The inspiration of Gin Creek began in 1967 with our father, Max DeMott. He dreamed of building DeMott Lake. From that dream sprang visions of grandeur and hope. After his death in 1969, the landscape patiently waited for the next thirty years for what has now become the No.1 outdoor wedding destination in America.
In 1999, sitting on the corner of DeMott Lake, a vision was shared of this being a place of serenity. A place where dreams would become reality and happiness would abound.
It was time to get to work with the dream our father started. I’ve always said, “God landscaped this place, we just maintain it.” The name “Gin Creek” came from a combination of two thoughts. The creek that runs through this property, combined with my former profession, cotton ginning. Thus, the name of “Gin Creek” was born. The phrase, “Two Men and a Shovel” is appropriate for the personal touch that Gin Creek shares.
From the winding road to the Presley Log Cabin, and all stops in between, Gin Creek Vineyards is truly “An Unforgettable Southern Experience.” As one person stated, “It doesn’t matter where you stand, every view is inspiring.”
