Weddings / Events



Welcome to The Old Field Vineyards, a very special place for your very special day. Set way back from the Main Road lies the vineyard, the great lawn and Southold Bay.  Your guests arrive and saunter down the farm road, past the grape loaded vines towards the sparkling bay.  With seats set up for the ceremony and to provide a walkway,  you enter through the arches and walk across the green lawn towards towards your intended with the bay behind them. Following the ceremony, guests roam the great lawn in front of our 1850s home, or hang on the sandy beach enjoying a  cocktail, the view and the privacy. When dinner is ready, everyone moves into the reception tent to celebrate your union, as the moon rises over Shelter Island. What could be more perfect!

The Old Field is the only vineyard on Peconic Bay with a private beach to host your special event.

Weddings and parties are held outdoors and under a tent from June 15th through September 15th, and we can accommodate a maximum of 250 guests. Please phone (631) 765-0004 to discuss your requirements.

Wedding / Party Basics

Most of our “day” weddings begin around 3:30 PM and run until 12:00 AM. Music in order to be in compliance with The Town of Southold is to be off by 10:30 PM.

Wine purchases are given 15% off the case price, excluding our sparkling wine. We ask that you pour our wines only.

A property manager representing The Old Field on the day of the event is required.

The Old Field supplies the venue which includes 500 feet of lawn and 600 feet of beach front, electricity and non potable water for cleaning up.

The wedding party/ licensee is responsible for supplying their tent, portable toilets, caterer, band/DJ, party supplies, flowers and anything else they require for their event. We have a list of approved vendors to guide you with your choice.

All garbage removal is the responsibility of the Licensee and is typically handled, at your request, by the caterer.
