The Lompoc Wine Ghetto is a loose collection of wineries, including many production facilities. This unique two-block industrial complex has been almost completely taken over by the wine industry. Its seventeen tasting rooms represent more than 20 local brands. You won't find great estates with rolling hills here, nor opulent tasting rooms with soaring ceilings. What you will find is world-class wine, presented in a laid back atmosphere. Often the tasting rooms are inside production facilities, so don't be surprised if the person doing the pouring is also the person that made it. Come spend a weekend with us tasting exceptional wines in this very non-traditional setting. If great wine is what you seek, come pound the pavement for a while and discover the treasures of the Lompoc Wine Ghetto.

The Lompoc Wine Ghetto is located on the outskirts of the city of Lompoc in an industrial warehouse park. Lots of very good wineries specializing in grapes grown in the Santa Rita Hills. Pali, Tyler, Fiddlehead and Zotovich are some of my favorites. No problem...More

We were anxious to taste the pinots of the Santa Rita Hills and the Lompoc Wine Ghetto had it all in one location. This is an industrial area with quite a few very basic tasting rooms. We went to the "Taste of Santa Rita Hills,"...More

This is a great idea, many wineries all in one area. My complaint is the cost. Wineries in Lodi area will waive your tasting fee if you buy a bottle. One would only waive if you bought 3 bottles. Tasting fees need to be more...More

As you drive north on Highway 1 into Lompoc, the first sign you see directs you to the Wine Ghetto. The Ghetto = at least a dozen wineries in a warehouse-type area. Some have tasting rooms with regular hours; some don't and may require an...More

The area, especially MONTEMAR, is a welcoming, inviting one. Great for wine tasting and reasonable bottle purchases. Great crew at Montemar, especially Michele

I guess use Uber or a cab. We've always had a vehicle. You definitely don't need a vehicle once you get to the Wine Ghetto. We would advise sharing tastings, that way you can taste in more rooms. Many to choose from. Most... More
