3. Daisy Creek Vineyard

📍675 Shafer Lane, Jacksonville, OR 97530

Only a 5-minute drive from The Vineyards at Stage Pass! 

Daisy Creek Vineyard draws its name from the winding stream that courses through the property, originating in the mineral-rich Siskiyou Mountains and ending in the Rogue River. Situated on the eastern edge of Jacksonville, the vineyard’s landscape intertwines with remnants of a slurry mine once explored by prospectors seeking gold at the turn of the century. 

Today, this terrain holds a different treasure: a blend of sands, rocks, gravel, and a rich amalgamation of minerals carried down from the mountains over millennia. This unique composition forms the bedrock of the vineyard’s soil, infusing a distinct character into the grapes and giving the wines a delicious, distinctive flavor. Visit the Daisy Creek Vineyard tasting room and enjoy a flight of four wines for only $15.
