Great new deck will be THE place this Summer!

Always great wine, some of the best in Michigan. Love the richness of the tasting room. Can't wait to check out the new deck overlooking the vineyard this Summer!

We have enjoyed Brys for many years. The tasting room is gorgeous, and they recently added an upper deck and second tasting room with wonderful views. The staff is always great and the owners are often right there interacting with the staff and customers. It was the first place we had a really good red wine made in Michigan, I... More

Best winery on old mission peninsula. Love the wood tasting bar and the entire tasting room has a great vibe to it. The new outdoor space and patio walk are great additions. Staff is a little cold at times, especially if you don't look like you belong there, but the excellent wines make up for it. The reds are a... More

We stopped by to taste the reds as they are well known for them. The pinots were quite tasty as were the whites. Julie made us feel at home and spent lots of time talking about the wines. On a cold winter day, it was great to look out over the vineyards and East Bay.

My boyfriend and I went to the winery for our first tasting ever. The wine was great and we really enjoyed the cheese sampler. Unfortunately, the staff member we had was not the most friendly. However, we definitely would recommend trying out the winery as it was a beautiful surrounding and enjoyable to experience.

I often find myself bringing out of town guests for a wine tasting on the Old Mission Peninsula and I always make sure Brys is on the list, even if we only have time for one or two and it always seems to be everyone's favorite. Of all of the wineries on the peninsula it is the only one where... More

Loved the Merlot! Bought two bottles. This is one of the most beautiful wineries in the area. They definitely know what they are doing with the Reds.

My wife and I visited Brys Estate during a trip to Northern MI to celebrate our anniversary. Brys Estate has always been our favorite vineyard to visit and this trip was much the same. With the addition of their new deck overlooking the vineyard the visit was even better than before. The various wines are favorites of my wife and... More

The grapes were shrouded in some sort of protective cover here that gave the estate a charming Halloween look. Guests are able to walk out on a deck to get a good view of the grapes and it is quite lovely. Rather than the standard tasting, we opted for a small glass of ice wine and a slice of cheesecake:...
