Lompoc is just a hop, skip and a jump from Santa Barbara and focuses on the cooler climate pinot noir and chardonnay from the Santa Rita Hills. Although down the road you can get the full vineyard experience, most of my time is spent in the “ghetto” the “wine ghetto” that is! The industrial park behind the home depot does not disappoint!
My Favorite Wineries
Where I stay – O’Cairns Inn – not the nicest but super easy and walkable to both wine areas!
