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 info@saltwaterfarmvineyard.com. Read less

When my husband and I went to see Saltwater Farm Vineyard, we were sold. The grounds are stunning, the indoor reception space is gorgeous, and the staff is incredible. We booked the vineyard for our wedding on the spot.
The best part of the vineyard is Merrily and Michael, the owners. Every email leading up to the wedding was answered within 5 minutes and the answer was always "yes, let's make that happen." They are so kind and they love what do. And they just wanted us to enjoy our day. Well, we really did. We had the most perfect wedding start to finish. We owe so much of that to Saltwater Farm Vineyard.
Thank you Merrily, Michael, and the rest of the staff for giving us the best day ever!

After seeing Saltwater Farm Vineyard, I could not stop dreaming about my perfect wedding, and knew it had to be at Saltwater Farm. It is the most simplistically beautiful venue with a picturesque vineyard, and classy interior. The bridal party prepared in the perfect bridal suite overlooking the vines, we had our ceremony in the Vineyard and our reception inside the converted airplane hangar. Owners Merrily and Michael are incredibly accommodating, and they take pride in providing a high-end wedding venue without crystals and chandeliers and the bling of nearby venues. We needed minimal decor to create the perfect setting for our reception.
The pricing was slightly higher than other locations that we saw, but we were happy to pay a little more since it meant we could have the entire location for the afternoon through the night. Merrily, Michael and Paul were all available on the day of our wedding to make sure everything went smoothly.
There was a small accident in the parking lot when our bus hit one of the guests cars, and Michael had handled it quietly with the bus driver and car owner before any of the guests or the wedding party had to even think about it! Merrily has great suggestions for local vendors, and their preferred caterers are all incredible. We went with Gourmet Galley, but surely would have been pleased with A Thyme to Cook, or Coastal Gourmet. Merrily is a wealth of wedding knowledge that she has collected through the years, and she and Michael are such warm and wonderful people.
We had 142 guests, and felt that even though they can accommodate more, we had the perfect amount of people to avoid crowding. We did have guests sitting in the upstairs lofted area.
We could not be more pleased with every aspect of Saltwater Farm.

My husband and I loved the venue space from the first time we stepped inside. The converted hanger is rustic with modern touches, simple, and elegant. And the landscape with the vineyards, river, and osprey nests is beautiful. The owners are very kind and responsive to questions and concerns. Even though they hold many weddings there, they make you feel special and acknowledge how significant of a day it is. Oh yes, and the wine is fantastic!

We fell in love with Saltwater from the moment we saw the pictures online and when we saw it in person we knew it was the right place for our wedding. The vineyards provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding and they have thought of everything to make the venue perfectly conducive for events. Merrily was a pleasure to work with and it was evident that she truly cared about all of her wedding couples. Her care and concern for our special day and her responsiveness to our numerous emails and calls made us feel very secure throughout the planning process. Merrily and the staff at Saltwater were very flexible and worked with us in every way to be sure our day went exactly as planned. Paul was always a pleasure to see during our visits to the vineyard and was there bright and early to greet us when we arrived on our special day ready to help in anyway possible.

Saltwater Farm Vineyards is the perfect location for a wedding or special event and a wonderful place to visit even when your day is over. Thank you to the entire staff for being such an integral part of our day!!!

We were looking for a non-traditional venue that would connect us with the outdoors and provide a unique setting - with space to move around in. When we visited Saltwate Farm Vineyard we fell in love with it. The setting on the marsh is beautiful. The renovated building provides everything you need for your special day...not to mention great wine! The owners are very nice and personable and very commited to making your day special.

Saltwater Farm Vineyard was the perfect venue for our daughter's wedding not just because of the beautiful setting but because of the incredibly competent and caring...and cool...owners, Merrily and Michael Connery. Annie and Uri's wedding took place the weekend of hurricane/tropical storm Irene, and thanks to them the wedding- including the outdoor ceremony thanks to Michael- took place as if there was not a care in the world. And, this happened despite the fact that Groton Long Point where we live was under an emergency evacuation as was much of coastal Stonington. Without reservation I rate them five star plus! We also served their wine, which was very well received.
Sincerely,
Bonnie Castellani

This venue is simply beautiful. A ceremony in the vines is visually stunning and great for pictures. The refurbished airplane hanger is a stunning spot for a reception. Perfect for about 100 people.
