    Harmony Cellars offers award-winning wines and picturesque views of the surrounding coastal countryside. Established in 1989, owners Chuck and Kim Mulligan built their boutique winery to reflect the serene and unpretentious beauty of Harmony—Population 18.

    Winemaking in the tiny town of Harmony is not new, and the tradition harks back to the late 1800s. Kim Mulligan’s great-grandfather, Giacomo Barlogio, was a founder of the old creamery cooperative in “downtown” Harmony and used to make homemade wine in his basement. Today the winery sits on a part of Giacomo’s original land holdings; land that’s been in Kim’s family for four generations. As a tribute to Kim’s heritage, Harmony Cellars produces a special reserve wine labeled “Grandpa Barlogio Zinfandel” that is available only in the Harmony tasting room.

    From a buttery Chardonnay to a crisp Riesling, spicy Zinfandel to a voluptuous Cabernet, Chuck strives to make something for every palate and even does a Port. He likes experimenting with different varieties and has plans to offer limited production wines like Sangiovese, Tannat.

    2019 marks Harmony Cellars' 30th Anniversary. Join the Mulligan Family in celebrating this milestone occasion--special events (open to all) will be calendared throughout the year.
