Say "I DO" in the Vineyard and dance the night away in the Winery and Tasting Rooms amidst our Stainless Steel tanks and French Oak barrels.

We produce mostly dry, European style wines, but offer sweet as well to please every palate. Serve our wines accompanied by the Caterer of your choice, the possibilities are endless.

We cannot express how happy with how our Sanctuary Vineyards wedding turned out this October 2017. Christine, John, and Elton were AMAZING to work with. They were so flexible, and did everything they could to make our day go perfect. They really know what they are doing when it comes to weddings. Christine was very easy to access and her correspondences via email were always very quick and professional. We were able to communicate from a state away to ensure we had everything we needed to make our day exactly what we imagined. From the time we were engaged, we felt nothing but love and acceptance from Elton and John. As we saw them at the winery throughout our year + long engagement, they always welcomed us with open arms, and made us feel like family. On the day of the wedding, it rained, so we had to turn to plan B and move the wedding inside. Let me tell you, I was super bummed, as I was so excited to get married in the beautiful vineyard. But, Christine and her team, along with my wedding planners, were able to make the wine room the most BEAUTIFUL plan B I have ever seen. All my guests couldn't believe that I would want to have the ceremony take place anywhere else but inside the wine room with the barrels as the backdrop. They made the what would have been frantic plan B situation seamless and beautiful. We cannot say enough great things about this winery and their wedding services. Christine and her team are top notch. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!Sent on 11/14/2017

We had such a blast hosting our wedding reception at Sanctuary Vineyards! We had some ideas about using the space in a way that was a little unconventional, and Christine was super receptive to us making it our own. We had around 180 guests, and were able to utilize the barrel room and the covered outdoor area in a way that didn't feel crammed at all. So many of our guests remarked about how unique the vibe of this venue is (and how good the wine was!). It's elegant without being uptight, and it's really not too far of a trek from where most of our family and friends were staying on the beach. It's was also incredibly helpful for some of the vendors to be able to set up the day before - our vendors remarked about how thankful they were for that bonus! Also love the fact that the space is owned and run by a family that's had deep roots in the area for generations - very rad history here! Thanks so much Sanctuary!

After searching for a vineyard that could offer what we needed/wanted for our wedding while also being close to the beach (to match our theme), Sanctuary Vineyards became the clear top choice for us. Christine, Elton, and the other staff were extremely kind and helpful- from always being available to answer any questions in the year of planning beforehand to helping us move the ceremony inside the day before (we originally wanted to have just the reception at the vineyard and do the ceremony on the beach, but cold weather forced us inside). The quality of the ceremony was not diminished (we were even able to move the cross that was going to be on the beach and set it up against the wine barrel backdrop), and they did an amazing job transitioning the space to a reception venue in a short amount of time. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and they made you feel like family throughout the whole process. I believe that all of our guests would agree that it is a fantastic place to have a wedding.
