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.

Compared to other wineries that we visited I felt that the employees were not very welcoming and friendly.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

A tasting room that is above the average "stand at a bar and select five wines". At Bry's we were charged $5 each but all of us received a glass (that was ours to keep), they paired the wine with food samples, and we walked through the winery from one station to the next for our samples. The wines were all top notch as well!

“Wonderful surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We have been to the Leelanau peninsula wineries several times, and decided to check out Old Mission. What a wonderful surprise to visit the Brys Winery! It was a busy, beautiful fall Saturday, and crowded with tourists, but I felt the winery did a great job handling the crowds. The staff did not try to hurry us through the tastings, and were very knowledgeable and polite. And the wines were amazing! I am so glad we tried Brys, and I hope to go back someday when they are not so busy.

“Best Old Mission wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Brys has the best wines on the Old MIssion Peninsula, in our opinion. There is usually a wait to taste in the busy season, but if you go in the off season it's usually a special treat. The staff spend extra time and will open different bottles, depending on your tastes. One of the only wineries in the area to give you the souvenir glass with the tasting.

Do not miss this winery on your Old Mission Wine Tour! The staff at this winery is fantastic, wines are great and atmosphere outstanding! Judy, Linda, Cheryl, Cindy and all of the rest of the staff know how to make it work. Beautiful setting and gardens are a great plus!
