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

We went on the San Antonio Winery Tour and Testing with friends from L.A. that had lived in L.A. their whole lives and had never gone. It was fun, a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. They give tours on the hour. Luckily we got there right at 1:00 and went on the tour. One of our group is... More

We had a short stop at the winery for lunch during a bus tour for the Rose Parade. The lunch was very good and the service was great. The gift shop was huge with tons of wine and accessories available. They even ship for you. Didn't tour the winery part. Not wine drinkers so not to interested. Overall, the food... More

As another reviewer mentioned, this wasn't exactly what I expected from the oldest winery in CA. It does feature a lot of wines produced by the various wineries they own through out the state. You can taste many of them for free. The guy who helped us found out what style of wine we prefer & offered us tastings he... More

If you are thinking you are visiting a winery with this stop, it is not. It is basically a wine store with a lot of external wines, not only those produced by San Antonio Winery. Also the wines are pretty pricy. They do offering tasting for their own wines, however, we were basically neglected at the tasting counter in favor... More

What a wonderful wine-tasting experience we had today! It was a great girls' day out for sure. Our wine server Robert obviously passionate, smart and knowledgable about the wines he poured for us, his dry wit and humor (not to mention his good looks) put us all in such a great mood that we ended up buying well over a...

This place was pretty decent. The free wine tasting was great and free tour very informative. After the first visit and horrible customer service, the manager did an ok job of remedying the situation after being alerted. The place was crowded when I went - both times! Seems to be very popular. There seems to be a large selection if... More
