Welcome to Deer Creek Vineyards
We are one of Southern Oregon’s most unique old vineyard plantings, with 40 acres of rare, own-rooted vines in the Rogue Valley’s cooler climate district, the Illinois Valley. We grow grapes in the same hills and valleys where Oregon’s infamous Gold Rush began more than a hundred years ago. Discover one of Oregon’s best kept secrets!
Wine creates balance when the people and the land prosper
Our vineyard is farmed using only organic inputs, and we are taking a deep dive into nurturing and loving these gnarly 30+ year old vines. While working to incorporate regenerative and sustainable agriculture practices increasingly at our farm, we are also building a team of happy people who take pride in our fruit and benefit directly from farm revenue and profits. As we continue to restore and renew this historic Southern Oregon Vineyard, we also strive to remember daily that wine should be more than just delicious fermented grape juice in a fancy glass. We hope you will be a part of our mission to revitalize and enrich this beautiful little Southern Oregon community!
We strive to achieve the highest standards of excellence in the ways we farm our land, produce our wines, empower our team, cultivate our customer experiences, and outreach in our communities.
The foundation of our business is rooted in integrity over optics. Whether in our farming, wine production, vendor and customer relationship experience, or sales model, we will never compromise our values and principles for profit, political or convenience motives.
We believe that you can never give too much. We have set ourselves on a path to achieving a model where the majority of profits from our business are re-invested into our employees and our community missions.
We seek to preserve and enrich the land we farm, our workers, and the world around us through responsible and accountable business practices that do good while doing no harm.
I am the vine and you are the branches. The one who remains in Me, and I in him, will bear much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing. - John 15:5
What makes Deer Creek Vineyards extraordinary?
At Deer Creek Vineyards, we are small family farmers and wine producers. Our vines are nurtured and cared for by proud members of this remote, rural community and our Vigneron brings a fresh vision, with nearly two decades of wine experience in restaurants, retail, vineyards, and the cellar. We approach farming like a relationship with our vines and the land. We see winemaking as a shepherding responsibility, through which we coax an authentic expression from the fruit in hopes of capturing the magic of each vintage. We see employees as partners who should share in the fruits of their labor. As a small local business, we strive to support other small businesses in the community, and we also strive to be an agent for positive change by investing in local community initiatives that are aligned with our vision and values. Oh, and the wine’s pretty dang good too!

Where Wine & Purpose Intersect
Part of our DCV vision is to build a culture driven by people who care about putting their dollars behind their values. Our ROOTED Wine Club is a space where you can drink delicious & distinguished wines from our Vineyard, knowing that the fruits of our labor & the lions’ share of our farm profits go directly into local community initiatives that meet tangible needs and manifest meaningful change.
Being a part of our ROOTED family not only gives us the opportunity to get to know you on a more personal level, it pours an abundance of impeccable flavor & experience at your fingertips! From having our wines on hand for a special occasion or just because it’s a Tuesday night, you’ll enjoy amazing discounts and lots of other perks that allow you to give back simply by pouring yourself a glass. By building a community of likeminded people who care about making a difference while drinking the wines we love, your ROOTED membership is anchored in purpose that is driven to create tangible change for good everywhere that Deer Creek Vineyards reaches.
We’ve negotiated specially discounted shipping rates to reduce shipping costs, and wine club members aren’t charged for shipping boxes. First & 2nd shipments for the Vigneron’s Clubs will be going out together in one shipment for this year’s allocations. The first Wine Club shipments of 2022 will go out by May 15th. Payment cards will be charged for wine plus shipping at the time the wine is mailed and shipping quote is generated.
