Your privacy is very important to us. We have prepared this privacy notice so that we can better communicate our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This policy is linked from the footer of every page in our website to make it easy to find.

The Information We Collect

  • Aggregate Information
    Our web server automatically collects aggregate information about the visitors to our website. Our server logs contain the IP address of the computer visiting, the date, the files requested, and the type of platform making the request. It also collects the referring information passed to the website by the previous website. This information is the basis for statistics that allow us to better serve our visitors and meet their needs. None of this information will identify neither an individual user nor any personal information such as their name or email address.

    Similar to most websites, we may also place a small bit of code, called a cookie, on your computer to help us determine in aggregate how many return visitors we have to the website. If you create a user account with us, we may also use a cookie to allow you to avoid entering your username and password each time you visit the website. Lastly, we also use session cookies, which expire the moment you leave the website to identify an individual as they pass from page to page so that we may maintain variables such as the items in your shopping cart.
  • Supplied Information
    At various points on our website we may expressly ask you to supply us information in order to provide you a service or allow us to contact you in the future. This collection is always completely voluntary. Examples of this include but are not limited to: collecting billing, shipping, and payment information to make an online purchase, or name and email information to sign up for an online newsletter. Only through this supplied information can we identify an individual user of the website.

The way we use information

We use the aggregate information collected to better tailor our website to meet the needs of our visitors, such as the total number of visitors and pages viewed, the pages most visited, and from what sites they arrived. It is impossible to identify any individual’s personal information with this data.

The information we collect will be used to accomplish the appropriate task. For example, information collected surrounding the placement of an online order will be used to fill that order. Information collected for an email newsletter will be used to periodically send you an email that contains our online newsletter.

Additionally, we may use the information to contact you in the future about offers that we feel you may enjoy, however, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

We never sell, rent, or lease your information to any outside parties without your express consent.

How you can access or correct your information

You can obtain all the personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us at the above email address. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows the error and we will correct it promptly.

Children under the age of 13

Our website does not target and is not intended for children under the age of 13 and thus we will not knowingly collect data from them. We value the privacy needs of these children and encourage parents to be an active participant in their child's online activities and interests. We abide by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements. If we discover personal data from a child that has been provided through our website, we will remove the information immediately.

Links to outside websites

Our website may contain links to outside websites that are outside of our control. These websites may have a different policy in regards to privacy and thus we cannot be responsible for their actions and business practices. If you are in doubt or have any concerns, look for the privacy policy on their website.

Changes to this policy

As the need arises, we may need to change this policy by updating this page. Please check back to ensure any revised policies continue to meet with your approval. By using this website, you agree to our policies as outlined in this document.

How to contact us

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please contact us at the above mailing address, phone number or email address.






Mill Creek Vineyards is a Non-Community Water System, because people come to the tasting room and could drink our water. As such we are required to monitor our water every calendar quarter. We failed to monitor as required for drinking water standards during the last quarter of the past year and, therefore, are in violation of the regulations.  Even though this failure was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we did to correct this situation.

What should You do?

  • There is nothing you need to do at this time.
  • The table below lists the contaminant(s) we did not properly test for during the last year, how many samples we are required to take and how often, how many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date on which follow-up samples were taken.


Required Sampling Frequency

Number of Samples Taken

When All Samples Should Have Been Taken

When Samples Were or Will Be Taken

Total Coliforms

Once per quarter

One in each of the first three quarters. None in last quarter of 2020.

Last quarter of 2020

A Sample was taken on January 26, 2021.

It was not contaminated.
















If you have health issues concerning the consumption of this water, you may wish to consult your doctor.

What is being done?

We have since taken the required samples, as described in the last column of the table above.  The samples showed we are meeting drinking water standards.”


We took a water sample on January 26th, 2021. That sample came back as “Not Contaminated”.

We have added redundant reminder protocols  with three individuals at Mill Creek to insure that samples are taken on a quarterly basis.
