The venue’s construction will be completed in the fall

This year, the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery plans on finishing a new Hospitality Center, which will be completed in the Fall. The spacious facility has three separate rooms that can transform into one large room and hold up to 250 people. It has a modern atmosphere, mixed with old world charm: a lovely and cool stucco exterior, polished stained concrete floor interior, skylights constructed from redwood tanks, and glass doors opening to the barrel room.

All of these attributes invite guests to relax and socialize in comfort. “The new Hospitality Center isn’t just a wedding venue, it is a center where people can hold retirement parties, meetings, celebrations, VIP events, and so much more” shared Anthony Riboli, a fourth generation winemaker. The design of the Hospitality Center incorporates beautiful accents and touches of vintage redwood from their own tanks, giving the space a warmth and history, tying together old and new.

Opened in 2016, the modern winery production facility is committed to sustainable operations such as solar panels, complete wastewater treatment, and night cooling of the barrel room. The family also sustainably farms their estate vineyards in Paso Robles, Monterey, and Napa. San Antonio Winery has quickly become a well-known destination on the Central Coast of California.

The Riboli family has been in the wine business for over 100 years, and has a growing presence in Paso Robles. The family started in Los Angeles and still maintains the oldest remaining winery in downtown Los Angeles. The name San Antonio came from the Italian founder of the winery, Santo Cambianica, who dedicated the winery’s name to his patron saint, Saint Anthony.

The wide variety of wines found at San Antonio Winery’s tasting room and bistro make it an excellent place to visit, surrounded by the endless rolling hills and vineyards in Paso Robles.

San Antonio Winery sets very high-quality standards and has been rewards with gold medals and 90+ scores from the wine press. Visit and see what sets them apart from all the rest. Visitors to the winery can enjoy their various flights and samplings of wine, which include bold reds, crisp whites, refreshing sparklers, and semi-sweet wines. All under more than a dozen labels. After sampling the great wines, taste the bistro’s flavorful dishes. Lunches and early dinners of Italian and American-style foods are sure to please all appetites.

Their commitment to quality speaks volumes across all aspects of their business. Fourth generation winemaker, Anthony Riboli expressed, “Our family has been in the wine business a long time and make a great wine. We provide a comfortable environment in which to taste and enjoy our wines. We are known for our wide variety of wines and welcome everyone from wine connoisseurs to newcomers to taste and explore without a pretentious attitude.”

The wine tasting room, bistro, gift shop, and special events keep San Antonio Winery growing upward and onward as a staple of Paso Wine Country. From wines to lunches to events, the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery seemingly does it all. The family has been investing in Paso Robles for 3 decades now, and they take pride in creating delicious wines in a comfortable environment to enjoy them.

Fresh local food from the bistro can be purchased from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. and wine is available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at 2610 Buena Vista Drive off Hwy 46 East in Paso Robles. For more information, call (805) 226-2600 or visit www.SanAntonioWinery.com.
