About Us

Our Story


Grafton Winery & Brewhaus opened in December 2008 on the site of the former Grafton Elementary School. This is the second winery for owners Lori and Mike Nikonovich. The first was a smaller "boutique" winery in Edwardsville, Illinois. The Brewhaus, located on the lower level, opened August 2009 and was expanded in 2011 to it's present size. In 2013 we expanded the building again by adding an additional storage area next to the Brewhaus while also creating the "Confluence Patio", the covered patio on the west side of the building. The Confluence Patio is the perfect spot for private parties featuring your own Kitchen, Chef, Server and Bar. In 2015 we expanded again with Grafton Winery "The Vineyards" located just 4 miles away next to Eckert's Grafton Farm. The Vineyards is a more traditional winery setting with great views of the vineyard, lake and the apple and peach orchards. We also have a very comfortable tasting room with indoor and outdoor seating and a pavilion for private events
