Getting to know the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery

With more than a century of winemaking in the U.S., the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery has a story worth sipping in.

At Carpe Travel I focus a lot sharing information to help educate you guys on American wine regions. After all, we have 50 states that produce wine. Yes, all 50 make wine!! So I was super excited to sit down with Billy Galanko from Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery in California for a few reasons. First off, the San Antonio Winery was named one of Wine Enthusiast’s American Wineries of the Year. Granted it was in 2018, but since 2020 is kind of a lost year it’s really like it was just last year. Secondly, the San Antonio Winery is a family owned and operated company that’s been producing wine for MORE THAN A CENTURY. In the United States 100+ years of winemaking is a loooooong time! Finally, their award-winning wines are delicious…

With estate vineyards in Paso Robles, Monterey and Napa Valley…and tasting rooms in Paso Robles and Los Angeles, along with an Italian restaurant – in LA – Riboli family  has a lot going on. In the following video interview, Billy and I talk about all this and more, including the 2020 California vintage not being a lost year. Whew! I’ve been super worried about that…
