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.

Finding a venue was one of the most stressful parts of planning our wedding. We visited way too many places, but upon walking into Saltwater Farm Vineyard, we both just knew this is where our perfect day needed to take place. It's pure magic. I'm fascinated by the history of the property and didn't let any opportunity slip to let people know we were getting married on a vineyard that used to be a WW2-era airport. We visited several times leading up to the big day and everyone there treated us like family. Merrily and her team are a well-oiled machine and took care of every little detail to make our wedding the best it could possibly be, including giving us what we heard was a stellar babysitting recommendation and ordering sandwiches and snacks for the bridal suite day-of. I loved watching our guests frolic through the vines to take pictures during our cocktail hour, and though I've only seen 2 of our own photos so far, I know those are going to be fantastic with this venue as the background. I really hope someone we know chooses to get married there so that we have an excuse to go back and do it all again!

You cannot make a better venue choice than Saltwater Farm Vineyard for your wedding. It is truly a magical place. From the first time we pulled into the driveway, I knew we were in good hands. I am not the girl that’s been planning her wedding her entire life and was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of selecting a venue that was not a typical banquet hall. I immediately fell in love with this place and Michael and Merrily’s enthusiasm for the vineyard and their couples made selecting Saltwater an easy choice.
These guys are consistently booked every weekend during wedding season but always made us feel like we were their only wedding couple! And it’s not just the owners, but the entire staff treated us like we were family throughout the entire planning process. They’re all experts in wedding planning and their preferred vendor list was a lifesaver.
We had planned to have our ceremony inside but heavy rain forced us to have it indoors. Even inside, the ceremony was beautiful and so many of our guests commented on what a spectacular place it was! The on-site bridal suite was absolutely perfect and it was so nice to have an on-site place to get ready the morning of. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We truly feel like we gained a family this year in the entire gang at Saltwater!

We cannot put into words how amazing our experience was getting married here last week. This venue is simply breathtaking, the staff and owners are remarkable to work with, and their preferred vendors are the best in the business (we are so grateful to have chosen: Gourmet Galley Catering; Jennifer Bach Photography; Dean Rocha Films Videography; Adams Garden of Eden; Deluxe Entertainment; Chaz Zezulka/Justice of the Peace; You Take The Cake, LLC; and Kathryn W. Salon). Now we cannot wait to go back as a married couple, to happily reminisce, and to rejoice in the beautiful surroundings with their delicious wine! -Lindsey & Phavixai
