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, and a barn-turned-guest house that offers panoramic views of the bay and Old Mission Peninsula.

First Time at Brys!

First time visitors to the Peninsula and Brys…what a wonderful experience! Jordan was the best server we had all week. Great wine especially the Frosé frozen Rosé. Joined the wine club and hopefully will be back to stay on property!

Very Good Wines; try the Bubbly
Jul 2021 • Couples
My wife and I were on a road trip and checked out the Old Mission Peninsula and 3 of it's wineries. We enjoyed Brys Estate the best. We didn't have a reservation, but were welcomed to a table immediately. We got a tower of 5 tastings. We specifically enjoyed the Pinot Noir, Merlot, and their Bubbly. We stayed for a full poor of the Bubbly and Merlot. A bottle of Bubbly is going home with us. Great outdoor deck seating AND a nice grass, picnic area as well.

Terrific Pinot Blanc!
Jul 2021
My wife and I enjoyed a wine tasting at Brys Estate winery. We had reservations for 2pm but, due to finishing our hike at Old Mission State Park early, we arrived at 1pm. We were seated immediately on the upper deck along the railing with a spectacular view of the estate. Once seated, a group has 90 minutes of time at their table - more than ample time to taste some great wines in a relaxing environment. The wines, as well as the method of presentation of the flight tasting, are second-to-none (see photo of how each glass is identified on the stem base). We bought a Pinot Blanc to bring home. Easily the best winery we have visited in the general Traverse City area.

Great wine, service, and views
Jul 2021
Our experience at Brys was fantastic. From the moment we walked in we were greeted and met with exceptional service by Ernest. We chose to do the wagon tour and had the opportunity to visit multiple beautiful spots on the property. Our tour guide, Kevin, was very knowledgeable and had answers to all of our questions. I highly recommend a visit to this incredible winery.

Beautiful patio tasting!

My sister and I had a wonderful tasting experience! The patio was lovely, and the tasting tower was the perfect amount to help us pick which bottles to take home :)

An afternoon on the Upper Deck
Jun 2021
Brys Estates is a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon. A gorgeous view of East Grand Traverse Bay and the vineyard from the Upper Deck, a must when at Brys. The Froze' with a Cabernet topper is the best for a summer afternoon. Their charcuterie boards are delicious, a great compliment to your wine. The Secret Garden down below the vineyard has lavendar products and pick your own strawberries in season as well as cut your own lavendar in season. This is our favorite winery in the area. It's not to be missed. Put it on your list when visiting the Grand Traverse Area.

Favorite Vineyard on Old Mission
Jun 2021 • Couples
If you’re visiting the Old Mission Peninsula for winery tours, don’t miss Brys! Beautiful setting, a large terrace overlooking the vineyard with views of the bay. The frose is fun, and the charcuterie board and wine tasting flight were really delicious. Be sure to check out their “Secret Garden” shop for u-pick flowers and strawberries before you leave.
