Saltwater Farm Vineyard is set on more than 100 panoramic acres – 15 of which are planted with five varieties of grapes, and 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.
