Preheat the slow cooker to Auto or Low setting.
In a frying pan, melt the butter and add the onion. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until soft then add the bacon. Toss the venison in the flour then add to the casserole dish. Brown on all sides then transfer to the slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients, starting with 1/2 a bottle of wine and using more if needed as time goes on.
Cover and cook for 7 to 8 hours or until the venison is tender. Serve in warmed bowls.
As all slow cookers are a little different, check the dish every hour or so after the first 5 hours to ensure that the venison is cooking well and becoming tender. Do not overcook, and remove once the venison easily breaks apart with a fork.
