Tasting room is beautiful. Friendly servers too. Even though it is winter, the grounds and the view is spectacular.

Definitely not a place to miss on a weekend wine adventure! However I was somewhat disappointed with the prices for the wines.

I wish I could give Brys a 3.5 instead of just 3 or 4. The winery offers a $5 tasting, which is pretty standard and includes a glass you get to keep. The wine is on the pricier side of what you'll find in the area, but not completely out of whack. That said we did find their red wines,... More

My wife and I along with two friends visited Bry's for wine tasting. We were pleasantly surprised at the very reasonably priced tasting special. For $5 per person, we received a wine glass to take home and four tastings which were paired with small food offerings. This not only shuttled most of us through the tasting process orderly but it...

We toured on a weekday at start of off season. Loved avoiding the crowds, but missed the excitement of other travelers. However, Carrie A. made our visit to Brys memorable. We felt so welcome. She took our photo, gave us ideas of meals to pair with wines, and shared stories. The wines were great. Like some other places, there was... More

Compared to other wineries that we visited I felt that the employees were not very welcoming and friendly.

A tasting room that is above the average "stand at a bar and select five wines". At Bry's we were charged $5 each but all of us received a glass (that was ours to keep), they paired the wine with food samples, and we walked through the winery from one station to the next for our samples. The wines were... More

We have been to the Leelanau peninsula wineries several times, and decided to check out Old Mission. What a wonderful surprise to visit the Brys Winery! It was a busy, beautiful fall Saturday, and crowded with tourists, but I felt the winery did a great job handling the crowds. The staff did not try to hurry us through the tastings,... More

Brys has the best wines on the Old MIssion Peninsula, in our opinion. There is usually a wait to taste in the busy season, but if you go in the off season it's usually a special treat. The staff spend extra time and will open different bottles, depending on your tastes. One of the only wineries in the area to... More

Do not miss this winery on your Old Mission Wine Tour! The staff at this winery is fantastic, wines are great and atmosphere outstanding! Judy, Linda, Cheryl, Cindy and all of the rest of the staff know how to make it work. Beautiful setting and gardens are a great plus!
