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 was great but I can't help you much with the tour.

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 thought we'd like. It's a busy place and is more like a wine store, but we got to taste some things that were new to us and it was an easy way to spend some time. We also had a light lunch in the restaurant there (Maddelena).

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 of folks who came in to purchase other products. With all of the wonderful, true wineries in Temecula, it is best to skip this stop and just head over there.

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 case of wine between the four of us. We also took the winery tour and learned about winemaking from Hector (hard to believe he's been working there 38 years!). Also enjoyed the lunch with live music in the background and browsing in the gift store which would be an excellent place for last minute holiday gifts: really cute stuff! Given that the wine-tasting was free, as well as the tour, one could really say that the historic San Antonio Winery is a hidden gem of Los Angeles. Prost!

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.
