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 various wines. The location may throw you off at first but once arriving, it's fairly nice inside and out. There's a restaurant attached but I did not visit. The wine tasting (3 samples) was a nice experience and the tour of the winery was cool. The tour guide was very informative. The food and snacks are expensive! A tiny cheese and cracker plate was about $7. Overall, a good place that I'd be willing to visit again.

San Antonio Winery is a great day trip attraction for Los Angeles locals and visitors alike. It's a family run business over 100 years old, and though the location is in a somewhat seedy part of downtown L.A. (what isn't?) the place itself is classy and well-cared-for. You can get a complimentary tasting, but we went for the 'deluxe' tasting so we could try more of the wines. There is a huge upgrade in quality when you sample the ones which are grown (and bottled) in Paso Robles. Not only that, but they are an excellent value as well. Both the white and red were big hits with our group and we would definitely all go back again. After our tasting we had lunch right there, and though the ambiance is somewhat lacking, since the whole 'deli' setup is right in the huge building the tastings are in, the food was excellent and everyone was pleased with the quality and flavor. Overall, highly recommended!

We were looking for the San Antonio Winery in downtown Los Angeles after having been to the wineries in the Santa Barbara area. We found ourselves in an unlikely spot for this - an industrial park. Only the murals of vines gave it away. When the door opened, the sight of lit barrels and a beautiful wine tasting room stunned us. Not only do they not charge for the wine but they offer a tour and have an extensive gift shop and restaurant as well. Everything was delicious and added to a perfect wine experience. Don't let the surroundings put you off. Once inside you will be carried away. And thee is free parking right across the street.

I live in LA this was another attraction my In-laws wanted to visit. I was surprised by location, in a pretty deserted area. Large scale wine store, if you want to purchase wine lots of variety. Went for the tour it was a mere 15 minutes, plus we had a group of ladies who talked through the whole tour, so we did not hear the tour guide much and he was clearly annoyed. Went to the tasting bar 3 free tastes...I liked the ones I tried, I did all whites a pinot grigio and a sauvignon blanc and prosecco. My husband , In-Laws and friend did reds and were seriously not impressed. I ended up purchasing a strawberry infused sparling wine from South America. Did not dine at the restaurant so cannot comment. My Father-In-Law was very dissapointed...
