Daisy Creek Vineyard, named for the meandering stream which flows through the property from its source high in the mineral-rich Siskiyou Mountains to its end in the Rogue River, is located on the eastern boundary of the historic gold rush town of Jacksonville. Suffused with history, the vineyard itself surrounds and spans the remnants of a slurry mine where turn of the century prospectors sifted the sands and gravels of Daisy Creek looking for gold. Today, these sands, rocks, gravels and rich amalgam of minerals swept down from the mountains over millennia with them comprise treasure of a different kind, the unique soil which nurtures our vines and makes instantly recognizable the wines produced from the Daisy Creek Vineyard – our terroir.
