We sampled all the wines. I really loved the OBX Ice which is a tasty sweet wine. My husband chose Morton, which is a red blend. Don't skip this free tasting! Ask for Elton! Great server.

What a great place to have an event. Ample parking, courteous staff and uniquely decorated, too. If like wine, I would definitely recommend you stop here on your way to the OBX.

We had some time to kill while we were vacationing for a quick getaway this weekend in Kitty Hawk North Carolina. We went up to the sanctuary Vineyard storefront and did a wine tasting. The tasting was really good but was not staffed very well....More

We stop here a couple times a year while in the area. It is always a good stop. You get to taste some good wines. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Visited while visiting Nags Head in October. Tasted a few wines and bought some for gifts. Wines are good and not extremely expensive. Will stop by again when in the area.

We recommend Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk, it is approximately 15 minutes south of Sanctuary Vineyards.
We'd like to go AFTER work Friday. We wouldn't get there until 5:30. The vineyard closes at 6, so would we still be able to try a few wines? Thanks Courtney

Sure! You'll still be able to do a tasting between 5:30 and 6:00, and we'll be getting ready for the following evenings event, Prom for Grown Ups, so we'll likely be open a little later.
