We focus our winemaking on vineyard designated Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Goat Bubbles sparkling wine with five expressions: Rosé, Crémant, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs and Brut Cuvée. Our wines are authentic, easy, approachable and perfectly balanced to pair with food.

We don’t own any vineyards but after 35+ years in the business, winemaker Norm Yost has developed close working relationships with quality growers. We’ve carefully chosen our vineyards to represent different terroir with fruit that offers a wide range of textures and flavors.

Norm has been making wine for over 35 vintages and has a particular passion for Pinot Noir. In 2000, he launched his own label, Flying Goat Cellars, specializing in vineyard designated Pinots from California’s Central Coast. Norm shared his passion with Kate Griffith by courting her with his first release of Goat Bubbles in 2006. We don’t know if it was the bubbles or the winemaker’s charm but it culminated in a marriage and a family of wines.

Now Flying Goat Cellars produces about 2,500 cases a year and includes three labels: Flying Goat, Goat Bubbles and YNOT. Flying Goat focuses on vineyard designated Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris. Goat Bubbles offers five vineyard designated sparkling wines: Rosé, Crémant, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs and Brut Cuvée. YNOT is Pinot Noir blended from the finest of Santa Barbara County vineyards.

  • Located in the Lompoc Wine ghetto, this eccentric place offering delicious California sparkling that are made fantastically. Their single Vineyard Pinot Noirs are also very nicely done, not overtly...

  • Very nice intimate tasting room. The owners were very educated and passionate about their wines.
  • We appeared on a Thursday. The owner was attentive and shared good wines. It is definitely a gem to experience off the beaten paths of other wineries within Santa Barbara area. We left with a case shipping. Decor is cute. Love the Flying Goat labels.
