Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery. Spanning 91 acres, Brys Estate is one of the largest contiguous winery estates on Old Mission Peninsula. 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. The Brys experience includes an old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck with Bridge Above the Vines, and a barn-turned-guest house that offers panoramic views of the bay and Old Mission Peninsula.

We had a wonderful experience at this great vineyard. The decor is beautiful with great views from the elevated patio overlooking the vineyard with the bay in the background. Service was excellent and the wines exceeded our expectations. Our favorite in the region.

We had a private party tasting here, our hostess was very friendly and catered to our large party. The wine was tasty and scenery was very nice. They have a cute store down the hill that's cute to browse.

Spent an hour tasting their excellent wines and talking to a very knowledgeable and friendly hostess. I do not remember her name, but she has two daughters in the wine/restaurant business that she was very proud of.
