This is a collection of tasting rooms of the local wineries, distributed in a clutch of industrial buildings. About a half of them are closed ("by appointment only" - which I suspect does not happen very often). The wines and wineries are middling to mediocre,...More

If you don't want to drive all over town to do tastings this is a great place to taste a lot of wines all at once. Some of the smaller winery's that don't have a tasting room this would be your only option.,

The wine ghetto in Lompoc has the best wines available on the central coast all in walking distance of each other. I woukd recommend Piedressasi, Palmina, or Longoria who is close to the wine ghetto. You will have a great time here!!

This is a great way to taste wine. You just park your car and you can walk to at least 14 wineries. There are some excellent wineries in the Ghetto. Check out Moretti's and La Montagne.

Went wine tasting at the Ghetto and had a great experience. Lots of choices and wineries and the wines were great as well as the people. Only drawback is that not all of the wineries are open during the week. Don't know about the weekend.

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

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
