Alisal Hosts a Wine-Filled Weekend in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto

From October 25 to 27, Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort will provide a getaway into the legendary Lompoc Wine Ghetto, one of the most concentrated pockets of winemaking in California’s Santa Ynez region. The resort’s first Alisal Wine Ghetto Weekend—priced at $1,695 per couple for accommodations, meals, and tastings—will kick off Friday evening with a gourmet barbecue before Saturday’s all-day wine-and-food immersion in the Wine Ghetto.

Saturday will begin with breakfast in the property’s dining room. The group will then go to Lompoc for the winemakers’ harvest party, where they can participate in wine-barrel tastings, go on production tours, and crush grapes while enjoying food and live music. Saturday evening’s dinner, prepared by Alisal’s executive chef, Pascal Godé, will include wine pairings chosen by the winemakers from Palmina, Zotovich Cellars, Longoria, and Samsara. The weekend will conclude with a Sunday brunch. (805.688.6411, www.alisal.com)
