For a place the sip wine and drink in the views this place cannot be beat. The staff was friendly, the wine was good, and the property is the star. Worth a visit even if you're only a casual wine drinker. They have something for all palates.

We were coming back from exploring a waterfalls and saw this sign for "12 Spies Winery". I am always curious about names of things and we were off to get an answer. I was thinking that maybe some world class spies retired and decided to start a winery - why not? We followed the trail and finally arrived. It is... More

Traffic was bad on our way home from Labor Day weekend. We came upon this winery and decided to stop instead of sitting in traffic and are so glad that we did! Our server Donna and owners Lisa and Mike were delightful, down to earth, knowledgeable, and we truly enjoyed their local craft wines.

This is our second visit to the winery. The first visit was crowded so we did not stay long but thought it was a cute place. This time we stayed longer and spoke to the owner most of our visit. The tastings are $1.00 per pour which makes it nice because you are not stuck with a "canned" tasting and... More

Found them while out riding, spent the afternoon sipping and tasting several varietals and getting to know the owners! So enjoyed the wine and company- have them send me a case all along to Florida and everytime we are up in that area, we stop in and say hello!

This winery is in a beautiful setting with a large covered patio for picnics. We had a family reunion picnic there and could not have had a better time. We used the patio for a picnic, then went into the tasting room to sample (and buy!) some of their great wines. Played frisbee and other games in their large field... More

Visited while vacationing in Clayton, GA. We sampled three wines each and and bought a bottle of their brand 12 Spies Chardonnay. We also had a glass out on their deck where we enjoyed decent summer temps with low humidity. The clerk inside that assisted us was very knowledgeable and friendly. The owner was showing two ladies the facilities for... More
