My husband and I recently had our ceremony and reception at Sanctuary Vineyards and would recommend this venue to anyone planning an event. We worked with John who was very professional and knowledgeable. He was very helpful with planning our event, which was a tremendous help.

Our ceremony was held in the vineyard itself. The space was breathtaking! The beautiful vines and grapes were enough backdrop that no other decorations were needed. We had so many compliments on the natural beauty. It was evident that the guests enjoyed the atmosphere as much as we did.

Our reception was held in the winery itself. There are two main spaces, one with a bar area, perfect for cocktail hour, and the other the larger space for dining and dancing. It was very conducive to a wedding reception as the two spaces could remain separate until we were set up for dinner and then the two spaces were opened to one another to create a good flow. The decor has a stylish modern twist that can be transformed to the style of your liking very easily. This was one of the main things that drew my husband and I to this location since many of the places in the area have a heavy beach theme that can be hard to tailor to a different decor.

As Sanctuary Vineyards is a winery, we served their wine at our event and had RAVE reviews. Some of our guests actually went back the following day to purchase some to take home with them!

The two bartenders who assisted with our event were extremely nice and a great pleasure to work with. Proving what a great team John has.

My husband and I can say that choosing Sanctuary Vineyards as our venue was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. We had a spectacular time celebrating there and our guests did as well.

We used Sanctuary Vineyards for our ceremony and reception site. Leading up the wedding they were amazing about answering emails and open to pretty much anything.

They are relatively new to holding large events like weddings, so we had a few issues the couple days before the wedding, but in the end it was absolutely beautiful. We were told we could come in and decorate on Thursday, then that changed to Friday and when we arrived on Friday to decorate, the floors in the back room were still being washed and were soaking wet. We ended up having to get everything together in the front room and then come back Saturday morning before our hair/makeup appointments to finish decorating/setting up. Our wedding turned out to be the first wedding of their fall season, so they had to spend a little extra time getting ready.

They also have a tent so if you wanted to hold the reception outdoors you can. The ceremony was awesome and absolutely beautiful in the vineyard.

John and Elton really are fantastic and very accommodating. I would recommend Sanctuary to anyone - just make sure you are firm on what you want and when you can start decorating/setting up (especially if you don't have a planner/event decorator to do it for you!).

Sanctuary Vineyards was the PERFECT outdoor location and setting for our wedding!!!! Located in Jarvisburg, NC, the vineyard and Cotton Gin grounds couldn't have been a more perfectly chosen backdrop for what came to be nothing short of a FAIRYTALE. The Wright Family, especially Owner, Tommy and his son, and Winery Operator John Wright. Though ours was one of the first weddings held there ever, the family and their staff has a lot of experience hosting large events through wine tastings, festivals and family events. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating with every last request or concern. Our wedding was the first week of October, luckily, with beautiful weather. The vineyards and surrounding fields and gardens were lush and green, but the site is maintained and having grown up in the area, I can tell you that it is beautful and well-maintained year-round. Our ceremony was held on a grassy lawn along one of the vineyards, and rows of fresh, ripe grapes and rows of vines served as the perfect backdrop for our alter. White folding chairs were provided, as well as props and helpful hands of their staff. We chose to hold our reception in a tent on an adjacent lawn, and arrangements were offered for provision of tent, tables and chairs if needed. The newly completed, and fully operational winery is now available for an intimate, indoor option and can be set up to suit any event of this type. John and winery staff served wine at the reception that was grown and produced by Sanctuary Vineyards too, which our guests LOVED!There couldn't have been a better place to hold such a special occasion, and couldn't come more highly recommended. Call John and let him help you to create your DREAM WEDDING!

We stocked our own bar for our wedding from this local vineyard and a nearby brewery. They were wonderful throughout, holding two tastings for us and detailing not only the tastes and tones of their wines, but the process of making them and why particular years were better then others. They threw in a TON of extras with our (admittedly very large) order, and were friendly and accommodating throughout. The wines we chose were delicious, and were very popular with our guests. John, the owner, was consistently easy to contact, informative, friendly and helpful.
