We're Vincent & Steven, the owners of 12EC Vineyard and Winery. We take our name from Vincent's grandfather, Emil Ciriello who made wine in the cellar of his home on 12 June Street. 12EC is a loving tribute to our inspiration at growing quality grapes and making great wine.
12EC Vineyard is part of the San Antonio Valley AVA in the Jolon Wine Corridor in Lockwood, CA, the new artisan wine country of Southern Monterey County. Located 30 miles north-west of Paso Robles, this area has hot days and cool nights, the perfect combination for Cabernet Sauvignon. We hand farm using sustainable practices as we transition to organic - no chemicals. We prune for 3 ton per acre yield and hand harvest to produce high quality Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes.
Samples of 2019 vintage made from these grapes are available. Plan your 12EC Vineyard tour to see our Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes and taste our 2019 vintage for yourself.
