Description: From the moment the ground was prepared and planted through each growing season it always comes down to alchemy — with a little human assistance — that causes sun-ripened grapes to convert their sugars into alcohol and become wines worth drinking. Proprietor Sean McRitchie grew up in the NW United States’ wine country and his goal is produce wines that are memorable, true to place, and most of all, enjoyable.

Description: When you pour our wines at your table, you're enjoying a pure expression of our vineyard. Our vineyards come alive in the spring, and produce foliage, flowers and most importantly, fruit, as the season progresses. At the peak of ripeness, we pick our grapes by hand. Depending on type of grape and style of wine, we may ferment the wine slowly on the skins, or quickly extract the juice for a fresh and fruity style. Following fermentation, the wines are transferred to oak barrels, where they develop added complexity through years of careful storage. Once bottled, our wines are stored in cold cellars until they find their way to your glass. Every year is a different story here at Sanctuary - tales of fierce winter snow and nor'easters, starry summer nights and fierce hurricanes, all reminding us of our small but significant place as stewards of this coastal gem. Come be a part of our new wine tradition - it's a story in the making.
