Of all the wineries on old Mission Peninsula, this was by far the best tasting experience we have enjoyed.

Great place for a tasting! The wines are all delicious, and the staff are all very friendly and informative. Eric lead our tasting, and was not only knowledgeable and able to guide us through wines we may like, but was also very friendly and outgoing. If you get a chance, get on his group, although the others looked to be... More

For $2 we got to sample 5 wines. Than for $5 we kept the wine glass. The people were very nice. We bought a glass of wine and set out on the patio afterwards. Fabulous view. The drive there on Old Mission Peninsula was very nice.

Great visit for a wine tasting! The malbec/cab was a great selection with the pino grigio amother favorite. We're bringing 4 bottles home! But no more glasses going home. Too bad! Those glasses were a reminder of a nice visit several years ago.

It's been a few years since I visited this winery and they've changed the process for sampling the wines ( for the better). You visit four stations through parts of the facility and at each station are two wines of which you at select one to sample; a staff member describes each to help you decide. In addition they added... More

Five wines and you get to keep the glass for $5. Very nice staff. Incredibly beautiful buildings and surroundings. Rainy the day we visited or we would have enjoyed sitting on the terrace.

The setting of this winery is absolutely gorgeous. I wish I lived closer to Traverse City because I would regularly come out and enjoy their deck on beautiful northern Michigan days. The tasting was quite good, though expensive by Peninsula standards. Worth it, though. After the tasting, I enjoyed a cheese and charcuterie board on the deck overlooking the bay.... More

For $5 you taste 4 wines and leave with a wine glass. They have each visitor walk thru and stop at 4 stations. Staff at the first three stations describe two wines from which you choose. At the 4th station you can choose from any of the wines they offer. Unlike some of the tasting rooms your group's progress depends... More

I have visited Traverse City a number of times over the last few years, and when wine tasting is on the books, Brys is always worth a visit. I've been in spring, fall, and winter and it always offers gorgeous views, friendly staff, and great wine. If you are there during the harvest festival, they do a wine and food... More
