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. « less

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

We have wine tasted all over the region (Santa Ynez, Edna Valley, Paso, etc.). We had heard about the wine ghetto and decided to give it a shot. What a pleasant surprise. From the outside it does not look like much just your typical small industrial park. However, once inside each to the rooms they all have their own flavor.... More

Another great visit ! We have been going to the wine ghetto for many years, when it began. Now there are many tasting rooms. If you are short on time you can sample several types of wineries in short period of time. We go like on a Thursday so it's not crowded. We meet lots of interesting people, wine makers.... More

Always a delight to spend time with winemakers and their wines. Wish we could go more often. This visit was to the newly opened LaMontagne tasting room. Check out Kimberly Smith's Pinot Noir made with fruit from the Huber Vineyard. First class!

Appropriately named! Not a lot of ambience, but efficiently set up for multiple tastings in a small area. Reasonably priced, good value for money spent.

A friend knowledgeable in wines recommended this place. Drove over with some friends while staying in Solvang. At first we couldn't figure it out. It's an industrial business park. You just walk around to the different spots. Ended up having a great time and enjoyed all the wines. Only went to four which means we will return. Highly recommended for... More

We did not check out all the various wineries represented at the Wine Ghetto, because I wanted to sample the Pinot Gris that FGC bottled. Unfortunately, they were not pouring their Pinot Gris this month. We tried their "Bubbly Flight", which was OK, but not transcendant. I bought a bottle of the PG, and sampled it later. It was quite... More

I loved the idea of being able to walk a small area and be able to taste wines from so many different wineries. Wines ranged from "ok" to "delicious" and the price points all spanned the same type of spectrum. If you go, stay local, take a taxi or get a designated driver - you'll need it!

Flying Goat wine tasting room was great and it was all because of Danielle who worked there and was so helpful and fun. We did a split of the two different types of wines which are sparkling and reds, We ended up buying their Goat Bubbles rose champagne and their Pinot Gris, She suggested we go to lunch in Buellton...

What a great idea. A number of excellent wineries represented in a 2- or 3-block area. The opportunity to sample the bottlings of many top wineries that normally require appointments to visit is much appreciated. I wish Oregon's wineries would do something similar. We had planned to stop at 5 or 6 tasting rooms, but our first stop was so... More
