Welcome to Sweet Cheeks Winery

Sweet Cheeks Winery began with a vineyard and a dream. Over the years we have grown but our roots remain deep in family and our community.

Our Roots

Our story began in 1978 when Owner, Dan Smith planted a vineyard on a rolling hillside in Crow, Oregon. After a hard day of work he looked over the vineyard and noticed the curious shape of the land and christened the vineyard Sweet Cheeks. At this point starting a winery was only a dream. He continued to farm the land, supplying Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling grapes to local wineries. When a building in Junction City came up for demolition in 2003 he took a chance and relocated it atop the vineyard. Thanksgiving of 2005 those doors opened as our tasting room and marked the beginning of Sweet Cheeks Winery & Vineyard.

Sweet Cheeks Family

We believe that the people make the place. We work together each day to achieve our shared goal.
