How Spinal Tap and Pinot Noir came together for Twelve Wine.

“The numbers all go to eleven,” Christopher Guest’s Nigel Tufnel explains in the classic rock spoof, This Is Spinal Tap. In this iconic scene in film history, Tufnel is referring to the maximum volume on his guitar’s specially-made amplifier. This punchline supposedly inspired the name of Twelve Winery. Not satisfied with a paltry eleven, John and Linda Lenyo believe their wines go up to twelve instead.
