San Antonio Winery is the only winery within the city limits of Los Angeles. According to the tour host, it is the only winery in the Southland to survive prohibition (by making communion wines for the Catholic Church). The winery is quite old, and *huge.* If I remember correctly, they make as many as 850,000 cases of wine a year, a major wine operation by any reckoning. Their labels include San Antonio, San Simeon, Maddalena, Riboli, and others. Making such a huge volume of wines, it is my opinion, has the unintended consequence of lower quality of those wines. The wines we tasted, dry whites and reds and also sweet and dessert wines, were for the most part very average. Strangely enough, their dry whites were better than their sweet wines, except the chocolate Port, which was excellent.
