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, Oregon.
Comparable in latitude to the Rhone Valley of Southeastern France, Daisy Creek Vineyard sits at 1350 ASL and exhibits an average number of days with temperatures in the vineyard that fall within the optimal growing temperatures for grapes. These factors correlate with the Rhone Valley, in particular, the Northern Rhone and the famous Côte Rotie or “Roasted Slope” of that region which has for centuries cultivated Syrah and Viognier grapes. Some of the best red and white wines in the world come from these grapes. Given these similarities, Daisy Creek chose these varieties as focal plantings.
