Segment-1: California Wine History - Historic San Antonio Winery is a Cultural Monument in Los Angeles - Steve Riboli
 
01: Since 1917, the historic San Antonio Winery has been an oasis of good living and culture in the heart of Los Angeles. For over 90 years, the Riboli family has owned and managed the only producing winery in Los Angeles and the last of more than one hundred that once lined the Los Angeles River Basin. In the state-of-the-art functioning winery there is a comprehensive fine wine store, the gourmet Maddalena Cucina restaurant, gift boutique, and group rooms ideal for all occasions. This landmark is proud to be one of the most unique venues in LA and a large part of the city’s cultural fabric. Steve Riboli is third generation vintner.

Segment-2: California Wine History - San Antonio Winery & Riboli Family Wine Estates Adds Modern Twist to Rich Historical Tradition - Steve Riboli
 
02: San Antonio Winery has been the heart of wine making and wine culture in Los Angeles. It is the last producing winery in Los Angeles and continues to hand craft wines from estate vineyards in Napa Valley, Monterey, Paso Robles, and many viticultural areas throughout California. As the last of more than 100 wineries which once spread throughout Los Angeles, San Antonio produces countless award winning wines and is one of the last wineries owned and operated for four generations by the family who founded it. The Riboli Family traces its wine producing roots to Lombardia, Italy.

Segment-4: Industry News - 75 Year Old Tequila Tapatio Brand Arrives in U.S. and 11th Anniversary of Sutter Home for Hope - Lynn Krielow Chamberlain
 
04: After 75 years of distilling Tequila in Arandas and selling throughout Mexico, the venerable Tequila Tapatio is now available in the U.S. Distiller/owner Carlos Camarena has developed cult like status with Tequila lovers. The hard to obtain Tapatio brand stands alone with its traditional Tequila flavor profile accenting the 100% Highlands Blue Agaves. The Carlos Camarena Family distillery La Altena distills its Tequilas only from estate grown blue agaves. Tapatio sets the bar for the old authentic flavor that is disappearing in modern Tequilas. Sutter Home Family Vineyards is celebrating the 11th anniversary of Sutter Home for Hope. Since 2001, they've helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for breast cancer research, treatment and education benefitting thousands of families across the country. For every Sutter Home capsule (or twist off receipt) you mail in from August 1 - December 31, 2012, they will donate $1.00 to finding a cure. Postage-paid envelopes will be available on display at retail outlets.
