What Makes Saltwater Farm Vineyard Stand Out?

The combination of one of the most stunning natural sites in New England and rich history makes Saltwater Farm Vineyard a rare jewel. For wine lovers looking for the ultimate winery experience, the elegant historic charm of Saltwater Farm is hard to beat.

Saltwater Farm Vineyard is famous for its award-winning home and its breathtaking grounds on the picturesque Connecticut shoreline. The vineyard aims to sustain the beautiful history of the land complete with a WWII-era private airport while providing wine lovers with delectable wines and beautiful venues for all sorts of occasions.

The immaculately restored World War II-era airplane hangar provides a unique Tasting Room where wedding receptions and other intimate events can be held.

One of the standout features of Saltwater Farm is the World War II-era vintage hangar that was impeccably restored to showcase a vaulting roof, airy interiors and massive timber trusses to create a truly unique atmosphere.

There is plenty to enjoy at our vineyard and we welcome visitors and wine lovers from all parts to enjoy this rustic haven with its historic charms and breathtaking landscape.
