Lompoc's Wine Ghetto & Wine Trail
Lompoc's Wine Ghetto is an assemblage of small wine production and tasting facilities located in the Sobhani Industrial Park. At first glance, you might miss it, as it is simply a collection of steel industrial buildings - nothing fancy. Once you enter however, nineteen (and counting!) tasting rooms are at your disposal, offering some of the finest wines the California Central Coast has to offer. The "Ghetto" is located off of North Seventh Street on Chestnut Court. Come explore and enjoy the uniqueness of these local wines. Be sure to visit often - new tasting opportunities are always being added!
