Large Group Policy
Thank you for your interest in bringing your large group to the Grafton Winery. We are very excited to welcome you and have assembled this helpful FAQ to assist you in arranging your booking and to ensure the best possible experience for you and your guests, from beginning to end. Please review the following details carefully before reaching out to book your large group reservation by emailing [email protected]
- What qualifies as a large group?
Large groups are parties of 9-20. All groups that come to the winery are not allowed to move and save tables until 100% of your group has arrived
- What if I have more than 20 in my group?
Groups of 20+ should inquire about booking a private event
Coach buses are welcome Monday-Thursday at either location when we are open. Coach buses are not allowed at our Vineyard location Friday-Sunday. Like other wineries in the area, we strive to provide an amazing customer experience in our tasting room, and want to reduce over crowding. Any buses to our downtown location must call in advance to ensure we have proper staffing. No busses will be allowed to park in our parking lot. There is a city owned gravel parking lot across the street to park.
- Is advanced notice required?
- Yes, 24 hours’ advance notice is required to book a large group event
- How do large group tastings work?
We will work with you to curate a flight based on your group’s preferences and the whole group will be served the same flight.
- What are the tasting fees for a large group?
We offer a $30 per person plus gratuity, tour and tasting package at our Vineyard location. You will get a behind the scenes look at our production facility and vineyard, followed by a wine tasting of six wines of your choosing. Guests will also receive a souvenir wine glass. You must have a minimum of 10 people for the tour and tasting, and these are done between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm Thursday-Sunday.
- When will I be charged?
Tasting fees are charged at time of booking and are non-refundable unless cancelled 24 hours prior to reservation.
- How do I book my large group tasting?

Personal speakers are allowed if at a minimal volume and you are isolated. Any music that is deemed too loud and impacting the other guests experience, will be asked to be shut off.
