We went here because of its tank on trip advisor. If you like red wine this is not the place to go as there were only three options. This was the highest priced tasting we attended and our least favorite.

The view and wine are very nice. Their apps out on the deck are delicious. The service however, leaves much to be desired. After drinks on the deck where our waitress was more interested in talking to her friends then bringing us water, we went to the lobby to buy wine. We stood at the register with two bottles of...

Stopped here to try their ice wine. What a lovely view sitting on the deck looking out over the landscape sipping ice wine and nibbling on cheesecake!

Amazing view, service, and atmosphere. Price is a little higher than other places nearby but definitely worth it! You could spend all day there.. And the cheese and snack food is delicious! Definitely try the naked Chardonnay and Cabernet franc. Favorite TC winery!

Having been to a number of wineries across the country we were looking for something new to blow us away and Brys Estates did just that. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with personal service. Keven who facilitated out tasting was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The wine we tasted in our flight was DELICIOUS.

There are a dozen or so wineries with lots of hype. This one delivers like a Napa winery. Do a tasting and then pick one to enjoy with the cheese plate overlooking the vineyard and lake in the distance. Truly perfect.

Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery was a wonderful place to visit. The tasting room is small and neat, while the back deck/eatery is wonderful a sunny Michigan day which you can see by viewing the photos I've attached. A great place to visit with friends and enjoy the back deck with some snack and a glass or bottle of wine.

We stopped here on a tour of Old Mission wineries. Great wine and good view on the back patio for a glass of wine and snack. Cheese apps are great. We enjoyed the Cab/Merlot wine here.

this is a wonderful experience. The wines from here are very good, and you can taste 4 for 5 dollars. They also have an outdoor deck where you can relax with a glass of wine and a tray of snacks, while looking over the grapevines. I will definitely be going back?
