Weather Report March 22, 2023

A change of seasons arrived on the Central Coast this winter. We have experienced extreme weather, including hail in Lompoc and snowfall in nearby communities. Lompoc has received some of the highest levels of rainfall with 31.27 inches recorded for the 2023 year on March 22.* This is twice Lompoc's average rainfall per year.

The county is now officially out of a drought. There has been widespread erosion in vineyards but overall the recent precipitation bodes well for the Central Coast growing season ahead. Groundwater has been replenished and salts have been leached from the soils. (Salts can be toxic to vines and cause deficiencies of micronutrients.)

Come visit us and enjoy the verdant hills and valleys of the Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley AVAs. Our Tasting Room is open Thursday-Monday 11am-4pm for your convenience, with or without a reservation. 

*Each Water Year runs from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31 and is designated by the calendar year in which it ends.
