12EC Vineyard is located 30 miles north-west of Paso Robles in the San Antonio Valley AVA. We're part of the Jolon Road Wine Corridor, the new artisan wine trail in Southern Monterey County. With hot days, cool nights and calcareous soil, this is the perfect setting for Cabernet Sauvignon. Our vines are twenty years old as of June 2021. We farm sustainably, are chemeical-free and keep our yield low. We hand-harvest with the goal of producing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes.
