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.

My husband and I stopped in to taste and were helped by Becky. She was very helpful and knowledgeable of the local wines. I'm a very picky Sauvignon Blanc drinker, and theirs was really tasty!

We had a party of 8 seated outside for a glass of wine and cheese plates. Great wine, excellent cheese plate, okay service, beautiful view. Our only comment was the server was slow and not very friendly, easily overcome by the setting and wine!More
