San Antonio Winery Rolls Out the Barrels for Tasting
The Street Food Fest wasn't the only eating/drinking game in town on Saturday afternoon. The San Antonio Winery--Los Angeles' only working winery--held a barrel tasting led by San Antonio's winemaker Arnaud Debons. About 60 people were able to taste numerous wines for $35, including several straight from the barrel.
Among the wines sampled were: San Simeon Chardonnay 2008/2009, “Sarmento Vineyard” Monterey (Barrel Sample); San Simeon Petite Sirah 2007, Paso Robles (Barrel Sample) and San Simeon Petite Sirah 2006, Paso Robles.
The Component Tasting (2007) of San Antonio Winery Cask 520 was a highlight of the afternoon--guests sampled separate barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot wines, which made up the 520 blend.
