Longoria Wines was established in 1982 by Rick and Diana Longoria. Rick is one of the pioneers of the Santa Barbara County wine region, having been involved with local wine production since 1976. In 1998 Rick planted his first estate vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills, a 10 acre site named Fe Ciega which is planted to 9 acres of Pinot Noir and 1 acre of Chardonnay. Also that year he moved his wine production facility to the city of Lompoc, becoming the first commercial winery there. Rick and Diana also established their tasting room in downtown Los Olivos in 1998.
The production of Longoria Wines remains very small with an average of 3,000 cases annually. This small production allows Rick to personally handcraft every wine to a very high standard year after year.
In addition to the Tasting Room in Los Olivos (open daily, 11am – 4:30pm), you are also invited to visit the Longoria Winery in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto at 1700 Industrial Way, Unit A, Lompoc (open Friday, Saturday & Sunday only, 11am – 4:30 pm).
