We had a great experience at this elegant winery. The staff was very friendly and the views are spectacular. They have 2 terraces where you can enjoy wine and cheese and take in the bay view. This winery gives you the option of $1 wine shots which was much appreciated as we were visiting a handful of wineries and wanted... More

Put this one on your "don't miss" list of wineries to visit. It was a rainy day so we spent much of our time in the tasting room. But, the view on our approach was amazing! Our server (who lovingly deemed herself the "wine nazi") was VERY knowledgeable & attentive. She made us feel as if we were in her... More

We really enjoyed Brys. The tasting room feels like a comfortable wine cave. The wines, especially the whites, were outstanding. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. All around it was a great experience and worth visiting.

Comfortable tasting room very open and inviting. Great small plate offerings, nicer/fresher than most the other winery's in the area. Currently upper deck under construction. Enjoy the smaller lower deck and a glass of great wine. Lodging available here also.

Visited on the Divas Uncorked Tour with a group of 10. Loved the atmosphere of this winery. We had great wine and food here and excellent service, too. The wineries on Old Mission are large and a little more commercial that Leelenau, but don't miss this stop. Loved it.

I loved the tasting room setup, very open and inviting. We had great service as Erick helped us navigate the many awesome offerings of Brys Estate. Some of our group was even shocked and surprised at what type of wines they enjoyed (not typically liking white wine- but finding one they enjoyed, and buying it too). I would highly recommend...

We stopped her almost by accident as we were already at a few other vineyards on Mission peninsula. That tasting room is beautiful with nice views and they are installing a new outdoor deck. Would highly recommend stopping at Brys if you are on the peninsula and trying the red wine tasting.

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
