Today, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, one of the most acclaimed wine publications in the United States, named Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery as 2018’s American Winery of the Year!
Presented as part of Wine Enthusiast’s annual Wine Star Awards, this title represents the highest standard of excellence for an American winery. It is awarded based on a winery’s commitment to quality, innovation, sustainability, and heritage.
Each year, only a handful of America’s 6,000+ wineries are nominated for this prestigious award, and the competition is fierce. With over 100 years of experience cultivating vines and crafting fine wine, Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery has deep roots in the Los Angeles community, and constantly strives for winemaking excellence. Its estate vineyards are located in California’s distinguished wine regions of Paso Robles, Monterey, and Napa Valley.
“We are deeply honored by this recognition,” said Anthony Riboli, 4th generation winemaker. “This award is a testament to my grandparents’ hard work and determination through the decades. The third and fourth generations honor their legacy by continuing to strive each day to make our winery the best it can possibly be.”

Founded and operated by the Riboli Family for four generations, San AntonioWinery’s portfolio includes nearly 20 diverse and award-winning brands. Their vineyards are located in Napa Valley, Monterey, and Paso Robles. Also in Paso Robles is their new 125,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility equipped to produce 300,000 cases of wine per year. The family also imports a handful of still, sweet, and sparkling Italian wines, such as Stella Rosa.
