Owner description: 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.

We visited mid week and several shops were closed, but what a great idea to have so many wineries located in one area. You can park your car and walk from one shop to another. Some shops represented several wineries so you can taste a variety of wines in one location. The host was very knowledgeable and helpful.

I just experienced the "Wine-Ghetto" in Lompoc,CA. with mixed reviews. The wines I tasted were very good to excellent. The parking is easy and you won't need to relocate to experience the ghetto. I tasted at six various store fronts- everything from pinots to chards. I also purchaced eight bottles of wine.
My dissappoint is a tasting fee of $10 per person. Most areas of California that I have been will waive this fee if you buy a bottle or two. Not here. This charge bumped up the cost of the wines by $50 bucks and which would be better used elsewhere. OBTW-Los Olivos waived the fee.

visit La Vie Vineyard 308 N 9th ST Unit D. We have 2-4-1 tasting coupon from the internet. Price is $10 for 7 samples. This wine tasting room is located in the “getto” , a friendly name for this industrial park of tiny wine tasting rooms. The service was good. The server was friendly and informative. The wines were okay. The ambience is zero. The pressure was low. This was our first time at La Vie Vineyard and our second time to the Getto. We have decided that give all the choices of places to taste wine, we are willing to miss out on those represented here, as the place in just not that pleasant to visit.

While the ghetto is in an industrial park in Lompoc, it does have a certain charm of its own. There are at least a dozen tasting rooms in the ghetto and they are all good. My favorites are Longoria (frankly the best wines in Santa Barbara County) and Stolpman.
