Brys estate has great wine and a large variety to pick from. My mother, husband, and I all found something we liked. Try the charcuterie combo with your tasting. It was a great place to visit on a very rainy Tuesday afternoon in late May. The staff were very friendly...give it a try!

This beautiful estate is a must see during your wine tour through Old Mission Peninsula. The tasting room has recently been renovated and is just perfect. The views from the estate are even more great. The tasting includes 5 wines for $5. The merlot is spectacular; the best red I tried from Old Mission area. The meat and cheese plates are also perfect. I highly recommend the soft fontina cheese, the Gouda, hard salami, and the prosciutto. This is accompanied with pickles, bread and grainy mustard- delic!! Oh and you get to keep the wine glass as a souvenir!

One of our favorite stops of the wineries in Old Mission. A great variety to taste and buy from. As a dry red wine drinker I was impressed with many of their white wine varieties as I purchased more white than red. Definitely make this one of your stops.

There are a ton of different winery around the area but this one is the best by far. Erik the wine presenter was great! You pay 5$ to try 5 wines and you get to keep the wine glass. I would recommend this place to everyone. Plus, it's absolutely beautiful.

Visited Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery during August, 2012 with 12 members of my family reunion. This winery was one the our top highlights of our week long reunion in the Traverse City area. We went on a warm, sunny summer day and were warmly greeted by Patrick Brys (son of the owner), who suggested we take a private tour of the vineyards & winery. We had knowledgeable Erick as our tour guide and he took us out to the vineyards and explained the many interesting details of their harvest. Then he took us through their winery building and answered our many questions about their wine making process and bottling. We got the special privilege of being taken to their private wine tasting room with just our family. It was a beautiful, cozy room filled with many barrels of wine. We tasted several of their wonderful wines. My personal favorites were the Pinot Noir and Semi-dry Riesling. We all bought bottles of wine. We are planning to go back during our reunion in the summer of 2013. Be sure to visit this small winery out on beautiful Old Mission Peninsula!
