SUPPORTING WINE INDUSTRY
One industry that has grown since 1998 is the wine industry. We now have over twenty wineries and twenty-three tasting rooms. We are bringing people to Lompoc to taste wine and buy wine. Roughly 80% of those people who come to the Ghetto to taste wine are from Southern California. Along with that we have people that come from foreign countries to taste and buy wine. There is a lot of wine that is shipped to foreign countries from Lompoc. The wine industry creates a lot jobs for Lompoc and also supports good business in Lompoc.
