Our vineyards are greeted by brilliant sunrises and kissed by ocean breezes. Our unique Coastal Vineyard offers the perfect venue for both rustic and elegant weddings. 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. Inclement weather is not a problem here, as we can quickly move the ceremony indoors, if necessary. Sanctuary Vineyards provides the space, tables, chairs and linens for up to 250 guests. 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. Read less

The planning process there is a blast. We visited Sanctuary Vineyards for all the events that they hosted, like the Crab Daddy and Curri-Shuck, which were fun and gave us some ideas for how we wanted to set up our big day. When the big day finally came, the weather was risky, so we decided to move the ceremony into the same room where the reception was. IT WAS STUNNING! It was so wonderful and comforting having a back-up option that was just as gorgeous as it would have been to get married in the vineyard. The barrels and tanks make for an intriguingly, beautiful backdrop. Thankfully, after the ceremony, the rain stopped so we were able to take pictures outside. The grounds have extraordinary photography opportunities with the various vineyards, “antique” vehicles attractively overgrown with vines, the charming hay ride, and the rustic barn structures. As we left on our hay ride for pictures, the guests were moved from the ceremony area to the front bar area for cocktail hour while the ceremony was broken down and the reception was set up. Once again, I was amazed by how simply-gorgeous that room could be.
Everything about Sanctuary Vineyards makes it an ideal place to have a wedding from every individual that works there to the vast picturesque landscape to the delectable wines. We greatly recommend every couple to get married there if they want their big day to be the best day of their lives, like ours was.

John and his staff at Sanctuary Vineyards are the best at what they do. When my wife and I came in to visit the venue, we needed about 5 minutes before we had decided where we wanted to get married. John does an amazing job of explaining every aspect of how a wedding will go on the day of. He has an answer to almost every question, and when he doesn't, he finds it out for you immediately. John has turned an already great wine business into one of the best wedding venues in the Outer Banks. If you are looking for a venue that provides an excellent inside and outside option, if you are looking for a venue that you will be happy with the day after the wedding, and if you are looking for a wedding venue that friends and family will love, then you should choose Sanctuary Vineyards.

The Sanctuary Vineyards is an awesome venue for a wedding. Being from out of state, we were skeptical when our kids decided to have an outdoor ceremony at the end of October at a working winery. When we arrived on Thursday afternoon, we found just that, a working winery with boxes, etc. piled from floor to ceiling in the wine room. We couldn't have been more surprised on Friday when we arrived for rehearsal. The wedding site was transformed from a bare field to an outdoor Sanctuary and many workers were bustling inside to transform the 'wine room' into a fairyland like something out of OZ. Our daughter's wedding was elegant country and Brooke Mayo Photography captured every aspect perfectly. You will not be disappointed with this venue, and if you are lucky enough to book it, don't miss out on having Brooke do your photography!

Sanctuary Vineyards was the perfect location for our wedding. From day one John was very gracious in providing us tons of information and was happy to answer any and all questions leading up to the event. Not only was he informative, but also not pushy in any way making us decide this venue or any particular vendor.

A few days before and leading up were seamless. Everyone was open to us providing decor and was helpful in making everything happen as we wanted to. Winery staff and bartenders could not be more helpful and fun day of. The event and ceremony space itself are also very inclusive of almost everything you would need. It was great not having to rent chairs, tables, etc. adding to yet another thing on your to do list.

The venue is also very beautiful and the perfect backdrop for a wedding. The wine is also delicious and well received amongst the guests!

John and the entire Sanctuary Vineyard team were extremely helpful and a wonderful group of people to work with. The venue is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a wedding that is relaxed, but romantic. We got married outside in the vineyard and the crew did everything to set up/take down the ceremony and transition to the reception. The reception was perfect because the cocktail hour could be in the tasting room and then the actual reception was held where the wine is bottled. The Sanctuary Vineyard team were all easy-going, more than happy to help with anything I asked for, and open to new ideas. John has a lot of knowledge about wedding planning and can give great recommendations about vendors to use and how to set up. It was truly a dream come true and I HIGHLY recommend Sanctuary Vineyard as a wedding venue!

John Wright and his entire staff at Sanctuary Vineyards were a pleasure to work with. From the initial start of the wedding planning process they were attentive, easy to work with and seemed truly excited to host our wedding. They catered to all of our needs and desires, went out of their way to make sure every detail was perfect and were always pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend Sanctuary Vineyards as a casual yet elegant venue for weddings and events.

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.

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!
