although located in an industrial area of LA, this family owned (yes the 94 yr old owners still visit the shop every day) has an amazing selection of wines, and the restaurant offers a wide variety of valued priced meals (of course wine is extra but it is reasonable) ..A must see when touring LA.

If someone had told me that a historic winery was nestled next to ChinaTown in LA...I would tell them they had finished one bottle too many! Yet the San Antonio Winery (Family owned and operated for four generations) is a contradiction in so many ways. I read the negative reviews of the winery, but decided that I would make the... More

Driving up the 15 going north , we noticed some traffic and curious to see what was around. San Antonio Winery. After clicking on it, and seeing it had food as well. We were a bit bummed to discover that is only at the LA location. Still we strolled around and suprised to discover the winery labels over 10+ wines... More

The only one to have survived the hundreds of wineries which were located here. Delicious lunch which consisted of Linguini Scampi, Shrimp Salad, soup, and Tarragon Chicken Sandwich. All guests were happy. Gracious staff, festive atmosphere. Will return to try the wine tasting, explore the wines on sale and to take the tour. Familiar with the Paso Robles location.

Holy crap this place has 3 free complimentary tastings. If you are a lightweight like me you will feel the buzz quickly. Lots of sweet wines to sample. This place is crowded but there are a good number of servers to assist you. I ended up purchasing 9 bottles, yes I will be seeing you again San Antonio Winery! Don't... More

This is a hidden gem inside city of Los Angeles. We came here to celebrate a birthday. Food is cafeteria style. All items are displayed in a large table. Our party has chicken marsala and Beef of the Day. They were both fantastic. We went Sunday noon and it has live music. We missed the tour every hour on the... More

The wine shop is big and holds a wide selection of wine. The staff at the counter was very helpful and knowledgeable. I appreciate the visit there but I just find it strange that its location is somewhere that looks like an industrial/factory zone. I guess I had a different perception of a winery.

They have ample parking. It is an old winery which lives up to it's name. If you are into wine, this is the place.

We visited for an office birthday party. The restaurant had a pre-order variety menu for our group. We chose a salad and sandwich menu - made our lunch for 18 people fast and efficient. When we arrived, we were shown a table with the actual food items prepared and wrapped in plastic so we could see what we would acutally... More

I absolutely love this place. I've been coming here since 2007 and rave about it to friends and co-workers. The free tours and tastings are awesome and the food is delicious. I love the ambiance of the restaurant and that the prices are very reasonable. This is a great excursion for friends but it's also a perfect setting for a... More
