This week we will have a lot to write about our trip to Lompoc, its wine trail, the wine Ghetto,and some outstanding restaurants we visited on our way up Highway one to the Central Coast.
In Lompoc the Wine Ghetto is tailor made for people who enjoy wine tasting. In this industrial area of Lompoc twenty eight local wineries have established tasting rooms for the visitor most showing the wines of three adjacent highly regarded appellations.
We visited Flying Goat Cellars, located at the Ghetto, and met co-owner Kate Griffith, who with her husband Norman Yost, owner and winemaker, produce some outstanding Pinot Noirs and five different sparkling wines as well.
We tasted four Pinot Noirs, all from different AVAs under the Flying Goat label. A second label is YNOT which is designed as a restaurant pour Pinot Noir.
Flying Goat Cellars is located at 1520 E Chestnut Court in Lompoc and open Thursday thru Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Telephone 805 736-9032.
