On a recent end of summer trip to the North Georgia mountains, my sister and I visited the 12 Spies Vineyards at sunset. We brought a pre-cooked pizza from a local restaurant. The staff at the vineyard baked our pizza in a wood fired oven while we were inside sampling wines. We purchased a bottle and enjoyed it with our pizza as the sun went down. They also have live music sometimes, so definitely check their website for details.

We are glad you and your sister shared your time with us on our Friday night for pizza! It has turned into a great time for locals and visitors to visit and fellowship. We hope you will include 12 Spies on your next visit to the area.

Thank your for taking the time to share your experience with us!

Been here before, came here this trip, Will be there again! Love love love. Great location, excellent outdoor seating and scenery and with a breeze on a cool day our wine was perfect!

Bring a picnic and plan to stay awhile! You can do a tasting and move on to the next winery - but don't! You will be glad you stayed!

I understand on Friday nights you can bring your own pizza and the owner Mike will cook it on the wood fired grill! Suggest to call ahead to confirm this but next time - I will be doing the same.

We lucked out they had a great duet playing on the patio and we stayed about 3 hours.

Staff incredibly friendly and totally welcoming.

Add it to your list!

Cindy, thank you for your kind words and letting us know how much you and the girls enjoyed your time here at 12 Spies! Our team works hard to insure your experience is the best it can possibly be!

We "plan" to continue our Friday Night Pizza on the Veranda into October weather (cold) permitting of course. It is a great time to relax and get to know the other guest as well as what their secret ingredients are for their pizza!

Hope to see you back again soon!

Cheers,

Mike

My wife and I enjoy trying the different wineries and found this one to a pleasure to visit. The place is very nice and the wine is great. At the end of the tasting we purchased a bottle and sat out on the patio to enjoy the day. It is in a beautiful place and very relaxing setting. The people were friendly and we enjoyed stopping in.

The vineyard is very beautiful and a great place to relax. The staff is excellent and very friendly. Oh, and the wine is good too. I recommend a glass of port on the deck.
