Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery. Spanning 91 acres, Brys Estate is one of the largest contiguous winery estates on Old Mission Peninsula. Opened in 2005, we're a family-run business that crafts wines from our 58,000 vines planted less than a mile from Lake Michigan. The Brys experience includes an old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck with Bridge Above the Vines, and a barn-turned-guest house that offers panoramic views of the bay and Old Mission Peninsula.

Beautiful elaxing Deck/Patio Space

Inside the feeling is intimate and warm. Outside on the deck/patio the view is very relaxing. Overall, one of the nicer vineyards to visit.

We head up to Traverse City every summer from St. Louis. Love to hit our favorite wineries on OMP every year to refill our cellar!! Brys is a beautiful stop, and the wine is great, but a bit pricey compared to some of our other local favorites. The outdoor space is great for our kids to read and relax while... More

Visited Brys Winery in October and it was nothing short of a great experience. The winery is absolutely beautiful with a great view of the vineyard and lake. I enjoyed the wine tasting and relaxed at the patio with an order of a charcuterie board. The warm cider wine and rose are my favourite and a must try!

From the four vineyards we visited on our trip this one was our favorite. Had a nice small quaint feel with good wine and friendly knowledgeable staff.

Brys Estate is by far one of my favorite wineries. The view is beautiful! We came at the very end of October and the colors were gorgeous on the trees. And the apple cider drink was awesome!!

This was our first winery experience and it was amazing!!!! The wine and workers were so incredible. Made you feel right at home and cozy. The wine was delicious and so was the hard cider. It's a must see/do.

A must stop-stunning outdoor scenery-organized inside wine tasting-get their ice wine and cheescake combo if available-grab a glass of wine and sit outside on panoramic deck reaching out into the vines

This is a pretty cool place to visit. The wine tasting was set up a little different in that you traveled in a Loop to individual tasting stations for a brief overview, then taste. The main building is really nice, and the outdoor decking places you amongst the grapes. Again - VERY NICE place to visit.

Small winery with excellent wine. Four of us did the 5 glass tasting. Every variety was wonderful but the $50 Merlot was the best I have ever tried from any country. Staff is very knowledgeable, explaining how each was blended, the vintage and their quantities produced. One of our best tasting experiences of all the Mission Peninsula wineries.
