our story

As Paula Deen’s sons, we had the incredible fortune to learn a lot from mama growing up in her Savannah, Georgia kitchens. With her loving guidance, we were taught to cook from our hearts, laugh from our bellies and welcome guests like they were part of our own family.

With this warm spirit of southern hospitality, and in partnership with award-winning master vintner and celebrated restaurateur, Doug Margerum, we are honored to bring to your table an assortment of beautiful hand-selected wines to help you toast to food, family and fun

about Deen Brothers wine

the Deen Brothers

Jamie and Bobby Deen are entrepreneurs, businessmen, authors, and sons of American cooking and lifestyle icon Paula Deen. The brothers worked together with their mom as an integral part of the now legendary business, The Bag Lady – the famous sandwich delivery service that launched Paula Deen's success.

The Deen family took The Bag Lady concept: Great food, great value and a whole lot of love—and expanded it into one of America's most successful restaurant launches; the 1989 opening of The Lady and Sons in Savannah which quickly garnered national exposure.

Soon after, Jamie and Bobby began making regular appearances on their mom's cooking shows on the Food Network, and later launched their own show on the network's, "Road Tasted." "Road Tasted" followed The Deen Brothers as they explored America in search of more examples of love and warmth-infused cooking. Jamie and his brother Bobby are also accomplished authors, and have published four books: The Deen Bros. Cookbook-Recipes From the Road (2007), Y'all Come Eat (2008), Take It Easy (2009) and Get Fired Up (2011). They have each published solo cookbooks; Jamie with Good Food and Bobby with From Mama's Table to Mine. The brothers have also expanded their efforts with a line of cookware, spices and sauces for Evine on television. Their newest foray into wine allows the Deen Brothers to share their knowledge of food and wine pairings with both new and experienced wine drinkers.

With The Lady and Sons firmly established, Bobby and Jamie began appearing to rave reviews on their mother's cooking shows on the Food Network, and soon launched their own show on the network, "Road Tasted," which followed Bobby and Jamie as they explored America in search of love and warmth-infused cooking. Both Bobby and Jamie Deen began to draw a new, younger audience to the growing number of Deen Family fans in America.

Both brothers have had their own cooking shows including Jaime’s Home For Dinner with Jamie Deen, on The Food Network and Bobby’s show, Not My Mama's Meals, on the Cooking Channel.

Today, Jamie lives with his wife Brooke and their two children in Savannah. Deen serves on the boards of the Bethesda Home for Boys and the Coastal America's Second Harvest, and is a sought after speaker at small business conferences, schools and community outreach programs.

Doug Margerum

Award-Winning Winemaker. Celebrated Restaurateur. Winery Consultant. Négociant.

Some say that Doug single-handedly launched the vibrant Santa Barbara wine scene. He has founded award-winning restaurants, owns his own winery and consults for numerous others, and imports some of the most sought-after wines in the US.

Doug Margerum is the owner and director of winemaking at Margerum Wine Company, which has a winery in Buellton, a vineyard in Los Olivos, and tasting rooms in Santa Barbara. As a restaurateur, he is the former owner of Wine Cask and Intermezzo, two prominent Santa Barbara establishments.

In Santa Barbara County wine making circles, Doug Margerum is nearly legendary. His wine shop and restaurant, Wine Cask, was ground zero for the nascent and then emerging Santa Barbara County wine culture, over twenty five years ago. Beginning in the 1980s, he was a fearless champion of Santa Barbara County wines and he helped to nurture winemakers by not only providing a space for their bottlings in his wine shop and on his wine list, but also by promoting those wines as local (long before the locavore movement).

Doug’s unique background with retail wine sales, as a sommelier in a Grand Award restaurant and as a winemaker makes him sought out by a variety of wineries to assist in the formation of their brands. Doug has worked for Chêne Bleu super Rhône wines in France, Cimarone Winery, Jamie Slone Wines and continues to consult for La Encantada Vineyards, Happy Canyon Vineyards, and Cent’Anni Wines all in Santa Barbara County.
