By 1880s end, Los Angeles was the premier appellation for grape growing and winemaking in all of California. By the early 1890s, vineyards stretched to encompass Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties too, as the area’s temperate Mediterranean climate made it an ideal location for growing fruity, lush, richly-colored grapes.
San Antonio vineyards, owner of San Simeon, are now located in Paso Robles, Monterey, and Napa Valley and
they are proud to be the most-awarded winery in Los Angeles.
San Simeon Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
San Simeon Cabernet Sauvignon offers bright aromas of raspberry and black cherry. Ripe flavors of spicy plum and currant are complemented by nuances of cocoa and cedary oak from barrel aging. Structured tannins provide texture and depth with a lengthy finish. Elegant and attractive aromas of dark violet, red rose, cedar and a touch of vanilla serve as a promising entry point to this Cabernet. A bit of char kicks in on the palate alongside dark chocolate, espresso and ripe plum skin, with roasted beet in the background.

San Simeon Chardonnay Monterey 2011
Along California’s Central Coast, the Monterey appellation of Monterey County provides an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. This cool climate is highly influenced by the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean. Starting at the Monterey Bay, morning fog and afternoon wind concentrate flavors while preserving the natural acid balance of the grapes. San Simeon Chardonnay is a rich, mouth-filling wine with ripe tropical fruit flavors with complements of citrus and pear. The nose reveals bright fruit and oak toast with hints of vanilla and spice. Mineral notes express the rocky terroir of the vineyards. This structured and well-balanced wine shows a lengthy finish with potential to age.
