Grayhaven is a family owned and operated farm winery located in Gum Spring, Virginia, thirty minutes west of Richmond. The winery is situated on fifty acres of beautiful rolling hills, picturesque vineyards and tree-lined horse pastures. The rustic winery building is replete with handcrafted details, such as the gothic-style oak doors designed and built by winemaker Chuck Peple with iron hinge work by local blacksmith Scott Hinsley.

Grayhaven’s charming tasting room has vaulted ceilings and a viewing window that allows guests to see the winemaking operation in progress. Decks and an enchanting Japanese garden flank the front of the winery. A footbridge arches over cascading Koi ponds to the entrance. Whether your party is 20 or 200, Grayhaven provides an intimate environment with a relaxed atmosphere.

Create the wedding you want at a venue that is happy to let you be you! Flexibility sets Grayhaven’s venue apart - Couples may bring in their own caterer or self cater. Horse & carriages, hot-air balloons, lanterns & torches, sporting equipment, special props, stage construction and even family dogs are allowed at Grayhaven. For weddings, reunions and other large events, a full-day rental allows couples ample decorating, set-up and breakdown time during the week prior to and after their event.



Outer Space

Grayhaven’s available sites are all outdoors. A full-day booking allows use of any and all areas of the farm from the sprawling lawns to the vineyards, from the gardens to the walking trails and woods.  The most popular ceremony site is at the small pond in a shady stand of pines near the winery; the most popular reception site is the pasture between the pond and the winery.
Guests may use the winery’s two restrooms - changing rooms are provided for the bridal party & groomsmen.  The winery’s tasting room and gift shop are open for wedding guests for the duration of the festivities.

Grayhaven wines and sangrias can be provided to your guests in a variety of ways to suit any budget.  In addition to Grayhaven wines, our license allows us to order in special wines for your event.  Whether you’re looking to show off your Italian (or Croatian, African..) roots or add a touch of nostalgia for the wine you had on your first date, chances are we can get it for you. 
Wines and sangrias can be served by our staff in an Open or Cash Bar setting or can be simply placed at each table for self-serve.  Pricing, of course, depends on the wines you choose.  Grayhaven Sangrias are available for $65 per gallon and include classic red sangria with Valencia oranges as well as white sangrias with peaches & mint, mango, lychee or pear. 
Couples may also serve beer, champagne and spirits at their reception as long as the non-Grayhaven alcohol does not enter into Grayhaven’s winery facility or tasting room. A One Day Banquet license must be obtained from the ABC  - apply online at the VA ABC.
