SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – After 13 successful years, Deer Creek Winery owners Rhonda and Denis Brooks have plans to retire.
Both Rhonda and Denis are natives of Clarion County, with Rhonda hailing from Lake Lucy, while Denny was raised in Fryburg. Getting married right out of high school, they will be celebrating 40 years of marriage in August of this year.
Don’t worry – Deer Creek Winery is NOT closing!
Although retirement is in The Brooks plans, Rhonda said she isn’t sure they will ever truly leave the business.
“We’re looking to retire, but at the same time, if it’s going to grow, we need to expand by more bed-and-breakfasts. But, if we’re going to expand, we need to hire a lot more staff to do the work that we used to do.
