Laurel Haven Vineyards is a family-owned vineyard nestled in the Catawba Region of
South Carolina, just minutes from Charlotte, North Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina. First planted in in 2022, our vineyards provide a magical escape from the world and an opportunity to enjoy premium events and accommodations with memorable hospitality.
Laurel Haven Vineyards focuses on providing guests with three intertwined experiences: extraordinary service, a beautiful environment, and exceptional wines. Our success in each of these areas are driven by our commitment and passion for excellence.
Laurel Haven Estate was purchased for its prime farmlands and unsurpassable beauty. The endless potential for the perfect vineyard clinched the deal. It’s south-facing fields, rolling topography, and 5 acre lake would ensure the happiest grapes.
Laurel Haven Estate embarks on a substantial expansion of the event facilities and services: transforming the lakeside amphitheater into permanent seating that can accommodate 200, reception seating under tent for 150+ more, as well as an iconic lawn to host concerts, movies, and other events.
The next phase of Laurel Haven Estate’s development included the remodeling of the historic main house and bunkhouse to accommodate 24 overnight guests, as well as prepping the farmland to welcome the new vineyards.
Jenna enrolled and attended South Carolina’s New and Beginning Farmers Program offered by Clemson University. Graduating with honors, she hired a viticulturist and farming consultant to select the best hybrid grape variety and ensure optimum farming practices. The Crimson Cabernet grape was selected and Laurel Haven Vineyards will be the first South Carolina home for this variety!
Laurel Haven Estate continues its development of the north field with the erection of end posts establishing the vineyard structure and the Watson trellis system for the first acre of Crimson Cabernet grapevines. As well as installing drip irrigation directly from the lake to ensure sustainable winegrowing.
New white grape vines will be planted in the adjacent acre. A tasting room and winery will be in the near future. Stay tuned for exciting updates!
