Open: Year Round

About Us:

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 and Lisa chose to travel down a new path in life. With a little encouragement and support from friends and family they chose the road to the vineyard. Their new love 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. The gift shop and tasting room were opened August of 2012. The "Vino Veranda"  looking out to the spectacular western mountains and sunsets is availble. Grab a glass of your favorite 12 Spies wine, and enjoy the view!
