Give Food – Get Wine

Harmony Cellars Winery is planning a month long food drive to benefit the San Luis Obispo Food Bank. Wine tasters are encouraged to bring in two non-perishable food items to Harmony’s tasting room between January 15 and February 15, 2011. In exchange, donors will receive a complimentary wine tasting. All food items collected in the tasting room will be donated to the local Food Bank in mid February.

Approximately 40,000 local residents either go hungry on a regular basis or don't know when or where they'll get their next meal, according to the San Luis Obispo Food Bank. While Food Banks experience an increase in donations over the holidays, contributions drop off in January. A regular volunteer at Loaves & Fishes (an agency partner of the SLO Food Bank), Harmony Cellars co-owner Kim Mulligan has experienced this need first-hand. “Hunger is a year-round problem. We need and appreciate food donations throughout the year, but especially after the holidays,” says Kim.

Harmony Cellars’ tasting room is located just off Highway 1 in the town of Harmony. The tasting room is open daily 10am – 5pm. Food donations will be welcomed January 15 – February 15, 2011. 3255 Harmony Valley Road. 805.927.1625.



Harmony Cellars Description

Nestled in the hills overlooking the quaint, artisan town of Harmony, just off Highway 1, Harmony Cellars has the unique advantage as the only winery in town.
Of course the town is one of the smallest towns in California with just 18 residents. In 1872 this dairy settlement was established providing cheese and milk to the surrounding ranches. William Randolph Hearst was a familiar face as he stopped off for fresh dairy products on his way to his ranch. After being abandoned for some years the town was revitalized in 1972. Today there are a few art studios and shops but it is the winery on the hill that gets a lot of attention.

Private Tastings available for large groups

The tasting room sits out in front of the winery in an attractive wood sided building with a remarkable view of the coastal countryside. Inside is a well stocked gift shop with glassware, wine accessories, gourmet food items, olive oils, baskets, purses, and the like. Its rock floor and granite countertop provides a rustic elegance to the place. Outside is a lovely patio with tables and chairs and a gazebo for cover as well as a secondary tasting counter. 
Winemaking in Harmony is not new and the tradition harks back to the late 1800s.  The owner s Chuck and Kim Mulligan started the winery in 1989. Kim's great-grandfather, Giacomo Barloggio, a founder of the old creamery cooperative in "downtown" Harmony, used to make homemade wine in his basement.  Today's winery sits on a part of Giacomo's original land holdings; land that's been in Kim's family for four generations. 
Winemaker Chuck Mulligan makes all Harmony wines in his redwood winery. Each varietal is distinctly different and crafted to highlight the individuality of the lush, ripe fruit. Popular Harmony wines include: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, White Riesling, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, a Bordeaux blend, and a Port.

Amazing wines, friendly staff and breathtaking views of the countryside make you feel as though you're on vacation. A 'must stop' for wine tasting & a picnic. The chard is the best!

Very, very friendly tasting room pourer. It's also in a really neat location with a wood building to taste in, it seems very farmy and fits its location well. The wines are pretty decent, though they are made from a host of different vineyards. My favorite two were the 'Harmonie', a perfect white for summer afternoons, and the '03 Aria, the winemaker's hearty red blend.
