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.

My visit to the Ghetto was a part of my trip to Paso Robles. I thought I'd take a detour and check it out. I was surprised to find that there were quite a few tasting rooms spread over several industrial buildings and a visit which was supposed to consist of a couple of hours of tasting actually took longer....

From the outside you would have no idea that there were so many cozy, fun and beautiful tasting rooms all in one convenient location. Plus they serve great wine. We visited 3 tasting rooms and were pleased with all 3. If you're looking for something fun to do for a date or a girls weekend I would highly recommend it.

What could be bad? An industrial park of winery tasting rooms! Unfortunately for me most of the tasting rooms were closed the day I visited but I got to try Flying Goat so I was happy.

It is not fancy, just warehouse type places with lots of selections. Great wine with lots of variety. Friendly folks are dedicated to wine. Have tasted at multiple places and they are all good. Have been wine club members at multiple places. Enjoy!

Full disclaimer: I came here on a Monday for the first time, knowing full well that only a few tasting rooms would be open. All was good because the folks here are eager to please and some great boutique wines. Visited Montemar and Flying Goat. Next time I'll come on a weekend so I visit the rest.

Doesn't look like much when you pull up, but once you go inside the first tasting room, you are hooked. For a fee, you can taste various wines from local wineries. The best part, is you don't have to drive to go to the next one. I"m guessing there are a dozen tasting rooms in a one block radius. Montemar... More

This is a Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir lovers amusement park. You can park and walk to a variety of wineries. Since most of them make the wine in the Ghetto, you can see the operation and even do some barrel tasting if you are nice. Must stop places: Samsara, Stolpman and Pali.

First time at the Lompoc Wine Ghetto. My wife and I really enjoyed it. Tried four tasting rooms Saturday and one on Sunday. We highly recommend it. Will be back to try more. We would recommend sharing tastings and you can cover more tasting rooms without having too much to drink.

We went for a girls weekend to do some wine tasting and were not disappointed! It definitely doesn't look very classy from the outside, but every winery has their own place organized and designed how they like. Some are very cute! Would never know from the front that you're walking into a cute little tasting room. Wineries were hit or... More

Housed in an industrial park, the wine ghetto has about 30+ wine tasting rooms. All located within 3 blocks of each other, it allows a person to sample as much as they wish without driving all over creation. Several excellent wines to taste.
