Engage in the 'tasting' then sip your wine in the botanical gardens to the strains of our strolling musicians; talk with the local artists of the mixed media show featuring oils, watercolors, photography, and garden sculpture . Stroll the gardens with docents telling you tales of the history of the historic hacienda. Or just sit, take a deep breath and inhale the garden perfume.

Exploring pur cultural heritage layers unearths the changes each Era has brought to one small Mexican Rancho. From Alta California as we move into the early 19th Century our focus narrows to an artistic and social mecca--a single Hacienda built on what was once Rancho land designed by one of Edison’s Three Tenors. The perfect acoustics of Jose Mojica’s Music Salon enhances our chamber music, and the 1930-40's brought the room Anita Loos' eclectic salons filled with the creative, intellectual and famous people from around the world; until Lyle Wheeler (David Selznick's Art Director) made the hacienda his home. The over 600 films produced by these "Old Hollywood" Legends are screened along with those of their friends in our 50-seat theater.
