The DeMott Brothers, Richie and Doug, began what is known as Gin Creek in 1988. Richie and Doug were not only brothers and business partners, but dearest and closest friends. Their daddy, Max DeMott, passed away when Richie was eighteen years old and Doug was only eight years old at the time, so Richie felt as though Doug was like a son to him.
Richie was the visionary of Gin Creek and Doug was the builder. They were a great team together and worked side-by-side daily until Richie’s untimely passing away on June 12, 2015. Doug continues the day-to-day operations of Gin Creek Plantation and Gin Creek Vineyards & Winery.
