At Laurel Gray we love to have you visit, and we invite you to bring your fur baby along with you when you come. Because we allow our customers to sample bread and artisan sauces, we do not allow animals inside the building. On our porches, we strive to provide a beautiful, clean environment for our customers to enjoy a picnic with a bottle or glass of Laurel Gray wine. Therefore, we ask that all pets be on a leash and kept in grass areas only.
Thank you for understanding.

Roses are planted near the vineyard to indicate approaching trouble by pests or disease. Legend has it that roses bring good luck for the harvest. Roses and French grapevines require the same type of constant supervision; therefore roses and wine are a natural combination.
At Laurel Gray, we currently have 70 Jackson Perkins Tea Roses. In front of our tasting room/gift shop are two rose gardens consisting of 40 tea roses. Our red barn also has tea roses on each side of the doorway and we have roses in our “cottage” herb garden. Some of the varieties we enjoy are Double Delight (Benny’s favorite), Diana Princess of Wales, Barbara Bush, Sultry, Tropical Sunset, Mister Lincoln, Perfectly Red, Sweet Valentine, Fragrant Cloud, Rose Rhapsody, and many more.
The roses are a great delight to everyone in our family. We like to share them with friends who are under the weather or make an arrangement for our church on Sunday morning. They bloom from late May until the first frost usually in mid-October.
