12 Spies Vineyard Solar Eclipse

Dates : 8/21/17 - 8/21/17
12 Spies Vineyard
550 Black Branch Rd
Rabun Gap, GA 30568


12 Spies Vineyards is ground zero for the upcoming solar eclipse which means we will have the longest period of darkness during the eclipse on the North American continent! With that said, by resounding requests from our friends and guests, we have planned a solar eclipse event on the 12 Spies Vineyards grounds.

12 Spies Vineyards is offering a package for all our friends and guests on August 21, 2017. Our pasture is the perfect place to witness this historic event. The unobstructed view will allow for you to observe the eclipse from beginning to end. Bring your lawn chairs and blanket and enjoy great music, a box lunch and wine.
