Owner description: 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.

I loved the tasting room setup, very open and inviting. We had great service as Erick helped us navigate the many awesome offerings of Brys Estate. Some of our group was even shocked and surprised at what type of wines they enjoyed (not typically liking white wine- but finding one they enjoyed, and buying it too). I would highly recommend a visit here! I will be back!

We stopped her almost by accident as we were already at a few other vineyards on Mission peninsula. That tasting room is beautiful with nice views and they are installing a new outdoor deck. Would highly recommend stopping at Brys if you are on the peninsula and trying the red wine tasting.

Tasting room is beautiful. Friendly servers too. Even though it is winter, the grounds and the view is spectacular.

Definitely not a place to miss on a weekend wine adventure! However I was somewhat disappointed with the prices for the wines.

I wish I could give Brys a 3.5 instead of just 3 or 4. The winery offers a $5 tasting, which is pretty standard and includes a glass you get to keep. The wine is on the pricier side of what you'll find in the area, but not completely out of whack. That said we did find their red wines, to be quite enjoyable, which is special for an area that specializes in whites and fruit wines. Unfortunately, I do have to agree with a previous reviewer about the atmosphere though. I don't think it's intentional, but it does come across as a bit more snobby as some of the others in the area. On the day we went, there were 2 people working the tasting room, one at the register and one at the counter. At first the person at the counter was very short and almost seemed bothered, but after talking to him for a while the mood lightened and we felt better about the experience. The person at the register awkwardly said nothing, until we walked over to purchase a couple of bottles. Then she was quite pleasant. So, perhaps it's not intentional but just perception. Either way the owners may want to note it and adjust. In the end, the experience was good overall.
