Harmony Cellars is in the Paso Robles wine region but it is so far west you need to travel to end of Highway 46 West to Highway 1. The winery is located in the tiny town of Harmony, population 18.

The best thing about Harmony Cellars is its location at the top of a hill. The view here is very spectacular. There are picnic tables and an arbor where one can sit and enjoy the view of the countryside below. It is a very peaceful setting on a warm day and the ideal spot for a picnic lunch with a glass of chilled white wine.
Harmony Cellars does not have any vineyards to view. All the grapes come from the inland areas of Paso Robles. The winery offers tastings of all of its wines for a tasting fee of $3.00. The prices of the wine range from around $10 to $36. The best of the wines we tasted was the Chardonnay. The rest were nice wines but nothing we wanted to purchase. The tasting room has lots of wine related merchandise for sale and it is fun to browse around.

After visiting Harmony Cellars we retraced our path on Highway 1 and headed north to the ocean town of Cambria. The town of Cambria has many interesting boutique shops and one can easily spend half a day here. As far as eating there are lots places in Cambria or you can have a wonderful lunch overlooking the ocean on the deck of the Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill, which is just on the outskirts of Cambria.

If you are spending a few days in the Paso Robles wine regions, this day trip is a one way to cool off when the days are hot inland.
