Heart of Trees

Romance is alive on Highway 46 between Cambria and the Paso Robles wine country. Rooted on a hill, overlooking a vineyard, a grouping of trees is arranged in the shape of a heart. Express your love in a big way with this larger than life symbol of your adoration. The heart of trees provides a very fun and creative way to propose and is the perfect complement to a day of wine tasting and picnicking around the Paso Robles wineries.

If you’re looking to arrange a picnic basket to take to your proposal spot, we have some recommendations. Grab some wine from Fermentations, one of Cambria’s premier wine shops on Burton Drive, right next to our Cambria hotel, the Burton Inn. Mosey on down to Main Street, which is also just a short stroll from the Burton Inn, and score some delicious cheese and lunch goodies from Indigo Moon Cafe. Put together your picnic basket and head south on Highway 1. You’ll see signs for Highway 46. Make the left turn toward Paso Robles and keep your eye out for the magical spot where you’ll propose.

Alternatively, if you’d like to forego the picnic, you can just visit the tasting room where the heart of trees is located! The heart of trees is at Heart Hill Vineyard, which is part of Niner Wine Estates. The vineyard is very aptly named, I’d say. The address is 2400 Highway 46 West, Paso Robles, California 93446. One of the most exciting things is that they have brand new and gorgeous facilities. You might even be able to have your wedding there as well. That would be quite romantic. Be sure to check out their website for a ton of really great information about events, happenings, and updates.

Here is a very short video that captures the vineyard estate near our Cambria hotel where you can find your ideal proposal location.

…and then start one of the most memorable walks of your life.A Few Things to Consider for your Cambria ProposalCambria weather can be cooler than you might expect. While it is a California coastal town, Cambria is quite a bit colder and breezier than some of the popular hot spots in southern California. You’ll want to make sure the walk is memorable for all the right reasons. Certainly, being frozen to the bone shouldn’t be a highlight. With that in mind, make sure you’re equipped with a jacket and perhaps a cozy blanket to cuddle up in together.

You’ll likely want to celebrate with a great dinner and bubbly afterward. If you’re planning to travel to Cambria over the weekend, be sure to make reservations. The popular Cambria restaurants with a romantic flare tend to fill up pretty fast. The Black Cat, Robin’s, and Madeline’s offer a great ambiance for a special occasion after your Cambria proposal at Fiscalini Ranch.
