Winery of the Month

January Winery of the month: Maddalena

Here is the perfect winery to welcome in the New Year. It’s a wonderful American success story about Italian immigrants who came to America in 1917, worked hard and became successful farmers. Santo Cambianica left his home in the Northern Italian province of Lombardy to settle in the midst of a bustling Italian-American community in Los Angeles and founded the San Antonio Winery on Lamar Street. Santo combined his love of the vine and ‘Old World’ family traditions with the innovative ideas and reward of hard work that America offered. San Antonio Winery, befitting its unique place in California history, remains the only producing winery in Los Angeles proper. Since the Winery’s founding, four generations have carried on Santo’s tradition of handcrafting fine wine, including the Maddalena brand of wines, named after the family’s matriarch, Maddalena Riboli. After the hustle and bustle of the Holidays, finding good value wines that over deliver in quality is celebration enough for 2019.
