Saltwater Farm Vineyard with 15 acres of vines is surrounded by coastal waters & overlooking Long Island Sound. The vintage, 1930s airplane hangar has been totally renovated and houses both the winery and tasting room, while also providing an event space best described as ‘industrial chic’ with its vaulting roof, wood sheathing, milled aluminum exterior, timber trusses, modern bathrooms, and sophisticated HVAC system, creating a year-round event facility.
Woman Getting Married Says
I really like the mixture of vibes that this venue has. First it’s a winery, with acre upon acre of vines that truly provides a gorgeous landscape. Then it’s got the industrial, vintage vibe that provides an extremely unique yet not overdone atmosphere.
