Saltwater Farm is an award-winning vineyard set on more than 100 panoramic acres – 15 of which are planted with six varieties of grapes – bordered by tidal marshes, a cove and vistas of Long Island Sound, near the historic New England coastal village of Stonington, Connecticut.
The centerpiece of the bucolic property, which has a small private airport dating to the late 1930s, is a World War II – vintage hangar, designed by the late architect John W. Lincoln, a colleague of Walter Gropius. The hangar, opening onto terraces and the vineyard, has been preserved and converted into a winery. The seamlessly renovated building showcases a vaulting roof, silvery milled aluminum exterior, the original interior wood sheathing and, dominating the airy room and gathering places, handsome and massive timber trusses.
Saltwater Farm Vineyard is an ideal setting for celebration or for contemplation depending on the occasion. For more information and to contact us call toll free at 800-818-7258 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Couldn't have asked for a better venue
My husband and I got married here at SFV September 6 2020. We just got our photos and wanted to wait since a picture says a thousand words! We chose our venu and date pre COVID19. That being said the owners Michael and Merrily were absolutely beyond accommodating. They met with us so many times to coordinate different COVID friendly options. They were extremely responsive and always worked with us to ensure we could have our special day and ensure it was safe. Without their support as well the whole staff at SFV i can't imagine how much more stressful planning would have been. Now to the actual venue! September is an AMAZING time to get married at this vineyard. Everything is green and the Vines are full! It is a stunning location. Also, there is plenty of room to social distance. The ceremony was beautiful and we had dinner outside under the tent which was even better than inside as the weather was PERFECT! We could not have had a better experience. It was everything we imagined and more. Thanks a million to Michael and Merrily for helping guide us through to our dream wedding!Sent on 11/11/2020

Gorgeous venue, highly recommend!!
We had a small, intimate wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard, and couldn’t have been happier with the venue. As my husband and I didn’t want a cookie cutter banquet wedding, scenery and ambiance were two things that were very important things for us. Upon entering Saltwater Farm Vineyard, the view was gorgeous and serene…we immediately knew we wanted to get married here. The hangar is beautiful, rustic yet elegant with café lights, a bar, fireplace, and a huge open space (perfect for social distancing). The outdoor ceremony area in front of the vineyard was vast and lush, truly breathtaking. The bridal suite is a dream, with sweeping views of the vineyard, and tons of natural light beaming in. This venue checked all the boxes….it was PERFECT! Merrily, the venue owner, was so attentive throughout the whole process, prompt with communication and so flexible with our vendor choices. She was always there to greet us when we scheduled multiple site visits, and was always so passionate about the vineyard. On the day of the wedding, the Saltwater staff was nothing but professional and efficient. Our friends and family commented on how kind and friendly the staff were, making us all feel at home. We can’t thank Merrily and staff enough for a truly magical and unforgettable day!Sent on 08/21/2020

Saltwater Farm Vineyard is incredible
Saltwater Farm Vineyard was the perfect location for our fall wedding. The location is amazing, and incredibly peaceful. The building is beautiful, even with no additional decorations (even though we did bring some). There is a full suite upstairs for the bridal party to get ready, including a full bathroom and kitchen!Sent on 10/27/2019
We had both our ceremony and reception at the vineyard, and everything was beautiful. The platform for the ceremony was right at the start of the vines, so none of our guests needed to walk very far. The cocktail hour was on the back patio, which had more than enough space for our 75 guest wedding. We had the reception inside, which also had plenty of space. Our guests loved the look of the building (so do we) and enjoyed having separate, quieter spaces to go if needed. However, most of them spent a lot of time on the dance floor!
The Saltwater Farm Vineyard staff are incredible! Merrily and her team are so warm and welcoming, and they are very attentive to detail. During our cocktail hour, we had a wine tasting, where the staff was able to tell our guests about the different wines we had chosen. Our guests loved the wine (always a good thing when you get married at a vineyard!) and the location.
We would definitely recommend Saltwater Farm Vineyard as a ceremony or reception location (or even just for a wonderful glass of wine!)
