“Kind of snobbish”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Cheese/crackers in a wrapper for $5 hardly worth it. Didn't feel valued at all as customers. Won't go back.

“Nice building”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Just off the main road. Beautiful tasting room and location. They charge 5 for their tasting but you get a glass. Wines are little different than most of the other wineries. I was disappointed because they gave you such a small amount I really had trouble getting a good idea about the wine.

“Great little vineyard”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have been here a couple of times. Most recently, Nov 3rd 2012. The tasting room has a great atmosphere. The wines are good, the people are friendly, and it's nestled in a beautiful, quaint area just off the main road. A wonderful spot for a glass of wine, overlooking the vines & the bay.

“Favorite winery in Traverse City area”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had the best wine tasting experience this past weekend at Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery. Everyone at this winery is very friendly and helpful. Always a warm welcome is extended when you arrive. This is my husbands and my most favorite winery. Love their wine and found many new favorites this weekend and even some I didn't think I would like but with help and education from the staff, gained an appreciation for wines I have never thought to try. I would highly recommend visiting this winery and buying their wines.

“Wine tasting.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Off season day with only few other visitors. Felt a little snobish for us, as we are just common folks that enjoy wine.... not really a hobby for us. The wines are good but we don't try to get into too much analysis, just do we like it.
