DTLA is developing at rapid speed… attracting both locals and visitors alike to check out the newest restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges, coffee shops, and mix of retailers. But with so many new businesses popping up all over DTLA, it’s important to remember that there are also businesses that have been a part of this community for decades. And they are just as worth checking out as the new places in town! This brings me to share a historic hidden gem in the heart of DTLA: The San Antonio Winery. Founded over 99 years ago in 1917, The San Antonio Winery is the last winery standing in Downtown and has become a landmark here in the city. In fact, in the early 1960’s it was officially declared by the city as a Historic-Cultural Monument and remains #42 on the list.
Encompassing a rich almost 100-year-old history, an informative and fun urban winery tour, and a variety of delicious wines to taste, San Antonio Winery is a true hidden gem in DTLA. Four generations of family have kept the winery not only still standing, but still flourishing, in the heart of DTLA.
I recently teamed up with Happening in DTLA to explore LA's last standing winery and write a more detailed article about the winery and my experience here.
