Lompoc, CA (September 8, 2021) – All are invited to join a 21st birthday celebration for Flying Goat Cellars on Saturday, September 18, from 1-4pm at the Tasting Room in Lompoc. Founded in 2000, Flying Goat Cellars is now legally old enough to drink wine! Join in the merriment with $10 tastings for both flights (Pinot and sparkling), gift raffles and Grassy Bar Oysters (think Bubbles!) Other tasty snacks will be paired with the wines, as well. Flying Goat Cellars Tasting Room is located at 1520 E. Chestnut Court in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto.
2021 marks Flying Goat Cellars’ 21st year in business as a leader in age-worthy wines. This is the 22nd vintage for Flying Goat Pinot Noirs and the 17th vintage for Goat Bubbles. This is also Winemaker Norm Yost’s 42nd harvest because he worked one harvest in the northern hemisphere (U.S.) and one harvest in the southern hemisphere (Australia) in 1990, thus two harvests in one year. Yost became an industry leader when he launched the first sparkling wine program in Santa Barbara County in 2005 with Goat Bubbles. A short chronology of Flying Goat history is available at https://flyinggoatcellars.com/pages/our-history.
