12 Spies Vineyards

12 Spies Vineyards is a 21 or older property

The vineyard’s name came from the Bible and tells the story of Moses sending 12 spies to investigate the Promised Land. While there, they discovered grapes so large that it took 2 men just to carry one cluster.  They brought them back on a staff along with figs and other fruit to show off their bounty.
Successful in the corporate world, Mike Brown chose to travel down a new path in life.  His love of farming was the only thing planned in the beginning. After planting and growing grapes for a few years, the decision to build a winery and tasting room was made.  12 Spies was opened in August 2012.
We offer a large menu of wines which varies from 10-16 varietals. From Dry Reds and Whites, to semi sweet and sweet, something offered for all palates. All wines are vinted and bottled here on site.
