Paso Robles: Home to 2018’s American Winery of the Year

Wine Enthusiast recently awarded Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery with the prestigious American Winery of the Year award. Its flagship location in Los Angeles is the country’s original urban winery and a historical landmark of the city. After 102 years, San Antonio Winery continues to be owned and operated by four generations of the Riboli Family from its original LA location, as well as in the beautiful wine country of Paso Robles.

Both locations offer a tasting room where you can sample the entire portfolio of the Riboli family’s award-winning wines. In Paso Robles, you can also enjoy delicious, seasonal cuisine at the bistro and browse the gift shop, filled with unique gifts for yourself or your favorite wine lover. The Paso Robles tasting room includes the beautiful Heritage Room, available for private events, as well as a beautiful outdoor covered patio alfresco, and an open-air Fountain Patio for you to enjoy your delicious meal and wine.

The Riboli family produces an array of award-winning Californian and Italian wines including the Maddalena, San Simeon, and Opaque brands, whose wines come from the family’s premium estate vineyards in Paso Robles and Monterey. The Riboli family also created the country’s number one imported Italian wine Stella Rosa.

The Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery has become a leading example of a thriving family business, through its ability to adapt and deliver creative innovation in ever-changing times, making them one of the most successful wineries in the country. The Prohibition era changed the wine industry forever when more than 100 wineries in Los Angeles were forced to shut down, but San Antonio Winery stood the test of time and flourished as the number one producer of altar wines. Four generations later, the family who grew up working in the winery, continues to implement the same values and work ethic they learned as children.

Part of that work ethic includes continuing to innovate and expand the business. As such, Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery is now debuting a gorgeous new Hospitality and Events Center in Paso Robles for weddings, business meetings, and more. It’s attached to the new state-of-the-art, energy-efficient winery where all the grape crushing, fermenting, and aging of the winery’s bold, red wines takes place.
