Overview
More
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.

First visit but we expect to come back often. Very cool to have so many tasting rooms within a five-minute walk of each other.

The Ghetto has approximately 23 different wineries represented, all artisan produced, within walking distance of each other. Think craft beer for wine. We visited 3 different artisans and were not disappointed! Our first stop was Artisan Uprising. Enjoyed the wine and our host was awesome....More

Love the wine ghetto! Just wish they had some places to grab some food in the ghetto! Would have given it 5 stars then!

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

With all the wineries in the area it's easy to miss this. But the Lompoc wine ghetto should not be overlooked. I've tried probably a dozen of the wineries there. Some are better than others.But the benefit of this place is you can try two...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

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
