12EC Vineyard is located 30 miles north-west of Paso Robles in the San Antonio Valley AVA on the Jolon Road Wine Corridor. With hot days, cool nights and calcareous soil, our twenty-two year old Cabernet Sauvignon vines are farmed free of chemicals producing high quality wine grapes. Our three year old Sagrantinp vines will produce their first grapes in 2024 making 12EC one of only a few vineyards in California to grow this robust Italian varietal. 12EC Winery's production is small so we can do things bigger wineries can’t. We take chances, we’re inventive and make fanciful wines that are unique, Our wines are hand-crafted from start to finish and different every year, a product of the grapes available, weather and winemaker choices over the two year journey from crush to glass. They Arte available for purchase online, at our winery and in markets and wine bars in Paso Robles and Palm Springs.
