Richard Longoria Wines Teams Up with Tesla Motors


Tesla Destination Charging now offered as new amenity for guests

Longoria WinesJuly 26, 2016 – The Longoria Winery Tasting Room located at 415 E. Chestnut in Lompoc CA has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination  Charging. Tesla High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour, just the right amount of time to enjoy a tasting flight of Longoria wines. “Our winery tasting room is the first and only commercial business in Lompoc to offer Tesla Destination Charging,” explains owner and winemaker Richard Longoria.

Richard Longoria Wines joins a rapidly growing network of recreational sites in Tesla’s Destination Charging Program. Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world to offer High Power Connectors as an amenity for visitors, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants. Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.

“Our winery is constantly finding new ways to heighten our guests’ experience. By combining leading- edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience during their stay,” says Rick Longoria.

The Longoria Winery and Tasting Room and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and were recently GPS located on Model S’ navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. Tesla owners are now able to use the Model S 17” touchscreen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
