La Arboleda is home to over two-hundred olive trees and dozens of English walnut trees. The climate is ideal for long growing season with warm days and long cool foggy nights. Each of the trees has been hand selected to thrive in the STA. Rita Hills micro climate.
Our olive trees were planted to produce the highest quality of cured table olives. The following varietals have been planted and range from 2-12 years of age.
Bella Di Cidarino
Nocellara del Belice
Our old English Walnut trees are the gentle giants of the estate. Each of the trees has been here between 30-50 years. Walnut trees have been a symbol of luck for weddings for hundreds of years and we admire the character and distinction that they add to our beautiful venue.

La Arboleda's mission is to provide an environment where rustic old world romance meets California wine country culture. As one of Santa Barbara County's premier wedding venues, La Arboleda offers a private orchard that is the ideal location for your celebrations.
The wedding day is one of the most anticipated days of a person's life. Everyone wants it to be perfect-from the dress to the food to the venue. In Santa Barbara County very few venues offer the picturesque landscape and wedding week necessities that La Arboleda provides. La Arboleda sits on acres of walnut and olive trees, featuring entertainment pavilions, a bar and a stage that surround an rustic dining pavilion enclosed by glass french doors. The bunk house is perfect for groomsmen to enjoy themselves while they prepare for the wedding day, and the wheelhouse is ideal for brides and bridesmaids to pamper themselves while they await the ceremony. The indoor/outdoor bar and kitchen are excellent options for any season and make catering simple by offering prep areas as well as walk in cooler and outdoor kitchen access.
The venue is completely landscaped with a sustainable water system that flows from the water wheel at the wheelhouse to the waterfall at the bunk house house and irrigates the entire property.
The entire venue has been created with mother nature in mind. No bride wants to be left trudging through the mud and rain in her wedding shoes. The venue is complete with paved walkways and stained concrete flooring in the indoor/outdoor structures and has the ability to enclose all trellised areas. This means that even rainy day weddings can be enjoyed beneath the covering of our seasonal trellis protective raincovers. Restrooms are tucked away behind the bar and can accommodate 3 men’s room guests and 3 women’s room guests at a time. Parking is provided for up to 10 guest cars and 20 staff cars. Hotels for guests are located within 10 miles of the venue. Shuttle services are required for parties over 40 guests or any event serving alcohol. Market lighting is provided along the trellised areas and each of the walnut trees is fully lit for events. Multiple ceremony locations are available depending upon wedding size. The venue sits in the center of STA Rita Hills and beautiful ceremony backdrops are abundant in every location. La Arboleda truly feels like the perfect escape for an unforgettable wedding weekend.
