• IT’S NOT WHO YOU ARE, BUT WHERE YOU ARE FROM

    Many of things we like are determined by where they come from, especially when it has to do with food and drinks.  The region influences the end product and when you get the right people behind the process, the outcome can be pretty spectacular.  That’s what you’ll find with San Simeon Wines!

    Each bottle is carefully crafted to capture the essence of the California Central Coast.  The powerful flavors found in San Simeon Wines reflect the beauty and freshness of the Pacific coast town of San Simeon.   To give you a taste of a few of the red wines, the Pinot Noir is rich with berry and finishes with smokiness.  The Petite Sirah is jammy and has notes of vanilla spice.  San Simeon Merlot brings out mint and dark chocolate.

    All San Simeon Wines have been aged in French and American oak barrels and of course, we have white wines in this collection as well.  The Viognier and Chardonnay are filled with tropical fruits with complements of citrus and pear.

    If you haven’t tasted San Simeon wines, you can start with getting to know the highest quality and character of this collection by visiting SanSimeonVineyard.com, you can also purchase the wines from this site!  We ship to many states in the US and we welcome you to our 3 winery locations in California.  Find location information at SanAntonioWinery.com.

  • It’s Not A Race, But There Is A Winner

    As you know, winemaking is an art and not one that can be rushed. There are many components that make a bottle of wine one you want to buy over and over again. Such things as where the grapes were picked, the climate and terrain of the region, handpicking out the bad grapes, soaking them, the type of oak barrel, etc.  Of course, the knowledge of the winemaker and combination of flavors also plays a role.  If all of this comes together, in harmony, you may have yourself an award-winning wine.

    Award-winning dry wines are what you’ll find in our San Simeon collection.  Harvested in the coastal regions of Paso Robles and Monterey, these vineyards yield grapes with concentrated flavors and aromas.  The San Antonio Winery winemakers create varietals that have character and depth.  Rich with tropical fruits, ripe berries, and a fragrant nose, these award-winning dry wines are unmistakably unique.

    They’ve earned several wine awards and you can see for yourself here!  And better yet, you can try for yourself by purchasing San Simeon dry wines at your local retailers, in-store at our 3 winery locations or at our online store.

    You might be new to dry wines but that’s even better if you’re starting with San Simeon award-winning wines, they’ve been recognized for good reasons, ones you’ll be able to taste.

  • Jam Just Got Fancy

    Fruity jams taste great but fruit jams with wine are so much better!  It might even make your grandmother jealous. The Cabernet  Strawberry and Blueberry Sauce recipe made with our Cabernet Wine from San Simeon Wines modernizes the traditional jam and will excite your taste bud.  So let’s get sippin’ and mixin’.

     

    INGREDIENTS:

    One 8-ounce bag fresh strawberries

    6-ounces frozen blueberries (about 1 1/2 cups), unthawed

    1 cup Cabernet Wine

    1 cup granulated sugar

    1 tablespoon cinnamon, or to taste

    1 teaspoon ground cloves, or to taste

     

    DIRECTIONS:

    Combine all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a rolling boil, stirring intermittently. Make sure your pot has room for the sauce to at least triple in volume. The juices from the berries release and as the mixture boils rapidly, it will foam.

    Reduce heat to low and allow sauce to simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes or until reduced and thickened slightly, and most of the strawberries have burst.

    The sauce will thicken more as it cools. Transfer to heat-safe jars or glass containers with lids. Allow sauce to cool at room temperature before refrigerating. Sauce will keep airtight in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.

    We always need a little after work pleasure.  Dipping into this wine jam is a very pleasant moment. A synonym for this moment is Cabernet Wine.  Let your imagination run wild pairing this wine  jam with desserts or salty meals, while sipping on a glass of Cabernet.

    San Simeon Wines can be purchased at your local retailer or at San Antonio Winery.

  • Take A Walk Along The California Coast

    The great thing about wine is each bottle is like a teleporter; it ignites your senses and transports you to different places around the world. The climate of the region, minerals in the soil and richness of the land can be tasted through the grapes of every region.

    San Simeon epitomizes what makes the California Coast so stunning, and provides the highest quality and character for wines. Our Syrah features intense flavors of boysenberry, plum and pomegranate with a lengthy finish of vanilla and cinnamon. It’s unique and captivating, and will leave your mouth wondering where it just went.

    A trip to the Coast this time of year is spectacular, but it doesn’t have to cost you excessive gas fill-ups, road trip snacks and cheap hotel stays. If you want a quick getaway to the rugged shorelines, grab a bottle, or two, of San Simeon Syrah and happy travels!

  • Pair Your San Simeon Coastal Wine With Food From The Coastal Seas

    Seafood can be a bit intimidating to try out in the kitchen but it is oh so tasty with wine. With the abundance of food possibilities out there, there is something for everyone and we have a simple scallop idea that pairs perfectly with a glass of San Simeon Chardonnay that you can enjoy at home. It’s so good you might decide not to share and enjoy this one on your own!

    Our San Simeon Chardonnay is created in cool climates and captures tropical citrus fruit flavors. This tastes great with scallops and we’re going to top them over avocado and tortilla chips for easy but exquisite finger food.

    You’ll want to serve the scallops last, so let’s go through the first couple steps prior to getting to the scallops.

    Mash up a couple of avocados, squeeze in lime juice, and add salt. Scoop these on top of tortilla chips. On top of that, place some micro greens and chopped cilantro.

    San-Simeon-Wines_2

    For the scallops, pat them dry then season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you enjoy. We like cumin and paprika, and if you want some kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper.

    Add oil to a nonstick pan and make sure it gets nice and hot. When you place the scallops they should sizzle. You also want to give them space – don’t overcrowd the pan. Scallops don’t take long to cook – just two minutes on each side so they are seared to a golden brown and the sides are no longer transparent.

    Transfer atop the tostadas you created and pour yourself a chilled glass of San Simeon Chardonnay for all the hard work you did 😉

    Buon appetito!

    San Simeon Chardonnay and other varietals in the brand can be purchased at local retailers, San Antonio Winery in-store, or online at SanAntonioWinery.com. Learn more about our award-winning San Simeon brand by visiting SanSimeonWines.com and following our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
