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.

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!)

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!Sent on 10/10/2018

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.Sent on 11/21/2017
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!
