff was extremely courteous and professional.
