Since 1917For nearly a century, the San Antonio Winery has been the heart of winemaking culture in Los Angeles. The winery's founder Santo Cambianica left his home, Berzo San Fermo, in Lombardy, Italy in 1910. Then in 1917 he founded his company on the original Lamar Street location where it still exists. Santo was a truly devout catholic who produced sacramental wines for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to survive prohibition. His nephew Stefano Riboli joined the business shortly after prohibition was repealed. Santo, Stefano and Stefano's wife Maddalena - the winery's matriarch - built a thriving, innovative business, which no spans four generations. The rich historical tradition is a source of great pride for the Riboli family.
