San Antonio Winery is the last remaining winery in downtown Los Angeles, a hidden gem and historical landmark operating in the same community where it was founded 100 years ago. Today, the L.A. River is paved and the vineyards have been replaced with businesses and homes. But San Antonio Winery remains the oldest and largest producing winery in Los Angeles with 100 years of winemaking, making it an essential component of the city’s cultural and historical landscape. In fact, in the early 1960s, Los Angeles’ Cultural Heritage Board designated the winery Cultural Monument Number 42. Still sitting on its original location on Lamar Street, the winery is the last vestige of the rich winemaking tradition of the greater Los Angeles.
The Riboli family is blessed to have four generations contributing to its longstanding success. Its estate vineyards are now located in Paso Robles, Monterey, and Napa Valley, and they are proud to be the most awarded winery in Southern California.
