Situated in the heart of historic Grafton along the "Great Rivers Scenic Byway", we are truly a winery designed for all seasons. Sit back and relax while sipping your wine as you take in the view of the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers from one of our spacious patios or from our glass enclosed seating area. No matter what time of year, we provide the view, the ambiance, and of course the wine. Enjoy watching the eagles soar in the winter, the wildlife and surrounding vegetation coming to life in the spring, beautiful sunsets and pleasure boats on the river in the summer, and of course the famous changing of the leaf colors in the fall.

Best fruit wines we've tried

We are sweet wine lovers and have tried many sweet and fruit wines in Missouri and Illinois and these were far the best. The micro brews were very good. Lemon shandy was one of the better we have had as well. Food was good but not the best ever...but a must visit when in Grafton. Plenty of seating... read more

What a magnificent afternoon! We had the Jerk Chicken Wings and a Grafton burger with caramelized onions and jalapeño slices. Lunch with Rendezvous Red wine and finished off with a bottle of Judy's delight, perfect afternoon visit.

We went for a drive up the River Road looking for eagles. Found lunch instead. The staff was very helpful in deciding on which wine to start with. I had the wings with garlic sauce and a salad. Both were very good. The garlic sauce on the wings was just right. She had the cod with their chips. Both were... More

Atmosphere is nice, I like the openness of the restaurant. Food was good, although a little overpriced. Menu said the sandwich came on a bun but actually came on slices of bread. I've eaten lunch there before and a waitress would come to your table and take your order. This time I had to stand in line and wait to... More

We visited during the week and had a very nice lunch. The Harbor Red wine was the only featured wine that they were out of and since it is among the favorites, we will need to return

We've been here a couple of times. The first time they had full service and the second time it was self service. The first time service was friendly and the second time the order taker was kind of abrupt. They are not set up for kids at all even during the day. The food was just passable. We had to... More

First time visiting this place and we will return. The view is wonderful as well as the food. We did not try the wine but did visit the Brewery and had a couple of their craft beers which we liked. The food we ordered was also very good. I would recommend stopping here.

This was our second trip to this winery. The wine has always been great! This was our first time getting food. More casual because you order at the counter. However, the service was good and the food was as well! Great atmosphere with a great view!

We visited The Grafton Winery and Brewhaus this weekend for our annual Employee Appreciation Dinner Party and had a very lovely experience! Totally worth the 1-2 hour drive made by our staff of 40 most of us coming from the Springfield, IL area. I had a great time planning the dinner with Sue, she made the planning experience a delight!... More
