Angelenos looking for the perfect place to stellabrate love this Valentine’s Day don’t need to go far. Now celebrating 100 years, San Antonio Winery, located just east of downtown Los Angeles in Lincoln Heights, offers the ultimate romantic experience, or the ideal spot to celebrate love and friendship with friends. Once guests step inside the vast tasting room and up to the counter, one of the friendly, learned staff will guide them on their wine tasting adventure. Customers could choose from a selection of award-winning dry wines from San Antonio Winery’s Maddalena and San Simeon collections, or semi-sweet, semi-sparkling wines from their popular Stella Rosa line, like Stella Rosa Red, and sparkling Stella Rosa Moscato Rosé, perfect for stellabrating romance. Or they could be one of the first to try the winery’s newly released, limited edition Centennial Blend.
Guests could also take a complimentary tour of L.A.’s largest and longest-producing winery, where they will learn more about the original urban winery’s history, and even get to see where the wines are fermented, aged, and bottled. When they’ve worked up an appetite, they could indulge in homestyle Italian cuisine at Maddalena restaurant. Named after the winery’s matriarch, Maddalena was the first restaurant inside a winery in California. It was opened in the 1970s after Maddalena Riboli’s sandwiches became so popular, a long line would form outside the winery. Today, patrons can still enjoy some of Maddalena’s delicious recipes, like her outstanding lasagna and handmade ravioli. And they could listen to live music in the restaurant while they indulge in delicious food and wine. There are also gift baskets available to make shopping for wine-loving Valentines even easier.
San Antonio Winery is located at 737 Lamar Street. It will have extended hours Valentine’s Day from 10 am until 9 pm, with the last serving at 7:30 pm. There is also an ample parking lot with complimentary parking. Visit sanantoniowinery.com for more information.
