With World War II on the horizon, Stefano’s mother and father knew it was the appropriate time to return their son to the US.

In 1936, a young Stefano Riboli returned to the United States from Italy. With World War II on the horizon, Stefano’s mother and father knew it was the appropriate time to return their son to the US where he was born fifteen years earlier. Stefano immediately began apprenticing under his Uncle Santo, learning the countless skills necessary to operate a winery; he proved himself invaluable as a partner to his uncle and to the winery.

When Stefano married Maddalena

Satragni in 1946, the winery was already an established institution to California’s wine community. During this time, the industry still existed mainly in the South, but Northern California was making fast strides in, eventually gaining much of the industry by the 1950s. Santo, Stefano, and Maddalena, however, decided to remain with their family in Los Angeles where they had been blessed by good fortune.

Santo Cambianica passed away in 1956 and wished that Stefano continue the business for the next generation. Stefano was granted full ownership of the San Antonio Winery. He and Maddalena had a powerful vision of their future and family.
