On a Friday afternoon, the seating on the deck of this place was packed with good reason. Can't beat the view! The flat breads were delicious. Their wine selection was good and service was quick despite the crowd. It is worth the steep uphill drive to this spot! Thanks to tripadvisor for the info which led us here.

Great food, great prices, great view and friendly staff. Many food and drink choices with something for everyone. Plenty of parking with options of indoor and outdoor seating. The truffle butter cheese drizzled with honey was amazing. The flatbread pizza was crispy and perfectly topped. The artichoke spinach dip was creamy and not heavy. Definitely worth a trip.

We visited on a beautiful Saturday afternoon so of course it was very crowded. We were able to find a seat outside and order some of the small plates and a couple glasses of they're wine. Food was all very good and so was the wine. I would recommend asking the server about the wines before ordering. Service was very... More

We had such a great time at the winery! We had been walking around downtown by the river and noticed the sign that it was a quarter mile up the hill. We initially started walking up the hill, but the Aerie shuttle stopped and picked us up. THANK GOODNESS, as it was much farther than a quarter mile but it... More

If you go to Graffton, you absolutely have to visit Aerie's Winery. It has the most gorgeous view, in addition to, good food and excellent wine. This is a must see!

Without a plan, we came here and were of course mesmerized by the view. We stayed twice as long as we originally intended because the environment, the great service, good food and cold drinks made us realize it wasn't going to get any better than this. The service staff was young and fun, attentive and friendly. We grazed through a... More

It may sound strange to go to a winery and not have wine ~ We did (or did not imbibe) and it was great. Arrived as the sun was receding and it was chilly outside on the deck but the view was worth it. We saw a doe and her two fawns below on the grass and that sealed the... More

We enjoyed the view and the sangria. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and shown to our table on the outsize deck. We didn't eat but had a very nice time. Will definitely be back. The view is fantastic!

My wife and I have been to the Aries a few times. This Sunday went for a nice afternoon of wine and snacks. It is still September and things are still very warm. We like this place but facing west over the rivers from the ILL side can be warm...or hot. The tables they have no way to place to... More
