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.

The wine ghetto is not the only place to taste with wineries in the Santa Rita Hills area, in fact I highly recommend stepping outside the ghetto. Inside the ghetto you'll find some very well marketed wines in a very small area. The wines are good, some award winning, but you're doing yourself a disservice to stay in the ghetto.... More

Very nice to have so many tasting rooms clustered together in a small industrial park. Quite a variety in terms of style and quality but seemed to feature great customer service without a lot of snotty 'wine country' attitude. Stool an, flying goat and ample is were standouts in terms of their wines.

Well it took some time to find this place. All these tasting rooms are in a warehouse area. Tasted several wines but nothing stood out. There are server all tasting rooms, so maybe we didn't get to the good ones.

The ghetto offers visitors the opportunity to taste many wines of the valley that maybe aren't big enough or have their own onsite tasting room, or source grapes from different vineyards. You can drive there (or if you are going to do some serious tasting take a taxi) since it is right there in Lompoc. There are some excellent wines... More

This is a pretty cool spot. It is a group of industrial buildings with about 19 wine tasting rooms. All of the people we meet were very nice and helpful. Some nice wines here. You can print out a map on line and make a nice day of it. $10 a tasting, unless you buy a bottle. We stopped at... More

I've done a lot of California wine tasting. When a friend told me about the Wine Ghetto, I was intrigued. While I love visiting the actual vineyards and sunny hillsides, someone always has to take a turn as designated driver. We booked a room at O'Cairns Inn & Suites, which is walking distance to the ghetto. We went to three... More

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....
