Meet The Team!
Mike & Lori
Mike and Lori started the Grafton Winery in 2008 with the downtown location. Their love for wine inspired them to create the Grafton Winery brand that everyone loves today. When distribution started and took off, they were in need of a much larger production space, which brought about our Vineyards location in 2015. Our vineyards location has four acres of grapes, a 5,000 sq ft pavilion, tasting room, and large production area! Mike and Lori are passionate about their wine, and it shows in the finished product!

Jason is the longest tenured employee at the winery! Jason started off as a server for the winery, primarily working down in the brewhaus. He slowly worked his way into assisting in the beer work for the winery, when that then turned into helping owner Mike with wine. Jason then turned his primary focus to wine and beer work and stepped away from the Brewhaus. Jason is married to his wife Katie and enjoys playing music with his band as well as art!
