We know summer is filled with playing by the pool, grilling, and visiting friends and family. We also know summer is very hot, and the air conditioner is our best friend during these hot months, meaning we tend to favor easy to whip up snacks over a meal that requires stovetop cooking. Visit your local San Antonio Winery, or shop your favorite summer wines, and get comfy with Netflix, wine, and snacks! We’ve paired some of our favorite wines with fun flavors! Be sure to tag us in your photos if you try them out!
With summer just around the corner, we are looking for ways to add healthier alternatives to all of our meals. That means we can make room to enjoy that extra glass of wine and be sure we are getting our serving of vegetables in every day. Fire up the grill and get to husking because this dry-rubbed flank steak with grilled corn salsa and cauliflower mash are the missing pieces to your perfect summer!
The spices in the rub pair perfectly with our San Simeon 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas of dark raspberry and black cherry, with ripe flavors of spicy plum and currant allow for a lengthy finish and add body to the flavorful meal.
Join us in celebrating our Centennial Anniversary! We have the perfect food pairing to complement our Centennial Blend.
St. Patrick’s Day is often a time wine drinkers who don’t normally enjoy beer, put on a smile and have a green ale. Don’t let this be you. Instead, enjoy your favorite wine and cheese pairing, try one of our suggestions below, or join us for our Wine and Cheese Pairing event!
This weekend at our Wine and Cheese Pairing event, you can see how to create these pairings and so many more in your own home! Our LA event is sold out, but we still have space available for our Ontario event on Sunday, March 19. Click HERE to purchase!
Roses are red, but wine can be too! Celebrate love all month long with San Antonio Winery – whether you are celebrating a romantic love, family love, or your Gal-entines, San Antonio Winery is the perfect location to wine, dine, and feel oh so fine! Why? We are proud to offer the perfect wine for every palate.
The perfect pair takes a lot of effort, from finding the complementing balance to making sure the match is correct. Whether this is a food pairing or the perfect romantic pair, we want to help bridge these two worlds together by creating the ultimate date night recipe for you and your loved one.
Porchetta is quickly rising in the ranks of popular dishes, though many times it is more appetizing when dining out rather than being made at home. Not for this recipe though. The porchetta pork shoulder with salsa verde recipe below pairs excellently with our Opaque Darkness wine, a hand-crafted artisan blend that reveals ripe flavors of raspberry and blackberry with notes of spice and vanilla.
There are few things that can warm you up from the inside out during these crisp winter months, and we’re sharing two of our favorites with you here! This winter beef short rib stew pairs perfectly with our San Simeon Stormwatch; it’s the ultimate artisan wine pairing for these chilly winter nights.
San Simeon Stormwatch is a super premium red Bordeaux blend (47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 16% Malbec, 11% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc) aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months creating a dark, rich, and mouth-filling body. With ripe flavors of blackberry and raspberry and touches of spice and vanilla, this artisan wine complements the flavorful meat of this short rib stew.
Mulled wine is a sweet wintertime beverage, especially delicious on a cold winter night. It’s made by heating wine and mulling spices so the flavors combine into a delicious, warm, spice-packed beverage. We make it here at the San Antonio Winery every holiday season for our guests to enjoy. We’d like to share our newest mulled wine recipe with you to enjoy on those chilly winter nights.
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. It’s that special time of the year we get a break from our hectic schedules and can reconnect with friends and family while devouring our favorite comfort foods.
Although we love traditional favorites, the best Thanksgiving menu includes both classic family recipes and dishes with a modern twist. Feast your eyes on some of these Thanksgiving food and wine pairings featuring Maddalena Wines, San Simeon Wines, Stella Rosa, and Bodega Sangria!
