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 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.

Went to Fiddlehead Winery there - there are probably twenty or thirty small wineries with tasting rooms in this industrial park. No atmosphere at all, if you are used to Northern California wineries. Most wineries there seemed to be small, operations with limited production. The wines I tasted were great, but not priced for someone who views wine as a... More

The location is not romantic, it is behind a Home Depot, but the wines are excellent. Lots of wonderful little wine tasting rooms with in a 2 block area.

Small producers share their wines. Some of our favorites...Palmina, Stolpman, Fiddlehead...lots of choices here. Make a day of it with a picnic using one of the tables in the parking lot or over at the River park a couple blocks away.

Lompoc wine ghetto is great for visitors who want to taste great variety of wines from our valley. Located in industrial part of town but great because no need to travel in car. Many different wineries to choose from within walking distance. Each one wit& their own personalities inside. Highly recommend. Located off of 7th ave. & Chestnut

We stopped in and spent some time at the Arcadian & Bratcher tasting room. Service was excellent and atmosphere very nice. No complaints but for the lack of beauty and exploration you might enjoy at the winery - for which you gain the opportunity of much improved logistics to the other tasting rooms. Highly recommended!

Heard about the ghetto from some of the wineries we visited. What a concept....! According to the wine expert in our family (not me...the "better half") there were some really good wines available for tasting & purchase. This concept saved many miles driving to different wineries. Come to find out, some of the establishments are wineries/blenders not growers---which is fine... More

We suggest you skip the Palmina Tasting room and spend your time at other tasting rooms in the Ghetto and elsewhere in the Lompoc and Santa Ynez Valley. Palmina has a wide variety of Italian varietals, some that we like and some that we don't like. The tasting room is a hit or miss experience. Occasionally there is good customer... More
