There are lots of great wineries in Northwest Michigan. I think this is one of the best. Their wines are excellent. Unfortunately with success comes higher prices. I think there wines are worth what they charge but they are starting to be out of the range I am willing to pay.

The tasting is 5 dollars for tasting for 5, but they gave the wine glass to us, which is a great souvenirs. The deck with the view to the vineyard is very lovely.

We visited three wineries and this one by far had the best view from the outside. Just excellent place to have a drink outside. They also serve appetizers. The selections here are more limited and they do have a couple of tours at 1 and 3pm on the weekends.

Stopped in here during our recent trip to Traverse City. Very beautiful! The views are spectacular. We did the 5 tastes for $5 and also the ice wine with cheesecake for $7. Delicious! If you are doing a tour of the wineries in the area, this is a must stop.

Very nice winery operation. At the tasting bar one gets five tastes of regular wine for $5 and you may keep your glass with the winery logo. Premium wines cost extra. The bottles of wines are pricey and range from $20 to $50 but they are very good. They have a wine club so one may subscribe to their new... More

We have been going here for some 8 years...they have stepped up their game...extremely friendly customer service...open to listen and very knowledgeable. Wine list has grown, but not out of hand..patio is a site to see and you need to have some wine and cheese and sit outside....great view. For those who like sweet side wines...u must try the 2011...

So I have been to many wineries around the world but mostly in the US. This has to be in my top three tasting rooms that I have been to. The rooms are well decorated and actually some of the best I have experienced. The wine staff is very knowledgeable about the wines. The whole experience was as organized as... More

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.