Stuffing & Maddalena Pinot Grigio
A light white wine like Maddalena Pinot Grigio has the perfect flavor profile to elevate the rich and savory flavors in a buttery stuffing, allowing the strong array of spices and herbs to come through. When pairing wine with foods, it’s important to make sure that the flavors complement each other. Stuffing has such a distinct flavor that when selecting a wine to pair with it, we wanted to choose a wine with a delicate flavor, making Maddalena Pinot Grigio the perfect fit.
Classic Mashed Potatoes & Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose
This pairing had us at mashed potatoes! But to add some finesse to our childhood favorite, we added Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose and fell in love all over again! Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose gives some pep to the mashed potatoes’ step with its notes of apricots and wildflower. The fizz in Imperiale Moscato Rose left us wanting more!
Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole & San Simeon Chardonnay
The bright fruit flavors of San Simeon Chardonnay pairs nicely with creamy sweet potato casserole. We made a salted pecan crust for our sweet potato casserole, bringing out even more of the toasty vanilla flavors in the wine.
Truffled Mac and Cheese & Stella Rosa Rosso
A hearty dish like Truffled Mac & Cheese requires a sturdy, distinct wine to pair with. And that perfect wine is Stella Rosa Rosso. It brightens up the nutty truffle flavors and mellows out the zingy cheesy goodness.
Glazed Maple Carrots & Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti
The most delicious and easiest way we like to eat our veggies is with Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti! We used fresh carrots and marinated them in maple syrup and cinnamon until they were soft. Moscato D’Asti has notes of honey, pear, and apricot, creating a nectarous flavor combination.
Buttermilk Cornbread & Maddalena Muscat Canelli
The deliciousness of crumbly buttermilk cornbread paired with semi-sweet Maddalena Muscat Canelli is a flavor we are thankful for! The mild sweetness of the cornbread and wine creates a smooth, delicious, and refreshing fusion of flavors.
Corn Pudding & Bodega Sangria
We couldn’t leave Bodega Sangria out of the Thanksgiving mix. Bodega Sangria cut the hearty creaminess of the corn pudding nicely, leaving room for our palate to taste our favorite sangria that bursts with notes of fresh citrus fruit and cinnamon.
Pumpkin Pie & Stella Rosa Peach
Our Thanksgiving dinner was so delicious, we almost thought of skipping dessert, but we just couldn’t bring ourselves to leave out the classic Thanksgiving indulgence, pumpkin pie! When selecting a wine to pair with it, we began thinking of the robust pumpkin filling on the bed of flakey, buttery crust. Stella Rosa Peach brought out the nutty and slightly sweet flavors of the pumpkin and paired nicely with the creamy whipped topping.
Apple Pie & Stella Rosa Platinum
Okay, we know we already had pumpkin pie, but we figured, what’s Thanksgiving without apple pie!? And Thanksgiving is the time to indulge in our favorite foods, so we added one last pairing to our Thanksgiving menu: Apple Pie and Stella Rosa Platinum! Stella Rosa Platinum has a semi-sweet taste and wraps your palate in luscious notes of green apple and vanilla, the perfect complement for a slice of apple pie.
We have a lot to be thankful for, but most of all, we are thankful for all of you, our supporters! And because we are so thankful, we are giving away online promo codes for our wine! Follow Maddalena Wines, San Simeon Wines, Stella Rosa, and Bodega Sangria on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to be the first to know about November and December’s giveaways and holiday specials!
We will be celebrating our 100 year anniversary in 2017! It has been nearly 100 years of providing our customers from around the world with wine crafted by tradition, passion, and forward-thinking. It’s hard to believe that our winery began in a tiny downtown Los Angeles tasting room and has grown to three locations, one restaurant, and multiple estate vineyards in Paso Robles, Monterey, Napa, and Italy.
Last week, we started the celebration early with a 100 Year Kickoff at our original location in Los Angeles. Our friends at KTLA News covered the event, which was hosted by the Riboli family, owners and founders of San Antonio Winery. Check out the coverage by clicking the links below and learn about the history of the Riboli family, our wines, and more information about our centennial celebration!
