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....More

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.

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...More

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...More

We were here in 2007 after they had been open for a few years. They have come a long long ways since then. Their wine is superb. Owners are still great people. I would highly recommend this place.
