UPDATE: The San Antonio Winery turns 95 this month; another reason to lift a glass!

Steve Riboli takes Off-Ramp host John Rabe on a tour of his family's San Antonio Winery, which has made it more than 90 years through wars, Prohibition, recessions and a Depression, not to mention the Great California Wine Revolution. It's one of the last remnants of LA's Little Italy, and still sells more sacramental wine than any other maker worldwide.

Tip for Off-Ramp listeners: The winery's wine shop is probably the best one in downtown Los Angeles, and it doesn't only sell its own makes.

The first piece of audio is the short version. Come on in for the one-hour tour we released as a special Off-Ramp podcast ... all the more reason to sign up for them at i-Tunes!
