For almost 100 years, The Riboli Family has prided itself on quality, award winning wines. It is with honor and pleasure that we humbly thank Wine Enthusiast for nominating us for American Winery of the Year for 2016.
San Antonio Winery has remained in its historic Los Angeles location since 1917 and now spans four generations of family members. Through changing times, we made it through Prohibition, thanks to a solid relationship with the church, and the permission of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to sell wines for sacramental and ceremonial purposes. From Los Angeles, San Antonio Winery has spread its horizons to Rutherford, Napa, Paso Robles, Monterey, and across seas to Italy. It is because of our loyal customers that our winery is still producing award winning wines. Thank you, Wine Enthusiast, for recognizing San Antonio Winery as an American Winery of the Year Nominee, and thank you to all of our loyal customers who have shared your stories with us.
“San Antonio Winery has been with our family for four generations. My Grandfather brought my dad here on his first visit to California in the 1930’s telling him that if he ever came to California again, it would because of the WINE!! My dad kept his promise when he brought us to California in 1967; the first attraction was SAN ANTONIO WINERY in Los Angeles, most dads take their kids to Disneyland but not my dad! When my husband and I got engaged, my dad said ‘Well it’s time to visit the winery.’”
“First I’d like to say that I have been going to San Antonio since I was 15-years-old, when the winery had a just a small tasting room. I would wait patiently while my mom tasted. It was our Sunday ritual to eat at the cafe with my parents. I now am 35-years-old and take my three kids to the winery on Sundays to eat while I wine taste or have a glass of vino at the bistro.”
You might think that the City of Angels is home to dozens of wineries, but the truth is that many of the wineries that once thrived in Los Angeles’ booming wine industry were wiped out after The Great Depression and Prohibition. Only one survived and still remains, making it the only and oldest winery in Los Angeles: The San Antonio Winery, LA’s winery. The San Antonio Winery has been making wine for nearly 100 years. In fact, 2017 marks San Antonio Winery’s 100-year anniversary.
