Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery. Spanning 91 acres, Brys Estate is one of the largest contiguous winery estates on Old Mission Peninsula. Opened in 2005, we're a family-run business that crafts wines from our 58,000 vines planted less than a mile from Lake Michigan. The Brys experience includes an old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck with Bridge Above the Vines, and a barn-turned-guest house that offers panoramic views of the bay and Old Mission Peninsula.

Spent an hour tasting their excellent wines and talking to a very knowledgeable and friendly hostess. I do not remember her name, but she has two daughters in the wine/restaurant business that she was very proud of.

Brys Estate is one of the prettiest wineries on Old Mission Peninsula. Not only do they have great wines and a beautiful tasting room, but a spectacular deck to enjoy your wine and the wonderful view. They also have the Secret Garden where you can roam the flower fields and get fresh cut flowers and other garden delights.

We've visited several wineries in Traverse City/Petoskey and this by far is in the top 2. The wine is spectacular and the atmosphere in the tasting room is cozy and warm. We also enjoyed a charcuterie board in a private tasting room and that was a nice experience. We will be back!

You want to be sure that you visit this amazing winery whenever you go up to TC. The wife and I travel up to the area two times per year and always drop in to Brys Estate. Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly staff. OH and great wine too :)

Inside the feeling is intimate and warm. Outside on the deck/patio the view is very relaxing. Overall, one of the nicer vineyards to visit.

We head up to Traverse City every summer from St. Louis. Love to hit our favorite wineries on OMP every year to refill our cellar!! Brys is a beautiful stop, and the wine is great, but a bit pricey compared to some of our other local favorites. The outdoor space is great for our kids to read and relax while... More

Visited Brys Winery in October and it was nothing short of a great experience. The winery is absolutely beautiful with a great view of the vineyard and lake. I enjoyed the wine tasting and relaxed at the patio with an order of a charcuterie board. The warm cider wine and rose are my favourite and a must try!

From the four vineyards we visited on our trip this one was our favorite. Had a nice small quaint feel with good wine and friendly knowledgeable staff.

Brys Estate is by far one of my favorite wineries. The view is beautiful! We came at the very end of October and the colors were gorgeous on the trees. And the apple cider drink was awesome!!
