WEDDINGS AT THE OLD FIELD VINEYARDS

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 wedding.

Weddings 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.
