Los Olivos offers a slice of upscale Americana with art galleries, an art museum, boutiques, more than a dozen wine tasting rooms, a world-class inn and a flagpole in the center of the town.

: The theatre has always been a place in which the hopes and dreams of the culture reside.Where our aspirations about the possible, but as yet unachieved, can be relished and fostered. This is particularly true of a conservatory theatre. It is a sanctuary, a safe habitat, for our dreams and potentials. A Conservatory is a place in which the fledgling are protected and nurtured for their growth. A Conservatory can also be the repository of the aspirations and values of a culture,or many cultures – a place in which new hybrids are cultivated, nourished and brought to fruition. A Conservatory is always a place of energy and potential, intensity and growth, structure and creativity. That is the kind of place PCPA is, and dreams of being.We dream of the theatre establishing its place in the life of the community as a center in which we gather to have a public discourse on that which binds us together and separates us; about what is beautiful, funny, frightening and bold in us.

:Since missionaries planted the first grapes here in the early 19th century, through Prohibition to the “modern” era of viticulture that began in the 1960s, Santa Barbara County winemakers have combined traditional, handmade techniques with the latest cutting- edge innovations.The region is known especially for its outstanding chardonnay, pinot noir and syrah, but also produces superior riesling, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, viognier and many other varietals in more than 70 vineyards. The majority are small operations run by individuals or families.In Santa Barbara County, Santa Ynez Valley is one of three distinct American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), also known as wine appellations—the other two are Santa Maria Valley and Santa (Sta.) Rita Hills—together comprising more than 21,000 acres of vineyards producing more than a million cases of wine annually. The regions east-west orientation of the coastal mountains forms valleys opening directly to the Pacific Ocean. This unique topography allows the flow of fog and sea breezes to shape distinct microclimates, perfect for the cultivation of classic grape varietals resulting in world-class wines.
