Grayhaven is one of the oldest independent commercial vineyards in Virginia, founded in 1978 by Lyn and Chuck Peple with the help of their daughters Jane and Max. What started as a retirement venture for the Peples steadily grew as a family business and remains family owned and operated. Grayhaven Winery was launched in 1994, producing hand-crafted wines from vinifera and French hybrid grapes.
Nestled in the heart of Virginia wine country, Grayhaven continues to produce “Old World” style wines that celebrate the many facets of varietal character expressed with each vintage year. Pinotage, Marechal Foch, Sauvignon Blanc, Chambourcin, Cabernet Franc, Traminette, and Cayuga are among the many estate-grown varieties.
Meet the three generations of this winemaking family and you’ll see how their love of nature and animals, obsession with food and their passion for winemaking help create exceptional wines.
