Tamara Stewart - Owner/Vintner
12 Mile Creek Winery is a family owned and operated small farm winery established in 2016. We are set in the foothills of southern Campbell County, nestled overlooking 12 Mile Creek on scenic Rt. 10.
Tami and Kevin decided to combine their passion for the art of wine making and knowledge of business operations to turn them into the dream of a lifetime. Kevin his craft at a very early age and took on this love for wine-making (and cooking). Tami has always had a knack for the business side of things; "we try to do everything together to make it all work smoothly."
The doors opened for tastings in July of 2017. The first year was challenging and there was much to learn about the wine business.
12 Mile Creek Winery produces award winning wines by blending new ideas with old family recipes and traditions.
Step by step we journey toward our dream!

Bottle shock occurs when wine is shaken in travel. It is a temporary condition that can mute the flavor of the wine. Let your wine set for a few days before opening. This should bring the wine back to normal.
Oxidation occurs when wine is exposed to air. It can change the flavor of wine to very unpleasant in a short period of time 12 to 24 hours. The best way to avoid oxidation is to drink it before it happens or remove the air in the bottle with a small bottle hand vacuum or use C02 wine savor. These items can be found on Amazon or stores like Bed Bath & Beyond.
Temperature change can alter the taste of wine drastically. Do not leave your wine in a hot or cold car. Keep your wine in an area of your house that is not in direct sun and temperature stays even. If you like your wine chilled when drinking it the whites can be stored in the refrigerator. Chill your red wine a few hours before drinking.
Wine diamonds occur when wine is refrigerated, crystals can form in the bottle. They are harmless tartrates that are natural in wine. You will mostly find them in red wine because most white wines are cold stabilized during processing and the diamonds are remove. If you see them, just avoid that last little bit of wine in the bottle. Remember they are harmless.
