We visited Sanctuary Vineyards via a "cruise" on a "tri poon" boat from Duck - across the sound from Jarvisburg. The "Vineyard Cruise" was booked through Kitty Hawk Kites store. What a delightful afternoon! The boat leaves Duck at 4 PM and we were back by about 7 PM. Captain Christie was our intrepid leader. After we docked in Jarvisburg,... More

We love to visit wineries and knew this was a must during our stay on the OBX. With the tastings free, how could we resist? When you first walk in, you enter into a mini gift shop that has a bunch of fun wine related items, some we've seen at other wineries we've visited, but also some really cute unique... More

This was our third year of stopping in at Sanctuary Vineyards for their wine tasting. As always, we were treated to a large variety of dry and sweet red and white wines, all of which are of exceptional quality. We went on a Thursday afternoon, and it wasn't very busy. Elton, the server on staff, was both friendly and knowledgeable... More

We, two couples,went here on a Saturday afternoon. It was very crowded. They had two tasting stations, both were packed. The staff was very busy, with little personal service. The wines were good, and we loved the glasses we got to keep. We will come back on day when it is not so busy. We did buy a couple of... More

John W, General Manager at Sanctuary Vineyards, responded to this review

Thanks for visiting us at Sanctuary Vineyards, and we are sorry we couldn't offer a more personal wine tasting. We were holding our annual wine and oyster festival that day, and with a full house, we were just trying to keep up! Please accept our apology, as well as an invitation to join us again. Thanks for supporting local wineries! More

My partner and I try to visit a winery or two everywhere we go, so we were very excited to see there was a winery so close to the Outer Banks. We drove by it on the way to Kitty Hawk from Norfolk and stopped. The winery has 13 wines to choose from, and they will let you taste each... More

On my families recent trip to the Outer Banks we passed this vineyard on the way in and decided to come back and check it out. They do free tastings everyday and have quite a variety of wines to choose from. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I am a sweet wine drinker and their white wines were awesome... More

After 8 hrs on the road, it was refreshing to stop for a short time at a local winery. We got to taste all of their wines and the salesperson was very knowledgeable and friendly! I highly recommend this for people of legal age!

The winery offers free tastings everyday. Most of the wines are either dry or very, very sweet. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the wines they sell. You can enjoy a bottle or glass on a seat in front of the tasting room or a picnic lunch on the grounds of the Cotton gin just down the street... More
