Angeleno Wine Company opened a wine production facility and tasting room on Spring Street in Chinatown in 2018. It will be the first such winery within the city of Los Angeles in more than a century. The last urban winery to open in Los Angeles was San Antonio Winery, that still operates today and opened back in 1917. Most of the grapes for the new winery will be grown in Agua Dulce, a historic winegrowing region in greater Los Angeles.
Several varietals will be offered including a Pinot Noir from Rio Del Mar Vineyard just east of Santa Cruz. This vineyard is one of the closest, if not the closest vineyard to the coast of California, only three-quarters of a mile from the coast.
