“Very nice!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We bought the $5 glasses and wine tasting. They had the wine paired with food and had the recipes printed just in case you wanted them. And we did. If they offer the cheese cake and wine sample, get it! It was perfect to end our visit there with it.

“Best Vineyard on the Peninsula”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Entering Brys' magnificent tasting room with its exquisite view overlooking the East Bay gives one the feel of visiting an old European chateau. Sipping their wine adds to that feeling as one experiences estate wine-making at its finest. Truly a treasure on the Point!

The best winery in Michigan...period. They are a class above the rest. You DO get what you pay for, and with Brys you get great wine!

“My new favorite winery in Traverse City”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Loved the atmosphere of this winery and the paired wine/food tasting. $5.00 for 5 stations of wine paired with food. Well worth the experience and the price for what you receive. Can't wait to recreate the Cream of Mushroom & Herb Soup receipe...

“Great view, expensive wine”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We enjoyed the spectacular view and California-style tasting room. The wines demonstrated the talents of the winemaker, but with stingy tasting portions, we had a tough time committing to a $30 bottle. Too bad.

At Brys Estate we strive to create handcrafted premium wines that are 100% estate grown and bottled. Although we do sell our premium small production wines for $30 or more, we do offer many wines in the $14.99 - $22 price range.
